Madrid (EFE).- Twitter has fired just over 80% of its workforce in Spain, which has been reduced to five people, three and a half months after its buyer Elon Musk began a staff cut, according to El Confidential.
The layoffs have been confirmed in its office in Madrid, which has already been closed, although it will continue to have five employees focused on sales and business, it adds.
The employment regulation file (ERE) has reached 24 of the 29 workers and will become effective on February 8.
A compensation of 33 days per year worked has been set, compared to the 20 that the company originally intended, according to said media.
Twitter began a wave of layoffs in November, which has resulted in thousands of workers on the street, some staff cuts that have also been made in other technology giants, such as Google, Microsoft and Meta, among others.
