This Twitter News Isn’t Good

Rumors about Twitter laying off 8% of its staff are slightly worse than expected. Today, TechCrunch reports that despite a positive earnings report, the company is laying off about 9% of its employees across its marketing, sales, and partnerships departments.

Twitter continues to be a pillar for politicians, celebrities, and anyone else with an opinion to broadcast their voice to the masses.

Between the layoffs and shuttering operations of looping video platform Vine, CEO Jack Dorsey is likely trying to limit the money Twitter is bleeding each month — and perhaps make it more enticing as an acquisition opportunity for a company such as Google or Apple.
