Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)
Twitter Inc has plans to lay off hundreds of staff company-wide next week, according to technology news website Re/code.
The news comes following the appointment of Jack Dorsey as permanent chief executive on Monday.
It is unclear how many staff will be laid off, but sources say it is likely it will affect most departments, Re/code reports. Twitter employs about 4,100 people in more than 35 offices globally, according to its website.
Twitter shares fell 3.1% to US $29.90 in extended trading on Friday following the news, with these losses coming on the back of slowing growth for the first since it went public in 2013.
The social media site is working to rekindle growth after its latest quarterly results in July revealed the largest monthly drop in average user growth since it went public in 2013.
Dorsey called that performance “unacceptable” at the time. Twitter’s layoffs come at the same time as it restructures its engineering business to make it more efficient, Re/code reported and it is likely that many of the people impacted by the layoffs will be engineers.
“We’re not commenting on rumor and speculation,” a Twitter spokeswoman told Reuters. At the close of trade Friday, Twitter’s shares had fallen 14% for the year.
