This change is a result of Musk’s aim to lower Twitter’s expenses globally, but it has reduced the company’s product and engineering team in a market with enormous growth potential.
According to persons with knowledge of the situation who spoke to Bloomberg under the condition of anonymity, the company currently employs just over a dozen people in India, when it had just over 200 employees before the drastic reduction. India is regarded as one of the world’s most promising countries for the expansion of the technology sector. Many Big Tech companies, including Twitter, Google, and Meta Platforms, rely on India’s enormous potential to attract new users online as one of the most potential-driven countries in the world for growth in the tech sector.
However, the nation’s rigorous restrictions also apply to these businesses. The most recent employment cuts for Twitter in India targeted the product and engineering departments. The corporation has reduced its workforce in San Francisco by around half of its overall number.
