Elon Musk said layoffs
were essential to trim
costs and make profits.
He cited drop in ad
revenue each day as a
major reason for layoffs

However, Twitter has reportedly reached out to dozens of employees who lost their jobs, asking them to come back as they were either fired in error or are too essential for the company

Twitter introduced a new feature called 'Official' badge only to roll it back the same day as it created more confusion than clarity
