Twitter’s main African office in Ghana is folding up after Elon Musk fired the Africans working in the office.
Twitter had only come to Africa a year ago. Twitter established its African headquarters in Ghana in April 2021.
While it is still unclear how many workers were affected at the Africa Office, reports had it that the social media company planned to cut about 3,700 of its workforce.
According to reports, some of the affected employees had filed a lawsuit challenging the short notice given to them by Twitter before the layoffs.
The lawsuit is leveraging the U.S. Federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act, which restricts large companies from mounting mass layoffs without at least 60 days of advance notice.
