Twitter’s Head Of France Quits

Twitter Inc.’s head of France, Damien Viel, has announced his departure from Elon Musk’s embattled platform.

Viel had led the region for about seven years.

Musk is considering additional layoffs to begin as soon as Monday. The layoffs will likely focus on the sales and partnerships side of Twitter’s business.

Viel declined to comment on the circumstances of his departure.

Twitter has seen a staff exodus, apart from an initial round of cuts, which eliminated about 3,700 jobs, after Musk sent an email around to employees requiring them to opt-inn to a “hardcore” culture or accept a severance payment.

More employees, particularly those in technical roles, left than expected, creating fears about risks to the company’s operations.

Big brands are also cutting ties with Twitter. Last week, Paris-based fashion house Balenciaga joined other brands in quitting Twitter, deleting its account after Musk acquired thesocial media platform and upended content rules.

Other companies have paused advertising on the platform, including General Motors, Volkswagen, Pfizer,r, and General Mills.
