On Thursday, five former employees, including an engineer who also draws satirical cartoons, filed a lawsuit alleging that Twitter failed to provide adequate notice of the job cuts.
Celebrities have also spoken out against Musk’s plan to charge $8 per month for blue ticks. The billionaire has been compared to a fictional character who asks friends to do chores and then charges them.
Musk also chastised businesses for withdrawing their advertising from the platform. “Twitter has seen a massive drop in revenue as a result of activist groups pressuring advertisers, despite the fact that nothing has changed with content moderation and we did everything we could to appease the activists,” he tweeted.
