As Meta continues with its mass layoffs, international offices are also beginning to feel the pinch

Meta offices in Singapore are the latest to fall victim to layoffs. At least 50 employees are set to lose their jobs.

Those in the city-state who have been impacted found out on Thursday morning via e-mail.

One former employee posted about his experience on LinkedIn.

He says he was getting ready to head out to the office when he decided to check his e-mails and rotation schedule, as he would, any other day.

He adds, “that’s when I saw the dreaded e-mail and the biggest fear of my career come true. I’m one of those affected by the Meta layoffs”.

The individual was a a business integrity specialist at the firm.

Meta’s wide-ranging cuts are hitting a number of departments and roles, with over half of those impacted working in recruitment.

The rest are spread across operations, sales and engineering.

The layoffs will see a total of 11,000 jobs cut, which equates to about 13 per cent of the the firm’s 87,000 person global workforce.

The incident is just the latest in a long line of diplomatic disputes between the two countries.

Now, TikTok could be banned in the U.S. in the wake of the incident.

Republicans are now pushing for Washington to distance itself from the Beijing-based app. #trending #featured

Elon Musk has announced that companies and brands will have to pay $1,000 per month – plus an additional $50 per sub-account – to get verified check-marks on Twitter

The new pricing falls under the new Twitter Blue for Business service.

Within the next few months, only paying Twitter customers will have verified status.

Twitter has stacked on $12.5 billion in debt, and this move hopes to increase subscription revenue to meet Musk’s obligations.

Advertisers halted spending on Twitter after the takeover, but Twitter has since announced partnerships with two brand-safety vendors to win back marketers.

Musk also announced that Twitter would start sharing ad revenue with creators for “ads that appear in their reply threads”, but didn’t provide further detail.
