Elon Musk is shaking things up at Twitter.
"Elon Musk has reportedly ordered massive job cuts across Twitter immediately after his official takeover of the company on Thursday," reported Breitbart.
"The Tesla CEO is also requesting that managers review employees of the social media company," Breitbart reported.
"Musk has ordered job cuts across the company," Breitbart reports, "with some teams to be curtailed more than others, three people — who refused to be identified — with knowledge of the matter told the New York Times."
Managers are being asked to submit lists of employees they can cut, according to reports.
Twitter is comprised of approximately 7500 employees.
"Twitter not only has too many employees for its level of revenue according to Silicon Valley wisdom, but also has an employee base comprised of radical leftists, such as those who wrote an open letter to Musk demanding their jobs remain intact," according to Breitbart.
"I was told to expect somewhere around 50 percent of people will be laid off," said Ross Gerber, chief executive of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth and Investment Management.
The Twitter layoffs are expected to take place before Nov. 1, which is when employees had been set to receive stock grants.
"On Wednesday Musk arrived at Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco, where he began meeting employees. The following day, he fired the company’s top executives, such as CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and Vijaya Gadde, head of 'trust and safety,' who was notorious for her fanatical left-wing censorship campaign, which included suspending former President Donald Trump’s account," Breitbart reported.
Additionally, Musk had Tesla engineers review Twitter's software code. The Tesla engineers locked out Twitter engineers, which will keep them from making any further changes to the platform.
