Meanwhile, users are experiencing difficulties accessing Twitter, with many reporting that the social media is “down” due to the layoffs. While some employees are desperate to be let go and receive severance pay, others don’t seem to agree with Elon Musk and may file lawsuits.

One class action suit has already been filed, with attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan representing the plaintiff. The case, Cornet v.
