Twitter said it will start laying employees off on Friday as billionaire owner Elon Musk moves quickly after his big takeover to make the messaging platform profitable.

A company-wide email says Twitter employees will receive word at the start of business Friday, California time, as to what their fate is. It does not give a number, but the Washington Post and New York Times reported that half of Twitter's 7,500 employees will be let go.
