Purging Twitter of conservatives has consequences as 300 Twitter employees will soon discover.
From Bloomberg News:
Twitter may eliminate about 300 people, the same percentage it did last year when co-founder Jack Dorsey took over as chief executive officer, according to people familiar with the matter. Planning for the cuts is still fluid and the number could change, they added. The people asked not to be identified talking about private company plans.
An announcement about the job reductions may come before Twitter releases third-quarter earnings on Thursday, one of the people said. A Twitter representative declined to comment.
Twitter, which is unprofitable, is trying to control spending as sales growth slows. The company recently hired bankers to explore a sale, but the companies that had expressed interest in bidding -- Salesforce.com Inc., The Walt Disney Co. and Alphabet Inc. -- later backed out from the process.Blame CEO Jack Dorsey's purges. He set up some fake committee of liberals to review complaints from themselves to bust conservatives. That tarnished the brand.
He took something fun and politicized it. Worse, Dorsey chose the wrong side.
Screwing with conservatives is a dumb business plan. As Target discovered, as well as the Susan Komen foundation.
We don't get positive press.
We get results.
Just ask Chick-fil-A.
Liberals decided to boycott it.
Conservatives held a counter protest called Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.
We set sales records.
