The staff at Twitter’s only office in Africa – in Accra, Ghana is reported to have received a termination notice to their personal emails although it didn’t mention any of them by name. The company is reorganizing its operations as a result of a need to reduce costs. It is with regret that we’re writing to inform you that your employment is terminating as a result of this exercise, the email told Twitter Africa staff, CNN has learned. The development comes a few days after the African team opened physically at the Ghana office. In April 2021, the micro-blogging site established its African headquarters in Accra, Ghana. The Twitter purge would affect up to 3,700 people, about half its global workforce. Despite lay off in the Africa office, a source told TheCable, A Nigeria-based news agency that there are no indications of a total shutdown. The source said like the global staff, employees at the office got letters stating that they may be axed. “We got locked out of their computers, emails, and slack like the global staff as well,” the employee said. “Some also got a mail saying they could be terminated in a month or not.” Bernard Kafui Sokpe, Senior Partner Manager at Twitter’s Africa headquarters, took to his respective social media pages to make the announcement. Sokpe, in a tweet on Friday, said he had the best career experience working with the micro-blogging platform. “It’s been a year working at a place I never imagined I’ll ever get to work. I’m glad that I could represent Africa & I didn’t let us down,” he said. “My best career experience by far & it was beautiful whilst it lasted. Much love to all the amazing tweeps that made it worth it. #OneTeam.” Gabriel Quarshie, Product Manager also posted on his LinkedIn timeline that he no longer worked for the company. “My time at Twitter has come to an end,” Quarshie said.
