Once Elon Musk has the keys to Twitter, he’s cleaning house.

According to a WaPo report, SpaceX, Tesla, and soon-to-be Twitter billionaire Elon Musk is planning some aggressive cuts to the blur bird’s staff; more than 75% of current employees at the social media giant will be handed their walking papers.

“Elon Musk told prospective investors in his deal to buy the company that he planned to get rid of nearly 75 percent of Twitter’s 7,500 workers, whittling the company down to a skeleton staff of just over 2,000,” WaPo reports.

From The Washington Post:

Even if Musk’s Twitter deal falls through — and there’s little indication now that it will — big cuts are expected: Twitter’s current management planned to pare the company’s payroll by about $800 million by the end of next year, a number that would mean the departure of nearly a quarter of the workforce, according to corporate documents and interviews with people familiar with the company’s deliberations. The company also planned to make major cuts to its infrastructure, including data centers that keep the site functioning for more than 200 million users that log on each day.

Can Musk make Twitter a success story? We’ll know soon enough.
