Twitter May Kick 300 Employees Out of Its Nest


Twitter appears close to slashing another 300 jobs, or about 8 percent of its workforce, as it works to recover from a failed round of acquisition talks with several suitors. The job cuts likely would be in sales. Twitter might be taking steps to make itself look more attractive to investors in preparation for its third-quarter earnings report later this week, which is expected to disappoint once again. “Twitter was a challenged company before it was put into play by takeover suitors,” said Tim Mulligan, senior analyst at Midia Research.

Intel Pivots From PCs to Cloud


Intel this week announced that it would slash 12,000 jobs as part of a restructuring plan to focus more on cloud-based computing and the Internet of Things and less on PCs. The cuts, which will involve about 11 percent of Intel’s global workforce by mid-2017, will be achieved through a combination of voluntary retirements and layoffs, the consolidation of numerous job sites, and a re-evaluation of existing and planned programs. The move will result in $750 million in savings by the end of 2016, Intel said.
