Jack Dorsey Twitter's co-founder apologize after Elon Musk’s layoffs

Jack Dorsey, Twitter's co-founder and former CEO, apologize after Elon Musk’s layoffs affected 50% of the company's employees.

Twitter's new head, Elon Musk, eliminated about 3,700 employees on Friday, shortly after taking control of the company.

Dorsey said earlier this year that he trusted Musk with Twitter's future.

In his last tweet, Dorsey apologized, writing, "Folks at Twitter past and present are strong and resilient." They will always find a way, no matter how difficult the moment. I realise many are angry with me.

He further added, "I own the responsibility for why everyone is in this situation: I grew the company size too quickly." "I apologise for that."

"I am grateful for, and love, everyone who has ever worked on Twitter. I don't expect that to be mutual in this moment...or ever...and I understand."
