Twitter Retrenches Around 20, And Shuts Down Engineering Work In Bangalore, India
After making it known that Twitter will finally be extending the 140 character limits on tweets by ensuring images, GIFs, polls, quoted tweets and videos do not add up towards the final word count. Twitter is now shutting down its engineering operations out of Bangalore, India, and it is laying off around 20 engineers in the process.
“As part of our normal business review, we have decided to stop the global engineering work at the Bangalore development center,” a company spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We thank the impacted individuals, less than 20 persons, for their valuable contributions and are doing as much as we can to provide them a respectful exit from our company.”
