What's the reason for this e-mail being housed on a .gov TLD?

> A WARN notification is required if more than 500 people (or 33% of the "active workforce") are being laid off. Check your state's Department of Labor (or whatever it is called in your state) to see the notices that have been filed by employees in your state. (from http://www.job-hunt.org/layoffs/pending-layoff-signs.shtml)

For California: http://www.edd.ca.gov/jobs_and_training/Layoff_Services_WARN...

It's not a WARN notification, it's an SEC filing.

WARN wouldn't even apply here since the cutoff is 500 or 33% of active workforce. Twitter's cuts are below both.

Thanks for correcting me.

Communication regulations around public stocks.

It is a communication that will have a material impact on the stock price.

SEC runs a free TweetLonger service for public companies. They are required to use it if they make important announcements that will impact the stock.
