Any info on whether this is just to appease shareholders or actual redundancies?

Twitter has what, 4000 employees? Clearly some of them are not strong performers, or at least less strong than others. So you can gain more productivity per employee by cutting the weak - but you of course risk the best employees becoming disenfranchised and looking for work elsewhere.

I wouldnt think of it as being that black/white. However I do think this is a <strong> move on Jack's part.

Until he runs for office and then it'll be in his negatives column.
