A few hours ago we informed you that the threat was fulfilled: Elon Musk began to make mass layoffs, to get rid of much of the Twitter workforce and reduce costs and expenses. And, unfortunately, this also affected the Twitter Mexico workforce.
In recent hours, tweets from workers (well, now ex-workers) of Twitter Mexico have begun to go viral, who confirmed that since last Thursday night they have noticed how their access credentials to the platform have begun to be deactivated. Many of them have confirmed the dismissals in one way or another.
Although it is not confirmed, there is speculation that the entire Twitter Mexico team was fired, as even the former director himself, Francisco Jiménez, suffered the same fate. Here are some testimonials:
Thank you for everything Twitter. It has been a ride.

If you are looking to hire talented people that today we leave @TwitterMexico, here are my recommendations for having worked with them and forming a team of strategic and creative excellence, as well as innovation and technology:

So far, the official Twitter account Mexico has not commented on this. In fact, he has been silent for more than a week, since his last tweet is from October 27.
Because Elon Musk wants to reduce the workforce in all areas, workers around the world have suffered the same fate and have begun to confirm it on social networks. To identify the movement, their former colleagues and to give visibility to the very sudden way in which everything happened, the former workers have started using the hashtag #OneTeam.
