Published by on

Damien Viel, who led Twitter France for around seven years, announced in a Sunday tweet that he would be leaving.

Pride, honor and mission accomplished,” Viel tweeted, apparently unaware of what “mission accomplished” means.

Musk, who's already slashed Twitter's workforce in half in sweeping job cuts that included much of the company's management, is considering additional layoffs to begin as soon as Monday.

Viel's departure follows mass layoffs of around 3,700 jobs, which was then followed by a company-wide email from new boss Elon Musk requiring employees to opt in to a “hardcore” work environment, or take a pay cut.
