Twitter to lay off employees from India Centres


Twitter Inc said it would lay off some employees and stop engineering work at one of its development centres in Bengaluru, India’s technology hub.

The layoffs will impact less than 20 employees at the development centre, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The employees were part of ZipDial which is an Indian mobile communications startup bought by Twitter last year.

“Over the past 18 months, we have incorporated the technology and talent of our ZipDial acquisition across our company,” said a company spokesperson.

Twitter said it will remain committed to India as a strategic market and would continue to maintain a presence in the city.
The company had 3,860 employees globally as of June 2016. However, it did not disclose the number of employees it had in India.
