Last week, Musk fired hundreds of employees after taking control of Twitter.

Defending his decision to fire employees, Musk said that it was needed as Twitter was losing more than $4 million (roughly Rs. 32,755 crore) per day. "Regarding Twitter's reduction in force, unfortunately, there is no choice when the company is losing over USD 4M/day. Everyone exited was offered 3 months of severance, which is 50 percent more than legally required," Musk tweeted.

On Saturday, Twitter also began rolling out the paid subscription system where the users will have to pay $8 (roughly Rs. 655) for the blue tick.
