Former Twitter chief executive officer Jack Dorsey has gone on the platform recently acquired by billionaire Elon Musk to apologize for the state of the site, which has laid off thousands of workers.
At least one class-action lawsuit has been filed against Twitter on behalf of former employees who say they were not given adequate notice of their termination.
UK-based Twitter workers who face losing their jobs have been given three days to nominate a representative for a formal consultation about their employment.
Musk has defended the layoffs, tweeting that fired employees are receiving three months of severance as the company reportedly loses over $4m a day.
But several companies have announced that they will no longer be advertising on Twitter amid fears that misinformation and hate speech will proliferate on the app as protections against each are scaled back.
Audi, General Motors, General Mills and other advertisers have halted ads on the site.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and other groups have also pushed for advertisers to pause their spending on the site in the face of the hate speech concerns.
