Twitter is reaching out to some workers it fired on Friday asking them to return, a report by Bloomberg revealed. This comes after Twitter’s co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey apologised publicly for growing the company too quickly.

Based on sources familiar with the moves, the report said, some employees who are being asked to return were laid off by mistake. Others were let go before management realised that their work and experience may be necessary to build the new features Musk envisions.

Twitter on Friday fired employees on a large scale via email to cut down the company’s costs. According to reports, many employees learned they lost their job after their access to company-wide systems, like email and Slack, were suspended.

The company’s plan to hire back workers was previously reported by Platformer. However, Bloomberg reported that a Twitter spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.
