Koo – touted by many as India’s answer to Twitter – will hire some of the workers laid off by the Elon Musk-owned company, said Mayank Bidawatka, co-founder, Koo.
“Very said to see #RIPTwitter and related to # to this going down. We’ll hire some of these Twitter ex-employees as we keep expanding and raise our larger, next round. They deserve to work where their talent is valued. Micro-blogging is about people power. Not suppression,” tweeted Bidawatka on Friday.
Bidawatka’s post came after #RIPTwitter trended on the microblogging website throughout Friday after hundreds of employees exited the tech giant over Musk’s ultimatum to them to work for ‘long hours at high intensity’ or leave.

Also, in recent days, several top companies, including Twitter, Meta, and Amazon, have laid off their staffers. Koo has become the latest organisation to announce it will provide employment opportunity to the laid off employees.
