Technology Editor with the Business Post, Emmet Ryan, says the cuts seem to be excessive.
"If it's this many affected, a few dozen, it'll probably be regionally focused."
But he said what region is the question.
Emmet continued, "with the level of cuts so far, you'd have to start wondering how Twitter's remaining people are functioning."
"Obviously given users' complaints, it's not really functioning at the level it needs to, and these cuts are excessive."
