“At this point, I think we should prepare ourselves for the possibility that this new economic reality will continue for many years. Higher interest rates lead to the economy running leaner, more geopolitical instability leads to more volatility, and increased regulation leads to slower growth and increased costs of innovation.

Now, the press release is long, but here are some key messages:
1. META employed on average +26% YoY; still, more room to cut

2. if Twitter can be run with 20-30% of initial stuff, why not META? Shareholders are asking for it

4. Other companies will copy Twitter and Meta in this regard.
