Elon Musk wants to close one of the three main Twitter data centers.

Published: 2022-11-23

New Twitter CEO Elon Musk, who bought the service for $44 billion, is looking for further ways to cut costs. As reported, one of the three main Twitter data centers, a site in Sacramento (California, USA), may soon be closed. Apparently, it was this data center that went down this summer due to abnormal heat, jeopardizing the stability of the social network.


Earlier, Mr. Musk announced his intention to cut Twitter's spending on IT infrastructure by $1 billion a year. Experts have already warned that such drastic austerity measures could lead to a decrease in the reliability of Twitter services and possible failures of the social network at peak times. Closing the data center in Sacramento will only make matters worse. In this case, the company will have two main data centers - in Atlanta (Georgia) and Portland (Oregon). The service also uses AWS and Google Cloud Platform cloud resources.


Elon Musk has already fired about half of Twitter's total staff. The Twitter command center, a 20-person structure tasked with preventing crashes and technical problems during periods of high demand, has lost a lot of specialists. The Essential Services Division now employs only four people, while the structure used to have over 100 employees. In some other divisions, the number of personnel was reduced by 80%, and some structures were completely left without employees. Those workers who remain are promised "long hours of high intensity" and "extremely harsh" conditions.


It is not yet clear how stable Twitter will be during the upcoming periods of high user activity associated with the World Cup and the holiday season. Most likely, subscribers will face new failures.
