Twitterverse: Layoffs at NPR

Twitter's themediaisdying reported that NPR laid off 65 people by the end of the day today, and here it is documented on the site via The Editorialiste's Twitter feed:

Thirty-four staffers were cut from news, but no
cuts were made to digital media staffers, according to the report.

Either way, it's strange to see it happen in real time -- notice in the picture that the updates were just a minute apart.

A sad, sad day.

It feels personal seeing the names of dismissed NPR staffers who I've grown used to hearing in my living room.
