Job cuts possibly coming to Meta. Facebook’s parent company is not commenting on a report that large scale layoffs will begin this week. According to the Wall Street Journal, an announcement could come as early as Wednesday, and it could impact thousands of workers.

Twitter is delaying the rollout of its paid subscription plan until after the midterm elections.
It was supposed to launch today, but it’s been pushed back to Wednesday. The blue check mark given to verified Twitter accounts will soon be available to any twitter blue user for $7.99 per month.

Apple is reportedly making moves to simplify commands for Siri. Users will no longer have to say  “Hey, Siri,” and could simply say “Siri” instead. Bloomberg reports that Apple has been working on the change for several months, and hopes to roll it soon.
