Twitter's Bengaluru operations was its second development centre after one in the US. The company said India was one of its "fastest-growing markets" and it remained committed to it as a "strategic market for users, partners and advertisers".

The layoffs will impact less than 20 employees at the development center. The employees who will be effected are part of ZipDial, the mobile communications startup had acquired by Twitter for around $35 million (around Rs 235 crore) last year.
