Age Discrimination is No Laughing Matter, ask Twitter

TWITTER-LOGO1-AZ1

 Former Twitter employee alleges age discrimination in lawsuit

The lawsuit was filed by former Twitter employee Peter Taylor, alleges he was fired last year with no warning and a month after the then-57-year-old underwent surgery to remove kidney stones.

The suit says Taylor saved Twitter millions of dollars during its data center expansion and met all performance review standards before he was fired and replaced by workers in their 20s and 30s.

Taylor, who worked as Twitter’s manager of data center deployment, said in the suit that his supervisor made critical remarks about his age during his termination.
