Big shake-up at Google! Word is, they’re planning to trim down their crew by a whopping 30,000 employees. 😲 Why, you ask? Well, it looks like AI’s the new boss in town, especially in the ad sales department.

Google’s been dabbling in AI-driven ads, which might sound cool (who doesn’t want a robot selling them stuff?), but it’s not all sunshine and lollipops for the workforce. Google’s aiming to replace some roles with AI tech. πŸ‘€

Tech heavyweights such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Meta have been handing out global pink slips, but 𝕏 (formerly Twitter) has taken the lead, cutting a whopping 80% of its staff – a scale unmatched in the tech world. πŸŒβœ‚οΈ

But back to Google – CEO Sundar Pichai‘s got a tough gig, balancing company morale while steering the Google ship through AI waters. He’s calling it a “difficult but necessary” move. πŸ”„πŸ”»

So, what’s next for Google’s army of ad sellers? Will AI be the genie in the bottle, or are we looking at a future where layoffs are the new norm in tech town? πŸ§žβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’Ό

Stay tuned, ’cause this Google saga is far from over! πŸš’πŸ‘€
