This morning, Yahoo announced it would fire 2,000 people. Those people are starting to find out, and they are saying their goodbyes.

Laid-off Yahoo Rachel Powers tweets: “Goodbye Yahoo! It’s been short but sweet. I have been laid off. I am 1 of 2,000 losing their jobs today.”

Posting the picture on the right, Zach Hanna tweets: “It was a fun 4 years; learned a lot and met many awesome people, but goodbye.”

It’s not all doom and gloom.

Rick Minerich tweets: “Any #machinelearning folks leaving #yahoo looking for a research job in manhattan? Please let me know!”
