rate over the years. It was too fast, without giving good enough attention to our most important company priorities,

Lawson said on his part in the letter. I take responsibility for those decisions taken. Lawson said the affected

employees are in all areas of the company that can operate more efficiently and efficiently where customers

 can succeed best without human intervention. Twilio said it expects to spend between about $70 million
