Twitter Doles Out Stock, Cash Bonuses To Retain Talent

With so many top executives leaving the company in the past few weeks, maybe bribing your remaining employees might actually be a good idea. Would you take cash and stocks to stay somewhere you didn't want to be?

Twitter has been offering cash bonuses to some employees, ranging from $50,000 to $200,000 as an incentive to keep them around for another six months to a year, the Journal reported on Wednesday. The company has also granted varying amounts of restricted stock depending on when the employees started working, intending to make up for the value lost since they joined the company, the newspaper reported, citing people familiar with the matter.
