Twitter Asks Some Fired Workers to Return, Delays Change to Badges

Twitter Inc. has implemented another freeze on software code, meaning that new products and features can’t be shipped unless they are critical, according to three people familiar with the plans. 

Twitter implemented a similar freeze when new owner Elon Musk took over in late October, which was explained as a way to keep employees from accidentally or intentionally altering the social media site without permission.
