Three other senior employees are leaving Twitter prior to the early acquisition of Elon Musk, CNBC confirmed Tuesday.

Ilya Brown, vice president of product management; Katrina Lane, vice president of Twitter services; and Max Schmeiser, head of data science, are all leaving the company.

The departures come after consumer chief Kayvon Beykpour and revenue product manager Bruce Falck claimed to be leaving the company. In a series of tweets, Beykpour said it wasn’t his decision to leave Twitter. The social media company also said it was suspending most of its hiring and cutting non-labor costs.

A Twitter spokesperson said the three will leave the company for new opportunities. Bloomberg first reported the releases.

Twitter accepted Musk’s offer to buy the company for $ 54.20 per share on April 25. Musk told banks in fundraising for the deal that he would cut executive and board salaries and push the company to cut other costs. Reuters previously reported.
