TechCrunch: Anonymous app Whisper lays off 20% of staff to survive

TechCrunch: Anonymous app Whisper lays off 20% of staff to survive. “Startups are dying all over the place as last year’s investment cool-off leads many to run out of cash. But Whisper refuses to race into the graveyard like fellow anonymous social apps Secret and Yik Yak. A source told TechCrunch that Whisper experienced layoffs this week, and after requesting comment, the startup now confirms to us it’s let go of 20% of staff so it can become sustainable for the long run.”
