Snap confirms reports of up to 24 redundancies in a bid to 'scale internally'

The memo - sent by Snap's chief lawyer and general counsel Michael O'Sullivan - states that employees caught leaking information will be fired and could face jail time.

Snap has since confirmed these layoffs, which largely affect those on the content teams in the NY and London offices.

"The journey is long, the work is hard, but we have and we will consistently, systematically, out-innovate our competitors with substantially few resources and in far less time", Spiegel wrote to the employees.

The memo, which surfaced online, details Spiegel's message on the importance of building an organization that scales internally when it comes to the business. You can face personal financial liability even if you yourself did not benefit from the leaked information.

But Snap has suffered an uptick in leaks in recent months, including its unannounced "Stories Everywhere" initiative and a recent round of layoffs across multiple teams - both of which were first reported by Cheddar. "The government can even put you in jail". Snap, reached for comment, did not respond on the record.

Snapchat is still a platform used mainly for messaging, despite the company's release of new features and efforts to encourage subscribers to use other parts of the app, Business Insider said, citing Snap data reviewed by The Daily Beast. In August 2016, Facebook copied Snap's signature product, user uploads that self-destruct after 24 hours, with the Instagram Stories feature.
