Twitter announced Tuesday that the social media company plans to lay off as many as 336 employees, or 8 percent of its staff, as part of an internal restructuring plan.

Jack Dorsey, the company's co-founder and new permanent CEO, is making other changes as well, including extending the 140-character maximum for tweets and introducing a new Twitter-curated live event feature called Moments.

The company also made news Monday when it suspended two major media accounts for posting videos and GIFs of sports events after professional and college leagues complained.
