Marketers required to LinkedIn and Buy Twitter Verification to voice their concerns.
Why This Matters Advertisers can not handle or enhance their
proper access to Google Advertisements. Much more, Google Ads are still serving to users, but marketers can’t see or react to real-time performance. When marketing dollars are at stake, this is a huge issue for companies of any size. If you’re used to weekly reporting, that’s another task you won’t be able to do up until the
Google Ads issue is resolved. This blackout is troublesome for Google after their layoff announcement of 12,000 employees on Friday.

Google Ads is still down for lots of users as of Monday afternoon. After the Friday statement of 12,000 Googlers, concerns have arisen if these layoffs have impacted the innovation and staffing that handles these platforms.
This is an establishing story and will update as Google offers more details.
