In modern corporate America, people usually ARE "laid off" when they're fired. That's how it works, unless that actual person it not wanted, so that companies can avoid paying unemployment for the person.

As to WHY, aside from AOL wanting to spread the layoffs around to avoid crippling any single department (as though some parts of AOL/TW could be MORE crippled and inefficiant), I couldn't say why her. Probably also related to when she was hired or some such reason.

"Oh, you were hired on a tusday with an odd number in the date, we're going to have to let you go. Security will escort you from here, and they'll remove your letter opener and stapler before you clean out your desk."
