Richest man in the world, Elon Musk, has converted conference rooms at Twitter HQ to hotel rooms for workers
After images of Twitter office space being converted into beds appeared, authorities in San Francisco, USA, are apparently investigating a possible breach of the building code.
A photo of Twitter’s corporate headquarters that was sent to the San Francisco housing authorities depicts a room with a double bed, as well as a closet and slippers.
New Twitter CEO Elon Musk has reportedly been residing at the offices since he purchased the company, according to an ex-employee who filed a police report.
Musk informed the company’s workforce via email last month that they would need to put in “long hours at great intensity.”
A passing mark will only be given for excellent accomplishment, he stated.
The San Francisco Department of Building Inspection announced it is looking into possible violations on Wednesday night, December 7.
Musk said that the city was criticizing businesses for giving beds to “weary personnel.”
Musk stated that he would work and sleep in the office “until the org is repaired” in a since-deleted tweet.
Musk said on Twitter in response to a journalist that the city should prioritize safeguarding kids from the effects of opiate drug abuse.
The bedrooms, which were allegedly converted from conference rooms, are also said to be used to house employees from other Musk-owned companies, including Tesla, who have been brought in to work at Twitter and “some of whom go to Twitter for work meetings.”
On Wednesday, California state legislator Scott Wiener said that the Twitter employee was now forcing his employees to sleep.
He obviously doesn’t care much about people, I think.
He has no regard for those who work for him.
We must ensure that the facility is being used as planned, a department of building inspection officer stated.
