Talk about burning the midnight oil. After a report by Forbes that Twitter has set up bedrooms for employees at its office headquarters in San Francisco, the BBC reported it has obtained pictures of the room conversions.
Since Elon Musk’s tenure as Chief Twit began in late October, the shakeup at Twitter has entailed a firing frenzy of around half of the 7,500-person workforce. Those remaining employees and contractors are said to be pulling long hours so that office rooms have been converted into bedrooms.
Musk apparently sleeps over at Twitter HQ and has installed a wardrobe in his conference-room-turned-hotel-room, tweeted James Clayton, the BBC’s North America tech reporter, late on Wednesday.
Sofas have been turned into beds and a washing machine has been fitted for staff to wash clothes.
Meanwhile, the San Francisco building inspections department are launching an investigation into the conversion as the building is for commercial use.
“We need to make sure the building is being used as intended,” a representative of the department told KQED News, San Francisco’s public radio station.
Twitter did not reply to a request for comment.
