Last month, Musk tweeted that staff lunches at Twitter HQ were costing more than $400 per meal. He said, “Twitter spends $13M/year on food service for SF HQ. Badge in records show peak occupancy was 25 per cent, average occupancy below 10 per cent. There are more people preparing breakfast than eating breakfast. They don’t even bother serving dinner, because there is no one in the building.”


This comes after it was reported that local authorities are set to launch a probe into Musk’s move to convert some rooms at Twitter headquarters into small bedrooms. Local TV KQED  had quoted a San Francisco Department of Building Inspection’s official saying that they were launching an investigation into “reports Twitter has converted several office rooms at its headquarters into sleeping quarters for employees.”

It was reported that Musk has converted rooms at Twitter headquarters in San Francisco into small bedrooms, featuring unmade mattresses, drab curtains, and giant work monitors. The report said that the bedrooms have “bright orange carpeting, a wooden bedside table and what appears to be a queen bed, replete with a table lamp and two office armchairs just begging for convivial workplace collaboration.”
