  • Twitter no longer needs as many conference rooms after downsizing thousands of employees after Musk's $44 billion takeover.
  • San Francisco's Department of Building Inspections looked to conduct a site inspection on Twitter headquarters following a complaint about the bedrooms, a possible violation of the building code.
  • Before consummating his Twitter takeover, Musk shared the idea of turning Twitter's office building into a homeless shelter, saying that employees were not turning up due to its now-discontinued work-from-home policies. 
  • Musk expects employees to slog for long hours and even sleep at the office when necessary. 
  • Musk also asked many of his employees at Tesla Inc TSLA and the Boring Co to assist him at Twitter during the transition period. 
  • The rooms will likely cater to the above workers, some of whom travel to Twitter for work meetings.
