Twitter sued for not paying rent of San Francisco office


Elon Musk has been searching for ways to turn Twitter’s fortune after his $44 billion deal to acquire the social media platform. He fired most of the staff and a report in the New York Times claimed that Twitter stopped paying rent of the company’s San Francisco office.
In the latest development, reports suggest that the microblogging platform has been sued for allegedly failing to pay the rent for the Twitter headquarters. Citing the court filings, CBS News reports that Twitter has not paid rent of $136,260 (approximately Rs 1.12 crore) and is being sued by the landlord of the Hartford Building – Columbia Reit – 650 California LLC. The office is on the 30th floor of the building.

It was reported that Musk had been trying to renegotiate the terms of the building’s lease. The report also mentioned that the company received multiple complaints from Shorenstein, the real estate firm which owns Twitter’s San Francisco building.
Twitter’s massive revenue drop
Since his takeover, several advertisers have stopped advertising on the platform fearing that their ads may flash at inappropriate places. This led Twitter to suffer a “massive drop in revenue” in the days following his $44 billion acquisition of the company.
Twitter office is employees’ ‘new home’
Twitter’s San Francisco office was recently in the news because some of its conference rooms were converted into bedrooms for employees to sleep there. BBC cited some former employees of Twitter as saying that Musk has been staying and regularly sleeping at the Twitter headquarters in San Francisco since he bought the firm.
Bloomberg reported that these bedrooms are also said to accommodate staff from Tesla and other Musk-owned businesses.

Probe into ‘bedrooms’
Soon after the ‘bedroom’ news broke, California state senator Scott Wiener told the BBC that Musk “is now making them [workers] sleep at Twitter. It’s clear that he doesn’t really care about people. He doesn’t care about the people who work for him.” San Francisco’s Department of Building Inspection also said that it was investigating potential violations following a complaint.
