(Pocket-lint) – Twitter CEO and owner Elon Musk has reportedly filled the company’s San Francisco offices with beds to allow his overworked employees to sleep in.
Since the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk for 44 billion dollars, revelations follow one another almost daily. The social network lost half of its staff after a wave of layoffs, and Musk had to rehire some and then start recruiting to replace others. He told employees they would have to work long hours to revamp Twitter in his image, and now he’s given them a place to sleep when they’re done.
According to a Forbes report, employees who returned to the office after the weekend found rooms full of beds “with unmade mattresses, drab curtains and giant conference room telepresence screens.” If that sounds spooky, it’s still better than the sleeping bags some employees would have used after working late.
A source told Forbes that while no official statement has been made by Twitter, they assume the beds are up for those who choose to spend the night in the office under the new ‘hardcore’ approach. of Musk to rebuild the social network.
“People are already working late at night, so that makes sense to some extent,” a source reportedly told Forbes. The report says a photo was provided showing “bright orange carpeting, a wooden bedside table and what appears to be a large bed, complete with a table lamp and two desk chairs just begging to be be used for friendly collaboration in the workplace”.
It looks comfortable.
