Chief Twit of Twitter, Elon Musk, has, on Wednesday, announced the end of remote working at Twitter, ordering every staff member to return to the physical office.
Musk, who took over Twitter on October 27, sent an email to his employees for the first time on Wednesday, according to Bloomberg, which reviewed the email.
The billionaire wrote in the email that employees would no longer be permitted to work remotely. Twitter expected staff to be in the office for at least 40 hours a week, unless Musk gave approval for them to work elsewhere, according to the email.
Elon Musk said, Twitter usage has reached an all-time high.
Musk told workers in the email that Twitter was preparing them for “difficult times ahead.”
The Tesla and SpaceX CEO also wrote in the email that there was “no way to sugarcoat the message” about the current economic climate and what the impact of this would be on Twitter which depends on advertising.
Days after Musk finalised his deal with Twitter, employees noticed that the company’s “days of rest,” implemented by Twitter cofounder Jack Dorsey, had been removed from their calendars.
While Dorsey encouraged staff to avoid burnout, Musk’s other companies such as SpaceX and Tesla are known to work long hours.
The change in pace at Twitter has already been shown after a photo was posted on the social media platform, showing a manager sleeping on the floor at the company’s San Francisco headquarters last week.
