Twitter’s Asia headquarters in Singapore have instructed all employees to empty out their desks, vacate the premises, and work from home as Elon Musk continues to cut back expenses around the globe according to reports.
Twitter staff were informed via email on Wednesday that they had until 5 p.m. to leave the CapitaGreen building and resume their duties remotely from Thursday, one of the people said, asking not to be named discussing private information. Singapore-based staffers have now been reassigned as remote workers in Twitter’s internal system until further notice, the person added.
There has been reports on Twitter claiming that landlords had “walked employees out of the building.
” Other offices are set to close for the same reason, according to Business Insider’s sources, with around a dozen Twitter workspaces in total either closing or being in the process of closing.
The closures are reportedly part of Elon Musk’s uncompromising cost cutting at Twitter, which has already seen thousands of workers laid off.
The office closures will reportedly see a few hundred more staff dropped from the company’s payroll.
