Elon Musk is changing a lot of things at Twitter, after he became its new owner recently. Musk plans to charge for meals at Twitter, which he stated was previously free.
Elon Musk is making significant changes at Twitter. From laying off half of his employees to charging for the blue tick, Musk has made several changes at Twitter. It is now reported that Musk would charge for meals at Twitter, which he previously stated were provided free of charge. According to an ex-Twitter employee, Musk is lying.
According to Twitter’s new owner, the “estimated cost each meal provided in the previous 12 months is >$400,” which is around Rs 32,000.
Tracy Hawkins, an ex-Twitter employee who just quit because she didn’t want to work with Musk, claims the Twitter CEO is lying.
She explained, “This is a fabrication. I ran this program for a week before resigning since I didn’t want to work with @elonmusk.”
Musk rejected Hawkins’ accusations, stating they are “wrong” and that “Twitter spends $13M/year on food service for SF HQ.”
The Twitter CEO emphasized that delivering lunch costing more than $400 million in a year is “bizarre” because “virtually no one came to the office.” Hawkins refuted Musk’s assertions once more, saying, “For breakfast and lunch, we paid $20-$25 per person every day.” This allowed staff to work through lunch and meetings.”
Hawkins further stated that “attendance in the offices ranged from 20 to 50 percent.” Musk said, “badge in data show peak occupancy was 25%, average occupancy was less than 10%.”
Musk made work from home essential for Twitter staff last week, mirroring his work rituals at Tesla and SpaceX. Hawkins isn’t the only former Twitter employee who has spoken out against Musk. Some of Twitter’s senior executives just resigned.
According to reports, Elon Musk told Twitter staff in his first email about how the US economic situation will affect the firm. He also requested Twitter staff to work 40 hours per week and declared the permanent termination of the remote work policy, which Jack Dorsey instituted during the COVID period.
Musk said in an email, “The path ahead is tough and will need significant labor to achieve.”
