They were made for those who agreed to the “hardcore” mode of work, one source suggested.
In early December 2022 employees who returned to Twitter’s San Francisco office found equipped bunks there, said Forbes, which reviewed photos of the office. One such room had a structure like a large bed, a nightstand with a lamp and office chairs.
- According to one of the sources, no one explained the innovations to the employees. He suggested that the beds were needed for those who agreed to “hardcore” work so that they could sleep in the office.
- The new owner of the social network, Ilon Musk, suggested that employees agree to “hardcore” Twitter and “work long hours with high intensity” or quit, in mid-November, the media wrote. Exactly how many people left after that is unknown.
- How many such “sleepers” in the office is unclear, Forbes wrote. But the source of the newspaper suggested that there could be from four to eight on the floor, and noted that they look comfortable. Another interlocutor added that several rooms are located on an almost empty floor. According to him, such a move is logical, because many employees are already working late. Twitter’s CEO did not respond to a request for comment.
Elon Musk did not comment on the situation. Earlier, he suggested introducing Twitter subscription fees to turn the social network into a SaaS business. Read more about SaaS marketing.
