Elon Musk Addresses Reports of Twitter Being Under Investigation for Converting Office Space Into Bedrooms

Elon Musk has addressed reports of Twitter having turned office space into sleeping quarters, namely taking issue with word that authorities in San Francisco may be investigating such developments.

According to a Forbes report on Monday, employees were met this week with what the publication’s sources billed as “modest bedrooms featuring unmade mattresses, drab curtains and giant conference-room telepresence monitors.” The report noted this setup marked a noticeable improvement in comparison to the sleeping bag-esque environment previously documented on social media, perhaps most prominently in the widely shared tweet below from last month.

More recently, regional Bay Area outlet KQED reported that city building inspector officials were launching an investigation, as did the Washington Post. The latter cited a Department of Building Inspection spokesperson as stating the intention of such an inquiry is to ensure a space is being “used as intended,” adding that “no one is above the law.”

In a response shared to Twitter, which has made headlines in recent months for no longer enforcing a COVID-19 misinformation policy and for firing a slew of workers, Musk framed the situation as “providing beds for tired employees” before very Republicanishly trying to steer the conversation toward fentanyl. He also tagged San Francisco Mayor London Breed in the post.

Complex has reached out to reps for San Francisco’s Department of Building Inspection for additional comment. This story may be updated. As for reaching out to Twitter, there’s seemingly no point in doing that anymore.

Meanwhile, Musk’s brain-computer interface company Neuralink has been reported to be facing a federal investigation over alleged Animal Welfare Act violations.
