Twitter Orders Workers In Asia Headquarters To Clear Desks, WFH

1 min read


Workers at Twitter Inc.’s Singapore office were told to empty their desks and vacate the premises, said people familiar with the situation, as Elon Musk continues to pare costs around the globe.

Twitter staff were informed via email Wednesday that they had until 5 p.m. to exit the CapitaGreen building and resume their duties remotely from Thursday, one of the people said, asking not to be named concerning private information. The person added that Singapore-based staffers have now been reassigned as remote workers in Twitter’s internal system until additional notice.

Singapore operates as Twitter’s Asia-Pacific headquarters. A region drilled hard by deep and abrupt job cuts when new owner Musk took over the San Francisco-based firm. This month, the group also let go of Nur Azhar Bin Ayob, the head of site integrity for the region and a relatively current hire.

Representatives for Twitter didn’t directly respond to requests for comment. A spokesperson for CapitaLand, the owner of its Singapore offices, said Twitter stays a tenant at CapitaGreen without exaggerating.

Musk’s cost-cutting efforts have contained not paying rent on its global headquarters, and it was sued over that problem last month by the landlord of its San Francisco offices. Casey Newton of Platformer first tweeted about the Singapore office clearing out, adding that the reason was the failure to pay rent on the structure.
