The employees at Twitter Inc.’s Singapore office were instructed to clear their desks and leave the building as Elon Musk continues to cut costs globally.
One of the persons who spoke on condition of anonymity claimed that Twitter employees were advised via email on Wednesday that they had until 5 pm to vacate the CapitaGreen building and begin working remotely on Thursday.
In Twitter’s internal system, Singapore-based employees have now been reassigned as remote workers until further notice, the source continued. Twitter’s Asia-Pacific headquarters are located in Singapore, a country that was hard-hit by sudden and drastic employment losses after Elon Musk acquired the San Francisco-based company.
Nur Azhar Bin Ayob, who had been the region’s head of site integrity and had only recently been hired, was also fired by the company this month. Without going into any further detail, a representative for CapitaLand, which owns Twitter’s offices in Singapore, stated the company still resides at CapitaGreen.
Musk’s efforts to reduce costs have included not paying rent on its worldwide headquarters; as a result, the landlord of its San Francisco offices sued Musk last month. The Singapore office clearout was initially mentioned on Twitter by Casey Newton of Platformer, who added that the cause was nonpayment of facility rent.
