Squatter Musk Reportedly No Longer Paying Rent At Twitter



Squatter’s Rights

Elon, the newly appointed CEO of Twitter, has learned that when you buy a significant social media platform and either dismiss or force out the majority of the staff as you do, there are many expenses that come due. Elon officially acquired the microblogging service for a cool $44 bιllιon in October.

His response? Simply, don’t pay them.

According to sources familiar with the situation, Musk has been refusing to pay the rent for Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters for a number of weeks now as a cost-cutting measure, according to the New York Times. Musk is reportedly expecting a number of expensive lawsuits regarding his unconventional takeover of the platform.

Ignore! Ignore!

In other news, sources for the New York Times claim that Elon Musk has not paid a bill totaling $197,725 for private charter flights and has even contemplated not paying former employees the severance they were assured they would receive.

Although, considering that this most recent report comes on the heels of recent allegations that Musk has stiffed several of Twitter’s outside vendors, fired Twitter’s janitorial staff without ceremony and without warning, and even failed to pay Twitter’s own international employees on time, none of these insights should come as much of a suгргιse.

Legal Chaos

It is important to point out that these said cost-cutting measures are allegedly being implemented against the backdrop of a chaotic internal legal drama.

According to recent reports, Elon Musk has dismissed Alex Spiro, his personal lawyer. Spiro had followed Musk to Twitter once the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla moved there. According to the New York Times, Spiro kept saving James A. Baker’s job at Twitter despite the fact that Baker reviewed internal documents related to Twitter’s alleged suppression of the Hunter Bιden laptop scanԀ‌al. In the end, however, Baker was let go after Musk discovered that Baker had reviewed these documents. Baker had been Twitter’s former deputy general counsel.

As a result of Musk’s dissatisfaction with Spiro, the latter was also fired from his position at the company. In typical Elon fashion, he has apparently pulled approximately half a dozen lawyers from SpaceX to Twitter in an effort to make up for the losses. And in the midst of all of these legal maneuverings, insiders indicate that Musk has threatened legal action against current employees who “act in a manner that is adverse to the company’s interest.”

The Chief Twit stated in an email to staff that was acquired by Platformer that “if you obviously and knowingly break the NDA that you signed when joining Twitter, you accept liability to the full extent of the law and Twitter will promptly seek damages.”

Cool. Well. It would appear that business operations are proceeding as usual over at Twitter’s headquarters.

‘Unintelligible’: Elon Musk Locks Twitter Employees Out Office, Then Asks Them To Meet Him On The 10th Floor

What’s Going On Over There?

Worst Case Scenario

Elon Musk’s experiment with purchasing Twitter is reportedly not working as well as intended, with reports claiming that he has barred employees from the company’s office buildings.

The Twitter workforce was abruptly informed by email yesterday evening that they wouldn’t be permitted to enter their workplaces for the remainder of the week, according to Platformer’s Zo Schiffer.

Elon Musk and his crew are reportedly concerned that workers will damage the business, according to Schiffer. “Also, they’re still attempting to figure out which Twitter workers they need to block access for.”

Then, the bizarre story became even stranger today when Musk sent an email to the workers inviting them to a meeting on the 10th floor of Twitter’s headquarters, which, as you may recall, they had just been informed they were locked out of.


Overall, the sense of instability that has surrounded Twitter since Musk’s takeover late last month has grown to absurd levels.


You may recall that the announcement of the office shutdown came soon after Elon Musk gave his remaining employees an ultimatum, warning them that if they didn’t come into the office, they would be effectively resigning from the company.

Musk informed his new staff another apparent threat right before the news of the office closure: if they are not ready “to be incredibly hardcore” and work extended in-office hours, they can leave with three months’ severance.

Unsurprisingly, many Twitter employees have chosen the latter – a move that some described to CNN’s Darcy as a “mass exodus.”

Who could blame them in the face of all this confusion and contradiction?
