Breaking News – Twitter closes offices until next week

Twitter closes offices until next week as the company has told employees that the company’s office buildings will be temporarily closed, effective immediately.

In a message seen on social media, workers were told that the offices would reopen on Monday 21 November. It did not give a reason for the move.

A source close to Twitter has suggested that Elon Musks’ dictatorial terms of leading the company has stirred up a mini-revolution within the company, with many senior engineers threatening to leave in their droves.

The announcement comes amid reports that large numbers of staff were quitting after new owner Elon Musk called on them to sign up for “long hours at high intensity” or leave.

The message went on to say: “Please continue to comply with company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere.”

This week Mr Musk told Twitter staff that they had to commit to working “long hours at high intensity” or else leave the company, according to reports.

In an email to staff, the firm’s new owner said workers should agree to the pledge if they wanted to stay, the Washington Post reported.

Those who did not sign up by Thursday would be given three months’ severance pay, Mr Musk said.

Earlier this month the company said that it was cutting around 50% of its workforce.
