Elon Musk, Twitter's current CEO, has converted some office space in the company's San Francisco headquarters into bedrooms, presumably for sick workers who are coping under his new hardcore work ethic.This has attracted the attention of not only social media followers, but also the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection, which opened an investigation into the company because the building is only registered as a commercial one.Now, amid all this, images of beds, futon couches, and sofas covered with sheets and pillows have surfaced online.James Clayton posted the pictures on Twitter, showing makeshift bedrooms with minimal furniture.The website also shared photos of inside Twitter of employees who have been converted into bedrooms.One photo depicted a room with a wardrobe, another showed several sofas turned into single beds.Mr Clayton shared a video of himself putting on a washing machine for his staff so they could dry their clothes.There are about four to eight bedrooms pods per floor, according to Mr Clayton.The rooms are decorated with unmade mattresses, drab curtains, and huge conference-room telepresence systems. In a statement released by Patrick Hannan, the department's communications director, said, We need to make sure the building is being used as intended.Following the announcement of the probe, Twitter chief London Breed reacted vehemently to it and accused the company of being unfairly accused of providing beds for aging employees.Mr Musk also included a clip from a recent story about a baby who was near death after reportedly accidentally inhaling fentanyl at a San Francisco playground.Noteworthy, since the tech billionaire took over Twitter last month, he's fired about 50% of the team, scrapped a work-from-home policy, and instituted long hours.
