Elon Musk, the platform's new owner, informed Twitter staff in his first email that "difficult days are ahead." After firing 50% of the staff, Musk's first significant move was to outlaw telecommuting unless he personally approved a request.
"There's no way I can gild the pill", Musk wrote in reference to the financial outlook and how it will impact an ad-dependent company like Twitter.
Musk continued by saying that he anticipates having his staff in the office for at least 40 hours per week.
Before being bought by the richest man in the world, Twitter had a consistent "work from anywhere" policy. Musk declared he was against telecommuting and would only make exceptions on a case-by-case basis in one of his first meetings with staff.
In addition, he did away with the "rest days" that had been mandated for workers to take once a month since the pandemic.
