Elon Musk has turned some office space in Twitter's San Francisco headquarters into bedrooms and is reportedly having one made for himself as well.
That has attracted the attention of the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection, which told Insider it was investigating the reports.
Musk was not impressed, tweeting on Wednesday: "So city of SF attacks companies providing beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. Where are your priorities URL!?"
His decision to have some employees sleep at the office comes after one worker tweeted a picture of his boss in a sleeping bag and mask on Twitter's office floor on November 2, shortly after Musk took control.
In an email sent to staff on Wednesday, Musk told employees they must start coming into the company's headquarters, advising them that other Bay Area offices would not be used "for now."
Insider obtained a copy of the email via a Twitter employee who wanted to remain anonymous but whose identity has been verified by Insider.
Take a look inside the office space that's been turned into bedrooms.
The Boring Company's chief executive slept at Twitter's headquarters with his partner and newborn baby, The Information reported.
Steve Davis spent the first few weeks after his baby was born sleeping in a makeshift bedroom in the San Francisco office, along with his partner.
Davis has spent the past two months working for Twitter after Elon Musk sought his help. He was among the first few to sleep overnight at the office, according to The Information, which cites former Twitter employees.
His partner, a real estate asset manager, sat in on meetings while nursing their newborn to discuss Twitter's real estate situation, the report says.
Davis joined SpaceX in 2003 and by 2019 he was president of The Boring Company. He used to own a bar called "Thomas Foolery" as well as a yogurt store that he later sold for $1.
The news comes after a Twitter employee tweeted a photo of his manager asleep on the office floor with an eye mask, cushion and sleeping bag last month. The manager, Esther Crawford, responded in a tweet and said: "When your team is pushing round the clock to make deadlines sometimes you #SleepWhereYouWork."
Musk told staff in an email in the same month that they would be required to work "long hours at high intensity" and be "extremely hardcore" – or quit.
Forbes revealed earlier this month that the "Chief Twit" had converted some space in the San Francisco office into bedrooms. The bedrooms were furnished with TV screens, chairs, desk and a lamp, photos of the converted conference rooms show. One even has a wardrobe, air purifier and a washing machine.
Soon afterwards the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection said it was investigating the building's use after a complaint was made.
Musk hit out at London Breed, the mayor of San Francisco, in a tweet: "So city of SF attacks companies providing beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. Where are your priorities URL!?"
Twitter and Davis did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Insider.
