Twitter, denounced by her San Francisco landlord

During the last few weeks there has been talk of Elon Musk’s controversial decisions at the helm of Twitter. From the most notorious, such as the dismissal of a huge part of its workforce, to other smaller but significant ones, such as the elimination of a large part of the comforts that workers enjoyed in the company’s offices or, as we told you Yesterday, the auction of furniture and belongings from their offices to try to scratch a few tens of thousands of dollars, an amount that may seem a lot to ordinary mortals, but for Twitter accounts it is like a handful of coins from one and two cents that we have collecting dust in an ashtray at home.

One of the “brilliant” measures taken by Elon Musk has been stop paying office rent to owners, something that already posed a problem a few weeks ago, forcing the employees of the social network’s headquarters in San Francisco to have to telework for several days. According to reports at the time, it seemed that the situation had been resolved, since the employees were able to return to the office to carry out their usual tasks, but from what we now know, it is possible that this was only a mirage.

As we can read in Business Insider, The owner of the property in which the offices of the social network are located has denounced Twitter for not paying the rent. The building, located at 1355 Market Street, represents a rent of 3.2 million dollars a month and, according to said information, the company that owns it has sued the technology company for non-payment of rents for December and January , for a total of 6.4 million dollars.

It is not the first Twitter problem with rentals since the arrival of Elon Musk. Earlier this month the owner of the Hartford Twitter Building at 650 California Street sued the company for $136,260 for the same reason, non-payment of rent. Adding this to the auction we were talking about yesterday has a terribly harmful effect on the image of Twitter, which acts as a repellent for advertisers, whose economic dependence is critical to clean up the accounts. It is of little or no use to reduce operating costs if, along the way, the fundamental elements are eliminated to be able to continue operating normally and, therefore, generating income.
