Twitter employees in Singapore were allegedly kicked out of their Singapore office due to the rental not being paid, according to Casey Newton of the New York Times.
Newton said in a Tweet that he was told Twitter employees were walked out of their Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore by the landlords because of the non-payment of rent.
The Business Times reported that staff were told that they had until 5pm to leave the building and resume their work remotely.
Staff in Singapore have been reassigned as remote workers, until further notice.
Here is what he said
I'm told Twitter employees were just walked out of its Singapore office — its Asia-Pacific headquarters — over nonpayment of rent. Landlords walked employees out of the building— Casey Newton (@CaseyNewton) January 11, 2023
Twitter has been going through a number of problems in recent months, it was sued just last week for non-payment of rent for their San Francisco office.
Billionaire CEO Elon Musk, who bought the company for US$44 billion last month, is facing increasing pressure and has fired employees, banned journalists, removed Twitter Blue in its repeated attempts to rebrand the social media website, and now owing rental money.
