Elon Musk is implementing the most drastic changes to Twitter. While the social media platform is a much different place than it once was, so are the Twitter offices. As Musk continues to reduce expenses and look for ways to make money, Twitter is closing or getting kicked out of many international offices.
As revealed by two people linked to the company and messages seen by Business Insider, at least twelve international offices have already closed or are about to do so. Many more in the United States are anticipated to do the same in the upcoming weeks as well. Along with a large number of its employees who have already been let go, fired, or decided to leave since Musk took over the business less than two months ago, the shutdowns are also anticipated to result in the loss of a few hundred more jobs for Twitter staff members.
Offices in Mexico, Africa, Hong Kong, the Philippines, and the Philippines are among those that will be shut down, according to the sources familiar. The sources added, on condition of anonymity, that offices in Australia, Korea, most of Europe, and India are also shut down or will be in the upcoming weeks. According to those familiar, Twitter’s regional headquarters in Singapore is also closing down due to unpaid rent, as Platformer reporter Casey Newton also noted on Twitter.
Twitter initially had offices in more than twenty different countries across the world. The company is currently considering limiting offices to a small number, similar to the major U.S. cities of San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, as well as internationally in London, Tokyo, and Dublin.
Musk has resorted to constant cost-cutting and layoffs as a result of his company’s worsening financial situation and his big plans for subscription revenue that have not materialized. It remains to be seen what Elon Musk will do next in the name of cost-cutting. Thirsty will surely keep you updated.
