Musk quoted- ‘Twitter spends $13 million yearly on food service at its San Francisco headquarters.”
Two weeks after Elon Musk completed his acquisition of Twitter, the controversy surrounding the company’s dramatic transformation continues to make headlines. On Sunday, Elon Musk argued over employee lunches with Tracy Hawkins, the company’s former vice president of business transformation. Notably, Hawkins ran a food show on Twitter until a week ago. In his tweet, he said Twitter spends between $20 and $25 per person per day, allowing employees to work between lunches and meetings. Hawkins said Elon Musk’s previous claims that few people came to his office and that the estimated cost of each lunch in the past 12 months was more than $400 were false.
He said: “This is a lie. It allowed employees to work during lunch and meetings, with office attendance rates between 20% and 50%.”
In response to his tweet, Musk said Twitter spends $13 million yearly on food service at its San Francisco headquarters. Musk denied the former employee’s allegations, saying, “False. Twitter spends $13 million annually on food service in the SF hub. Records show peak occupancy at 25% and average less than 10%.” More people prepare breakfast than them. Eat it. “There’s nobody in the building, so they don’t even bother serving dinner.”
Elon Musk also noted that people prepare it more than they eat breakfast. He added: The obtained data shows that the majority of residents are 25 percent, while the average number of residents is less than 10 percent.
The whole story is about a New York Times article that says Tesla bosses canceled free lunches for Twitter employees.
Musk also responded to @NicheGamer before his battle with Hawkins. @NicheGamer shared a tweet by Andrew Wortman stating that Elon Musk plans to lay off three-quarters of his workforce and lay off the rest. Wortman complained that Twitter started charging for lunch instead of giving it away for free. In response to Wortman, @NicheGamer tweeted, “Maybe I should learn to cook!”
