Twitter orders workers at Asia HQ to clear desks, WFH

Employees at Twitter Inc.’s Singapore office have been ordered to clear their desks and vacate the premises, people familiar with the situation said, as Elon Musk continues to cut spending around the world.

Twitter employees were emailed Wednesday that they had until 5 p.m. to leave the CapitaGreen building and resume their duties remotely starting Thursday, one of the people said, asking not to be named to discuss private information. The Singapore-based staff have now been reassigned as remote workers in Twitter’s internal system until further notice, the person added.

Singapore serves as Twitter’s Asia-Pacific headquarters, a region hit hard by deep and abrupt job cuts when new owner Musk took over the San Francisco-based company. The company also fired Nur Azhar Bin Ayob this month, who had been head of site integrity for the region and a relatively new hire.

Twitter officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment. A spokesman for CapitaLand, the owner of its Singapore offices, said Twitter remains a tenant at CapitaGreen, without elaborating.

Musk’s cost-cutting efforts included non-payment of rent for its global headquarters, and the company was sued by the landlord of its San Francisco offices last month over the matter. Platformer’s Casey Newton first tweeted about the eviction of the Singapore office, adding that the reason was non-payment of rent for the facility.
