Since his acquisition of Twitter, Elon Musk has received immense criticism from the public for changes he has made to the social media platform and actions he has taken on people that violated new policies he put in place.

Now Musk is at war with the city of San Francisco and given his history it may cause the social media platform to move their headquarters elsewhere.

In his short time at Twitter, Musk and his team have spent many hours hard at work at the headquarters which has caused some to want to stay overnight to forgo the stresses of going home to rest.

Bloomberg reported that “Musk has converted several of Twitter’s extra conference rooms into makeshift bedrooms, complete with side tables and armchairs. In some photos, even the couches have been adorned with pillows, blankets and bedsheets. 

“Employees at Twitter – and those from Musk’s other companies like Tesla and SpaceX who have traveled to help Twitter out – are apparently working so hard and for such a long time that they need to sleep at the office,” the outlet continued.

Because of this San Francisco’s Department of Building Inspection launched an investigation into the matter as converting commercial offices into “residential spaces” requires certain applications and permits.

After learning about the investigation, Musk took to Twitter to flip the script on San Francisco’s Mayor London Breed.

“So city of SF attacks companies providing beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. Where are your priorities @LondonBreed!?” Musk tweeted alongside a story of a 10 year old who overdosed on fentanyl at a San Francisco playground.

In 2021 Musk moved the Tesla headquarters from the Silicon Valley to Austin, Texas as living prices in California were becoming an issue for employees, but this recent spat with the San Francisco government could lead to a similar departure from the state.

“His clash with city officials could be the beginning of the end of Twitter’s long history in San Francisco. Even though it’s the city where Twitter was invented and where the company has been headquartered since 2006, Musk has already shown little reverence for the way the company worked before he took over,” Bloomberg further noted.

It is unlikely the location of Twitter’s headquarters will move anytime soon, but if problems continue with the city of San Francisco, Musk may have no choice but to make a change.
