Elon Musk encourages Twitter engineers to fly out for in-person meetings.

November 18 (Reuters) – According to emails reviewed by Reuters, Elon Musk on Friday asked the rest of Twitter’s staff writing software code to report to the 10th floor of his San Francisco office by early afternoon. I would appreciate it if you could fly to SF and come in person,” he added, staying at company headquarters until midnight and returning Saturday morning. He said the engineers were due to report at 2pm on Friday. It is believed that Musk’s decision to leave the beleaguered social media company after Thursday’s deadline for employees to sign “high-intensity long hours” has already cut its headcount by more than half to about 3,700 due to layoffs and other exits. Twitter told employees on Thursday that it would close offices and block access to badges through Monday, according to two sources. Reuters could not immediately confirm if the headquarters would reopen. Afternoon began blocking access to company systems for some of its employees who did not accept Musk’s offer. To cut costs, it closed one of Twitter’s three major US data centers at its SMF1 facility near Sacramento.” “We are also changing our Twitter policy so that remote work is no longer allowed unless there are specific exceptions,” he said. Twitter reinstated some controversial accounts that had been banned or suspended, including satire website Babylon Bee and comedian Kathy Griffin, adding that a decision to reinstate former US President Donald Trump’s account had not yet been made. When a Twitter user asked Musk to reinstate conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Musk bluntly replied “no.” The majority voted yes. “Vox Populi, Vox Dei,” Musk tweeted in Latin, meaning “the voice of the people is the voice of God.” “Insufficient or inadequate information to support maintaining ratings,” Musk wrote in one of the emails that “there will be a short technical interview to better understand the Twitter tech stack.” Musk said earlier this week that some Tesla engineers are evaluating Twitter’s engineering team, but that he is “volunteer” and “out of hours.” He tries to communicate by video with remote employees and cannot physically get to the company headquarters or a family emergency will be tolerated. ed.Musk wrote on Twitter late Thursday that “the best people will stay” and that he is not worried about resigning.
