Twitter employees are going through a tough time indeed. Elon Musk warned employees of hardcore work culture through an email last month and it looks like the Twitter boss is living up to his words already. Some of the recently leaked photos of the Twitter HQ showed some office spaces turned into bedrooms for employees to work round the clock. Musk now says that he is also working 24*7 and sleeping on a couch in the Twitter library.

Responding to a tweet from Twitter Takeover News account, the billionaire said that he is sleeping on a couch in the Twitter library. "I slept on a couch in the Twitter library and I don't ever wear slippers," his tweet response reads.

Recently, Musk said that he works for 120 hours a week. "My workload went up from about 70 to 80 hours a week to probably 120. Go to sleep, I wake up, work, go to sleep, work, do that seven days a week," he said during the annual Ron Baron Conference last month. The billionaire owns 5 companies in total, including Tesla, Nueralink, SpaceX, The Boring Company, and now Twitter. It seems he is currently devoting all his time to the newly acquired Twitter.

Since the acquisition, Musk has fired thousands of employees, including the former CEO Parag Agrawal and lead head Vijaya Gadde and many other top executives. The company, along with the remaining employees, is working towards successfully building Twitter 2.0. As a part of the restricting process, Musk expects all remaining Twitter employees to work round the clock and has setup bedrooms across Twitter offices.

Pictures of bedrooms in Twitter HQ have been making rounds on the internet for the last couple of hours. Going by the photos, it looks like the Twitter employees are giving all kinds of facilities in the room and it looks nothing less than a hotel room. The rooms are seen to include air purifier, bed, sofas and a lot of facilities.

San Francisco has received a complaint and is said to be investigating the matter. It is said that action can be taken against Musk for illegally converting office spaces into bedrooms. "We investigate all complaints. We need to make sure the building is used as intended. These codes make sure people are using spaces safely. Everyone in San Francisco deserves a safe place to live, work, play and sleep and no one is above the law," Patrick Hannan, a spokesman for the Department of Building Inspection, investigating the matter, said.
