(NewsGlobal.com)- In his first email to employees as CEO, Elon Musk warned the company to brace itself for “disturbing times ahead” and announced the end of remote working for Twitter employees.
According to the late-night email, there was “no way to sugarcoat” the economic prognosis.
He reportedly stated that a company like Twitter, which depends on advertising, will be impacted by the negative forecast.
In the email, he also declared that he was outlawing working from home and expected employees to spend at least 40 hours per week at the office.
The hours are based on guidelines that he, as the new CEO of Twitter, has approved.
“The path ahead is difficult, and success will require a lot of work,” he said.
The rules outlined in the email from yesterday night are now in effect.
Just days after letting go of over half of the company’s 7,500 global employees, he is issuing his most recent warning to his new employees.
Musk removed “days of relaxation” from the calendars of Twitter employees.
This monthly day off for the entire workplace was implemented during the epidemic.
Since taking over as Twitter’s CEO about two weeks ago, Musk has implemented a variety of adjustments.
Musk has ended remote working for staff. He also pulled the plug on the new gray ‘Official’ badge because he believed it was ‘another way of creating a two-class system in the social media site’s favor.
The new verification process is an opt-in, paid subscription that offers a blue checkmark and access to select features. The move is part of CEO Elon Musk’s plans to create new revenue streams for the platform, which is currently almost entirely dependent on advertising – an income stream already shrinking because of the economic downturn.
Fears grew that it would be harder to apply Twitter policies and filter out misinformation as the US crept ever closer to the midterms on November 8, according to sources at the company who asked to remain anonymous.
Employees had limited access to tools for filtering out misinformation and civic integrity violations. More than 1,000 slurs were posted on Twitter during a ‘focused, short-term trolling campaign’ by the Trust team. It was the equivalent of 215 posts every five minutes at its peak and occurred when the Trust team had no access to enforce moderation policies.
