Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s push to cut the social media company’s spending has reached the Lion City.
Twitter staff in Singapore have been reassigned as remote workers, and asked to work from home until further notice. An anoynomous insider told local media that staff were given just a few hours to leave the office at the CapitaGreen building in Singapore’s central busines district, via a town hall email on January 12.
A spokesperson from CapitaLand, owner of the CapitaGreen building, said that Twitter remains its tenant.
Singapore serves as Twitter’s Asia-Pacific headquarters. Earlier in January, Twitter let go of Nuz Azhar Bin Ayob, head of site integrity for the region.
