Twitter Temporarily Closes Offices, Suspends Employees’ Access

On Thursday, Twitter reportedly temporarily closed its office buildings and suspended employees’ access badges until Monday, November 21, as Twitter CEO Elon Musk and his team evaluate the situation.

“Twitter just alerted employees that effective immediately, all office buildings are temporarily closed and badge access is suspended,” Platformer’s Zoë Schiffer announced on Twitter. “No details given as to why.”

“We’re hearing this is because Elon Musk and his team are terrified employees are going to sabotage the company,” she continued. “Also, they’re still trying to figure out which Twitter workers they need to cut access for.”

Schiffer added that employees have been told to “Please continue to comply with company policy by refraining from discussing confidential company information on social media, with the press or elsewhere.”

The news comes shortly after Musk fired about half of Twitter’s 7500 employees.

In an email sent to the 3700 fired employees, Musk wrote, “Twitter is conducting a workforce reduction to help improve the health of the company.”

“These decisions are never easy and it is with regret that we write to inform you that your role at Twitter has been impacted,” the email continued. “Today is your last working day at the company, however, you will remain employed by Twitter and will receive compensation and benefits through your separation date of February 2, 2023.”

“During this time, you will be on a Non-Working Notice period and your access to Twitter systems will be deactivated. While you are not expected to work during the Non-Working Notice period, you are still required to comply with all company policies, including the Employee Playbook and Code of Conduct,” the email said. “Within a week, you will receive details of your severance offer, financial resources extending beyond your Non-Working Notice period. At that time you will also receive a Separation Agreement and Release of Claims and other offboarding information, such as how to return your Twitter materials (computer, badge, etc.).”

The email concluded, “We remain grateful for all that you have done for Twitter throughout your tenure and wish you only the best in your next chapter.”
