According to individuals familiar with the matter, Elon Musk continues to cut costs globally. Workers at Twitter Inc.’s Singapore office were instructed to pack up their gear and leave.
One of the individuals stated, asking not to be named discussing private data, that Twitter employees were notified via email Wednesday that they had until 5 p.m. to depart the CapitaGreen building and work from Thursday. Until further notice, the person said that Singapore-based workers are relocated as remote workers in Twitter’s internal system.
Twitter’s Asia-Pacific headquarters are located in Singapore. The new owner, the chief twit Musk, took over the San Francisco-based firm last year. Ever since, the region has been hit hard by deep and sudden job cuts. Nur Azhar Bin Ayob was also fired by the firm this month. He was a relatively recent hire who previously oversaw site integrity for the area.

The firm’s representatives didn’t respond to a comment request immediately. It is still a tenant at CapitaGreen, according to a spokesperson for CapitaLand, the company that owns its Singapore offices.
Last month, the property owner of Musk’s San Francisco offices sued the company for failing to pay rent on its global headquarters. It was one of Musk’s cost-cutting measures. Casey Newton of Platformer first reported the Singapore office clearance, who stated that the facility’s failure to pay rent was the motivation.
Twitter Inc. had filed for a previous year’s IPO. The company has fired about 90% of its workers in India, a major reduction by new owner Musk as part of a broad engineering and product workforce shortage in the future potential market. About a dozen people remained after the layoffs, impacting about 200 individuals in India. According to one of the people, around 70% of the employees eliminated in India worked on a worldwide mandate and were from the product and engineering teams. According to the individuals, positions within departments such as marketing, public policy, and corporate communications have also been cut.
