Along with mandating a return to the office, Elon Musk has announced that no one gets a free lunch at Twitter. Literally.
Twitter employees will now have to pay for their own meals at the company cafeteria, a perk that was free before Musk’s takeover of the social media site.
Twitter workers who survived the chopping block after Elon Musk overpaid for the social media site will soon have to pay for their own meals.The billionaire said he will scrap the free meals served at Twitter’s headquarters in San Francisco because it was costing the company around $400 per worker.
Musk completed his $44 billion takeover of Twitter last month and promptly fired about half of the 7,500-person workforce.
He also proceeded to mandate a return to the office and pointed to the lack of mouths to feed as driving up the cost of the free-lunch program.
Musk took to Twitter on Sunday to say that offering free meals at the company cafeteria had become unsustainable because “almost no one came to the office.”
He estimated the free meals cost the company around $13 million a year.
One Twitter user accused Musk of planning to “starve” employees.

He fired 3/4 of the employees. Now he’s planning to starve the rest of them. He’s failure incarnate. pic.twitter.com/elL8N3D2CB— Andrew Wortman (@AmoneyResists) November 12, 2022
