Elon Musk said Sunday that free staff lunches at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters were costing more than $400 per meal because ‘almost no one’ was in the office.
He said that according to badge-in records, average occupancy in the office over the last 12 months was below 10%, peaking at 25%.
Musk was tweeting Sunday after The New York Times reported that Twitter employees would have to start paying for office lunches themselves.
He said criticism of the move was “especially bizarre given that almost no one came into the office,” adding: “There are more people preparing breakfast than eating breakfast. They don’t even bother serving dinner, because there is no one in the building.”
Twitter spends $13 million a year on food service at its San Francisco HQ, Musk said.
