Elon Musk slammed by critics after claiming he ‘slept on couch’ at Twitter HQ

Chief Twit Elon Musk has been slammed for a series of claims made over bedding options at Twitter HQ, and has since claimed he slept on a couch in the offices.

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Musk, responding to backlash over bedrooms propped up on Twitter HQ's property, claims to have made up his bed in the Twitter library.

Musk, 51, has been criticised by some for allegedly turning the offices of Twitter into a sleeping quarters, where staff can remain should their work take them late into the night.

The company is now under investigation following a complaint alleging some rooms were turned into bedrooms.

Musk appears to have responded to such criticism by openly mocking it on Twitter, claiming he had slept in the library of Twitter HQ.

Tweeting out about his claim, Musk said: "I slept on a couch in the Twitter library and I don’t ever wear slippers."

His tweet, which drew over 100,000 likes and thousands of retweets, was in reply to a user writing of the allegations that Musk had been sleeping on the premises following the takeover of the social media platform.

According to one anonymous employee, parts of the office have been turned into "modest bedrooms" with mattresses, curtains and "four to eight beds a floor", The Guardian reported.

Bedrooms added to the headquarters of Twitter come just a month after Musk had sent a staff-wide email saying that those who had remained with the company must be "extremely hardcore" in their dedication.

Another former worker said that the bedroom additions made the place seem eerily similar to that of a "hotel", BBC reported.

Musk has since slammed criticism of the bedrooms and the subsequent investigation by suggesting investigations should focus instead on the death of a youngster who ingested fentanyl rather than "providing beds for tired employees".

The addition of beds and hotel-like structures in the offices of Twitter come as Musk warned the 1.5bn present Twitter users to "post tweets" otherwise he will delete their account, Daily Star reported.
