Elon Musk Installs Beds For Twitter Employees….. WTF??

I guess that when Elon Musk said that he wanted employees at Twitter to be “hardcore”, I guess that being able to sleep at work qualifies as being “hardcore”. I am basing that on the fact that Elon is installing beds for Twitter employees:

On Monday, employees returning to work at the company’s San Francisco location were greeted by modest bedrooms featuring unmade mattresses, drab curtains and giant conference-room telepresence monitors — a significant upgrade over the Therm-a-Rest+sleeping bag situation showcased by one Twitter employee in November. One room even has a plant.

A photo of one converted bedroom shared with Forbes showed bright orange carpeting, a wooden bedside table and what appears to be a queen bed, replete with a table lamp and two office armchairs just begging for convivial workplace collaboration.

One source said that no announcement or context was provided to employees, and presumed that the beds are for remaining “hardcore” staffers to be able to stay overnight at the office. “It’s not a good look,” they said. “It’s yet another unspoken sign of disrespect. There is no discussion. Just like, beds showed up.”

Doesn’t Elon have something better to do? Like stop advertisers from leaving or getting ad revenues up because they are in free fall at the moment? Clearly not. I really don’t get what his thought process is and how these beds will help Twitter make money. This is just stupid and sure to backfire on Elon.
