Elon Musk has immediately put an end to telecommuting on Twitter for the remaining 50 percent of employees, warning them that “the road ahead is difficult and will take intensive work to succeed”.



In his first email to employees, the new Twitter CEO said that “finding and suspending verified bots/trolls/spam will be our absolute top priority in the coming days.” Bloomberg did the news first.

Musk warned that a weaker economic climate in the US would spell trouble for Twitter and there was “no way to disguise the message” about these challenges.

He is also said to have told employees to be in the office at least 40 hours a week.

However, Musk said he would approve remote working only on a case-by-case basis.

In March of this year, then-Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal told employees that where they feel most productive and creative is “where you will work and that includes WFH full time forever”.

“Decisions about where you work, whether you feel safe traveling on business and what events you attend should be yours,” he had told staff.

Meanwhile, several top companies, including insurer Allianz and automaker Audi, have paused ad spend on Twitter in response to Musk’s acquisition.

Musk told advertisers on Wednesday that he had heard their concerns.

In his online meeting with advertisers, Musk told them how paid verification through the Blue subscription service and support for a creator ecosystem could herald growth for Twitter.
