Twitter allegedly has illegal bedrooms at HQ, SF officials are investigating

San Francisco officials are investigating a complaint claims Twitter illegally converted part of its headquarters into bedrooms.

The complaint was filed with the city’s 311 service by a user on the social media network itself, after Forbes reported that some conference rooms had been converted into “modest bedrooms with unmade mattresses, drab drapes and huge conference room telepresence monitors.”

Unnamed Twitter staffers told Forbes that an estimated four to eight bedrooms per floor were installed at the 1355 Market St. building. The Chronicle has not been able to independently verify the claims. City records indicate that there were no requests to convert any part of the building to residential use.

Twitter owner Elon Musk appeared to confirm the company had installed beds and slammed London Mayor Breed for scrutinizing the company instead of focusing on the city’s drug crisis.

“So the City of SF is targeting companies that provide beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. What are your priorities @LondonBreed!?” musk posted on twitter, Link to a Chronicle story about a 10-month-old baby’s reported fentanyl overdose.

The City Building Inspectorate is seeking a site inspection for possible violations and has contacted the building manager for more information.
