Elon Musk ends remote-work policy at Twitter, Staff warned of ‘difficult times ahead’
Hours after Twitter CEO Elon Musk predicted he would do “a lot of stupid things” as he learns to navigate the new social media platform, he told his employees to prepare for “difficult times.”
In a mass email Wednesday afternoon, Musk said there was “no way to sugarcoat the message” and that employees should expect changes in office policy, Bloomberg News reported.
The email said Kasturi was ending remote work and required employees to be in the office at least 40 hours a week. Any exceptions require their individual consent.

Musk said half of Twitter’s revenue is expected to come from subscription services and newly proposed verification fees. He said that content creators can monetize supporters without over-extending their pages. Biden calls Elon Musk a ‘threat’ to national security, ties ‘one to watch’
The email came shortly after Musk implemented, then quickly deleted the new official badge icon on the platform, before users could expect more changes.
“Remember that Twitter will do a lot of stupid things in the coming months. Let’s keep what works and change what doesn’t,” he wrote.
The “official” blue “verified” badge appeared on several accounts but was eventually removed. The subscription plan costs between $4 and $8 per month, the company said. Twitter adds ‘Authorized’ label to select verified accounts – then reverses course
“In the coming days, we’ll be adding granularity to verified badges like enterprise engagement and ID verification,” Musk added in another tweet.
Also: “The newly reviewed blue release is intentionally limited to iOS only. Some countries only have a few ads. While we work on the issues, we will expand to all platforms worldwide.”

Musk said it will add features such as a more robust direct messaging system, an option to save videos, and deactivating or deleting inactive accounts to clear user profile names.
