Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, chose to email employees last week about the company's remote-working policy.
The billionaire entrepreneur wrote an email to staff that was sent on Wednesday at 2: 30 am, according to a tweet from Zo Schiffer, the managing editor at Platformer.
Musk wrote in a memo that the company's headquarters in San Francisco was half empty yesterday, per Schiffer's tweet. In November, Musk banned remote work at Twitter in his first email to the staff after he bought the company.
He stated that the social media platform required a lot of work in the office in order to turn around its fortunes and that employees must be in the office for a minimum of 40 hours per week.

Musk asked staff to return to the office, or else they would be fired, as a result of Tesla Inc TSLA.
In a tweet last year, Musk said that working from home during the Pandemic tricked people into thinking they didn't need to work hard.
In November, Twitter laid off thousands of workers in departments across the company, a move that Musk tried to justify. In January, the company laid off employees who were responsible for global content moderation.
Reports previously noted that the platform had lost 80% of its employees since Musk took over and that the headcount hovered at around 1,300 employees earlier this year. Musk later dispelled those figures, saying that Twitter had about 2,300 active employees.
The company posted a net loss of $270 million in the second quarter, which ended on June 30, 2022, compared to a loss of $66 million in the same period the previous year.
