According to The Information, the CEO of the Boring Company slept at Twitter’s HQ with his partner and baby.
After the baby was born, Steve Davis and his family slept in its makeshift bedrooms.
Elon Musk hired the former SpaceX engineer after he took over Twitter in October
After his baby was born, Steve Davis and his partner slept in a makeshift bedroom in the San Francisco office for the first few weeks. A Twitter source confirmed the report, saying they had seen Davis working at the company. Davis has worked for Twitter for the past two months after Elon Musk asked for his help. According to former Twitter employees, he was among the first to sleep overnight at the office, according to The Information.
His partner, a real estate asset manager, would sit in on meetings while nursing their newborn to discuss Twitter’s real estate situation, the report says. Davis joined SpaceX in 2003 and by 2019 he was president of The Boring Company. He also used to own a bar called Thomas Foolery as well as a yogurt store that he later sold for $1. The news comes after a Twitter employee tweeted a photo of his boss asleep on the office floor with an eye mask, cushion and sleeping bag last month. The boss, Esther Crawford, responded in a tweet and said: When your team is pushing round the clock to make deadlines sometimes you have to #SleepWhereYouWork.
During the same month, Musk told staff they would be required to work long hours at high intensity – or quit.
The “Chief Twit” converted some space in his San Francisco office into bedrooms earlier this month, Forbes reported. According to photos of the converted conference rooms, the bedrooms have TV screens, chairs, desks, and lamps. One even comes with a wardrobe, air purifier, and washing machine.
A complaint led the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection to investigate the building’s use.
“So the city of SF attacks companies that provide beds for tired employees, instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. Where are your priorities @LondonBreed!” Musk tweeted.
Insider contacted Twitter and Davis for comment, but neither responded immediately.
