To recall, Twitter was sued earlier this month for failing to pay $136,250 in rent for its office space in San Francisco amid new chief Musk’s struggle to cut losses. The landlord, Columbia Reit – 650 California LLC claimed that it notified Twitter on December 16 that it would be in default on its lease for the 30th floor of the Hartford Building in five days unless the rent was paid, Bloomberg had reported.
Earlier, the New York Times also reported about the non-payment of rent stating that the micro-blogging platform hasn’t paid rent on its headquarters or any of its other global offices in weeks.
In fact, the company was also sued earlier last month for denial of payment for two charter flights taken by former chief marketing officer Leslie Berland as Musk was preparing to close his $44 billion acquisition of the social media platform.
