Twitter spent over $13M per year on food service, Musk reveals!  

Elon Musk claims that Twitter spent $13 million per year on food services at its headquarters!

He addressed a tweet by the company’s former Vice President of Work Transformation, Tracy Hawkins, who ran the food program on Twitter until a week ago.

She replied that Twitter only spent between a range of $20-$25 a day per person which allowed employees to work through lunch and meetings.

Hawkins said that Elon Musk’s earlier claims that almost no one came to the office and that the estimated cost per lunch served in the past 12 months was over $400 were a lie, to which Hawkins added that she left the company because she didn’t want to work for Elon Musk.

Musk response on the whole food program issue

In his response to Hawkins, Elon Musk pointed out that there are more people preparing breakfast than eating it. “They don’t even bother serving dinner because there is no one in the building.” He added that badge-in records revealed that the peak occupancy was 25% and the average occupancy was below 10%.

Elon Musk’s initial response was to @NicheGamer, who shared a tweet by Andrew Wortman that claimed Elon Musk fired three-quarters of the employees and was planning to ‘starve’ the remaining employees. Wortman’s complaint was that Twitter would start charging for lunch instead of giving it away for free.
