Bloomberg obtained an email sent to employees on Wednesday morning. He says Twitter will significantly reduce its presence in San Francisco by moving from an office on Tenth Street, directly behind the Market Street headquarters.

As for his plans to open an office across the bay in Oakland? This idea is now also irrelevant.

The company is looking to maintain but scale its office footprint in Tokyo, Mumbai, New Delhi, Dublin, New York and San Francisco. It is also considering closing offices or offering alternative workspaces in Seoul, Wellington, Osaka, Madrid, Hamburg, Sydney and Utrecht.

According to a Twitter spokesperson, “We are evaluating our global portfolio of offices and resizing certain locations based on usage. We have proven that we can operate our business successfully with a distributed workforce over the years and remain committed to our employees, our customers and the markets we serve. These decisions do not impact our current workforce or the roles of our employees, and we will continue to support and meet regularly with our customers to help them launch something new and connect with what is happening. on Twitter.

It comes after a Delaware judge set up a trial in October as Elon Musk lost a fight to delay the social media giant’s lawsuit against him for walking away from a deal to buy it.
