After acquiring the social network, Elon Musk stopped paying the rent of several of his offices to save money. The company was also sued by several owners in the US.
The Crown Domain, which manages assets owned by the British monarchy, said on Tuesday that it was suing the American social network Twitter, accusing it of failing to pay rent for its London headquarters. A spokesperson for the Crown Estate said it had contacted Twitter and was currently in talks with the company, which was bought last year by billionaire Elon Musk for $44 billion.
The logo has been removed, according to The Telegraph.
According to US media reports, the founder of Tesla and Space X subsequently fired half of the employees and stopped paying the rent of several of his offices to save money. Thus, the company was sued by several owners in the United States. In London, Twitter’s headquarters is owned by the Crown Estate, one of the UK’s largest landowners.
According to The Telegraph, the social media logo has been removed from the building, but a company employee indicated that it is still present in the building. Twitter was unavailable to comment on this information.
