Columbia Reit – 650 California LLC is suing Twitter for non-payment of office space fees. About that writes Bloomberg. The social network owed the landlord more than $136,000. Twitter has not yet commented on the information. Journalists note that now the social network does not have a department responsible for press relations.
Journalists found out that the company is renting the 30th floor of the Hartford Building. Before filing the lawsuit, the landlord posted a statement on Twitter, demanding that all debts be paid within five days. The company failed to meet these requirements, prompting Columbia Reit – 650 California LLC to file a lawsuit in the San Francisco State Court.
Rumors of Twitter not paying bills surfaced shortly after Elon Musk bought the social network. In mid-December, the New York Post reported that the company had not paid rent on all of its offices for several weeks. In addition, lawsuits have been filed against the company for failure to pay for two charter flights.
Musk took over Twitter in October 2022. He became CEO of the social network and turned the social network into a private company. The company is not yet threatened with insolvency, the entrepreneur said at the end of December, but there is still a lot to do. Musk also held a vote on Twitter that resulted in him agreeing to step down as CEO once he finds a replacement.
