Elon Musk put forward the idea of turning Twitter headquarters in San Francisco into a homeless shelter, saying that ‘no one is showing up’ at the office.
Convert Twitter SF HQ to homeless shelter since no one shows up anyway

Six hours after Musk published the poll, the vast majority of users voted to repurpose Twitter’s headquarters according to his proposal: about 91% of 912,867 votes.
San Francisco, a wealthy city with several well-known technology companies, is home to a large number of homeless people. It is estimated that in 2020, there were 5,200 homeless people on the streets of San Francisco.
After a while, Musk posted another poll, this time asking his subscribers if they wanted to “delete the letter w on Twitter.” The only possible answers to this question were “Yes” and “Of course”.
Last week, it became known that Musk had acquired a 9.2% stake in Twitter, making him the company’s largest shareholder. Twitter later announced that Musk had been appointed a member of the company’s board of directors.
