New Delhi:

Twitter has shut its India offices in Delhi and Mumbai, while the Bangalore office continues to operate, reported Bloomberg on Friday, citing anonymous sources.
Employees have reportedly been instructed to work from home in the meantime.
This is not the company’s first cost cutting measure, as a large majority of Twitter’s India-based staff was fired last year after the $44 billion takeover by Elon Musk.

The news comes weeks after workers in Twitter’s Singapore office were escorted out of the building by landlords. They were also instructed to work from home, according to Bloomberg.
Twitter is further facing rent issues in several of its worldwide offices as it embarks on a series of cost-cutting and product monetisation measures under the leadership of Mr. Musk.
