Twitter’s new CEO is not backing down. Recent reports have revealed that an investigation has been launched for Elon Musk’s Twitter after an anonymous snitch-line complaint prompted San Francisco’s City Hall and Department of Building Inspections to take action.
City officials have alleged that there may be “code violation[s]” to be found at Twitter after it was revealed that there may be beds inside Twitter’s headquarters.
“We need to make sure the building is being used as intended,” said Patrick Hannan, the department communications director, in a statement. “There are different building code requirements for residential buildings, including those being used for short-term stays.”
“No one is above the law,” he added.
Hannan insisted that Musk is not being arbitrarily targeted, claiming that his organization “treat[s] all complaints and property owners the same,” and that the Twitter investigation is “no different from others that are currently underway.”
Musk decided to hit the city back, specifically going after Mayor London Breed. The Twitter CEO shared a recent story about a young baby nearly dying of a fentanyl overdose at a San Francisco park, writing, “So city of SF attacks companies providing beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. Where are your priorities @LondonBreed!?”

Musk has for a long time sparred with many actors on the left, especially after his recent acquisition of Twitter followed by his release of the ‘Twitter Files’ last week.
The batch of documents undoubtedly proved what many already knew — various groups of people working for or with Twitter were actively colluding in order to censor various bits of compromising political information including the infamous Hunter Biden laptop story.
Many of these efforts to censor information are even publicly acknowledged; White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre took no issue openly declaring at a news briefing last month that the Biden administration is “keeping a close eye” on Twitter in response to a question asking how the regime will go about “ensuring that Twitter does not become a vector of misinformation.”
