Elon Musk has hired two of his cousins on his father’s side to become full-time Twitter employees. Andrew Musk, his cousin James’ son and the billionaire’s uncle, now appears to be a full-time Twitter employee, a new report claims. A Business Insider report suggests that Andrew Musk works on software-engineering projects, while James Musk is a “fixer type” who exists on Twitter to help Elon Musk with various tasks, an insider said.
These aren’t the only employees Musk has brought on. The report claimed that Musk hired engineers from Tesla and The Boring Company. Additionally, he’s bringing on Twitter’s Alex Spiro and Jared Birchall, who run Musk’s family office, Axion. The report also claims that several of Musk’s confidants, including some of the names mentioned above, are sleeping at the company’s headquarters, which has converted office space into bedrooms.
The San Francisco Department of Building Inspection is reportedly launching an investigation into the construction of living spaces within the office. Elon Musk did not deny this report and tried to justify it through a tweet. He added, “So the city of SF attacks companies providing beds for tired workers instead of making sure babies are safe from fentanyl. Where are your priorities @LondonBreed!?”

Elon Musk fired more than half of Twitter’s employees within days of taking over the social media platform. The company got rid of about 70 percent of its entire workforce the following week after thousands of employees walked out. Musk claimed that Twitter was full of managers and had few engineers. They fired most of the contract workers and even more than 90 per cent of the company’s team in India.
