    Ever since Musk did the acquisition of Twitter, the company has been involved in some controversy or other. Even in 2023, things are not looking good for the social media giant.

    According to a CNN report, a commercial landlord has sued the company for a breach of contract after they failed to pay rent for one of its offices in the San Francisco region.

    The lawsuit’s focus is on the office space at 650 California Street and not it’s main headquarters in Market Street. Last month it was reported that Musk had ordered not to pay rent for Twitter’s office space worldwide and not to pay company vendors in an effort to cut costs.

    According to the complaint, the social media giant missed a rent payment of $136,260 for its office space. They were given five more business days for the payment which they failed.
