Boring Company CEO slept at Twitter HQ with partner and New Baby: Report

  • The Boring Company CEO slept at Twitter headquarters with his partner and baby, The Information reported.
  • Steve Davis and his family all slept in its makeshift bedroom for weeks after the baby was born.
  • The former SpaceX engineer was brought in by Elon Musk after he took over Twitter in October.

The Boring Company CEO slept at Twitter headquarters with his partner and newborn baby, The Information reported.

Steve Davis spent the first few weeks after his baby was born sleeping in a makeshift bedroom in the San Francisco office, with his partner.

Davis has spent the last two months working for Twitter after Elon Musk sought his help. He was among the first to sleep overnight in the office, according to The Information, citing former Twitter employees.

His partner, a real estate manager, sat in on meetings while he nursed their newborn to discuss Twitter’s real estate situation, the report said.

Davis joined SpaceX in 2003 and in 2019 was president of The Boring Company. He used to own a bar called “Thomas Foolery” as well as a yogurt shop which he later sold for $1.

The news comes after a Twitter employee tweeted a photo of his boss sleeping on the office floor with an eye mask, pillow and sleeping bag last month. The manager, Esther Crawford, responded in a tweet, saying: “When your team is pushing around the clock to make deadlines sometimes #SleepWhereYouWork.”

Musk told staff in an email the same month that they would have to work “long hours at a high intensity” and be “extremely hardcore” — or quit.

Forbes revealed earlier this month that “Chief Twit” had converted some space in the San Francisco office into bedrooms. The bedrooms were furnished with television screens, chairs, desks and lamps, show pictures of the converted conference rooms. One even has a wardrobe, air purifier and a washing machine.

Soon after, the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection said it was investigating the building’s use after a complaint was made.

Musk lashed out at London Breed, the mayor of San Francisco, in one tweet: “So the city of SF is attacking businesses that provide beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. Where are your priorities @LondonBreed!?”

Twitter and Davis did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Insider.
