Elon Musk, the newly appointed owner of Twitter Inc., sent his first email to employees late on Wednesday, warning them of “difficult times ahead.”

According to the email reviewed by Bloomberg News, Musk claimed there was “no way to sugarcoat the news” regarding the economic outlook and how it will damage a firm that depends on advertising like Twitter. Subject to exceptions he himself would accept, he claimed remote work will no longer be permitted and staff will be required to spend at least 40 hours per week in the office.

Since taking over as CEO of Twitter, Musk has let go of over half of the company’s employees as well as the majority of its senior team. The cost of the Twitter Blue subscription has increased to $8 under the new leader, and user verification has been added. In the email, Musk expressed his desire for subscriptions to make up half of Twitter’s revenue.
