Some Twitter employees will need to print out the code they wrote to prove their work. This was reported by The New York Times on Friday, citing its sources.

The New York Times: Twitter programmers were asked to print the written code to prove their work

According to them, some employees were asked to print out copies of program codes for possible proof of their activities in the company due to fears associated with dismissal. Twitter has also put a “code freeze” in place to prevent any changes from being added to the app.

Recall that on Thursday, Elon Musk closed the deal to buy Twitter. Among the innovations expected with its arrival is the abolition of the practice of perpetual blocking of users. Musk has already announced that he is creating a special council that will study the issue of Twitter moderation. In the meantime, he promised not to make serious decisions in this area.

“This is another unspoken sign of disrespect,” the Twitter office equipped sleeping quarters for “hardcore” employees

This is another unspoken sign of disrespect the Twitter office

According to Forbes, earlier this week, Twitter employees discovered several sleeping areas in the company’s San Francisco office. They were organized in conference rooms, where beds and bedside tables with lamps appeared.

The whistleblower and Twitter said employees were given no explanation for the change and suggested that the beds are for the remaining “hardcore” employees so they can stay overnight in the office. “This is another unspoken sign of disrespect. No one discussed this with us,” said one of the employees.

Last month, CEO Elon Musk gave the thousands of employees remaining at the company the option to leave or stay on the condition that they work hard under Twitter 2.0. Since taking over as owner and CEO, Musk has fired at least half of Twitter’s employees, with many leaving of their own accord.

Another source, who wished to remain anonymous, suggested that there could be “four to eight of these bedrooms per floor,” adding that “they look comfortable.”

One room’s trash bin was reportedly filled with trash, meaning someone had already slept there: “People are already working late into the night, so that kind of makes sense.”

According to Business Insider, the American billionaire and owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, brought quite a few people to the company, among whom were employees of his other companies and relatives.

We reported this morning that Elon Musk briefly lost his title as the richest man in the world on Wednesday, according to Forbes.

Google degrades in Google Photos the definition of the place

Google has warned users about a new location policy for Google Photos (Google Photos).

Google degrades in Google Photos the definition of the place where the photo was taken

Google Photos will stop using a user account’s location history to determine where specific pictures were taken, according to a new support document. This policy will apply to users who have opted out of sharing location data for the camera app for privacy reasons.

Until now, if you didn’t allow the camera app to use your current location, Google Photos used two methods to roughly estimate where you took the photo. First, the app will try to identify visible landmarks in your photos, and second, it will use your location history to narrow down the area.

However, now Google Photos will rely solely on trying to identify landmarks in photos. As you can easily guess, this method is noticeably less reliable.

Google notes that the change has already started rolling out to some Google Photos users, with a full rollout expected in the coming months.
