Adding beds to an office space is never a good idea - for an employee's well-being or to comply with local municipal provisions. After reports showed beds and makeshift sleeping areas at Twitter's San Francisco headquarters, the city's authorities are now investigating the company for adding beds to office rooms.

Images of Twitter's SF office went viral on the platform recently, showing conference rooms that had been turned into sleeping quarters. On Monday, Forbes had reported that this was done for Twitter's "hardcore" employees.
