Twitter is again accused of rent arrears – and this time it’s about King Charles | Science and technology news


Twitter is being sued by the Crown Estate over allegations of unpaid rent at its London headquarters.

The Crown Estate, which manages a property portfolio owned by the monarchy, filed a lawsuit in the High Court last week.

Twitter’s office is near Piccadilly Circus in central London – but the tech giant has reportedly removed signs and logos from the plaza in recent months.

According to The Daily Telegraph, Twitter had signed a £2.6m lease for the third floor but the dispute relates to rent arrears on the first floor of the same building.

Elon Musk acquired the company in a $44bn (£35bn) deal last year and subsequently began shedding thousands of jobs.

This isn’t the first time Twitter has faced accusations of unpaid rent at its offices.

Earlier this month, the landlord at its San Francisco headquarters claimed the company owed $136,260 (£110,073).

Twitter has yet to comment on the Crown Estate’s recent allegations.
