At its offices at 1355 Market Street in San Francisco, the firm owned by Musk (but not run by him) today made an attempt to have the Twitter sign taken down.
However, the arrival of law enforcement interrupted their efforts. Here is why…

Police in the area informed the San Francisco Standard, however, that the whole thing was a misunderstanding:
“At approximately 12:39 P.M. officers assigned to Tenderloin Station responded to the area of 10th and Market Street regarding a report of a possible unpermitted street closure.
Through their investigation officers were able to determine that no crime was committed, and this incident was not a police matter.”
