Following news that Tesla CEO Elon Musk purchased a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter and will join Twitter’s Board of Directors, the social media company apparently plans to address employee concerns with the change.
Twitter plans to hold an Ask Me Anything (AMA) event with Musk to address employee concerns about his decision to join the company’s board, according to a report from The Washington Post (via Business Insider).
The news came from a company-wide email from Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, which followed after many employees expressed anger and disappointment at Musk becoming a part of the company.

In the email, Agrawal wrote, “We say that Twitter is what’s happening and what people are talking about right now. Often, we [at] Twitter are what’s happening and what people are talking about. That has certainly been the case this week.”
Agrawal continued, “Following our board announcement, many of you have had different types of questions about Elon Musk, and I want to welcome you to ask those questions to him.”
The news of the purchase came under a month after Musk asked a judge to halt the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC’s) oversight of his Twitter, around the same time he questioned Twitter’s principles of free speech.
