Elon Musk to Address Twitter Staff for the First Time This Week
Elon Musk’s Twitter buyout has been in progress since April, and for the first time, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO is set to address the company’s employees.
Musk is set to attend a company-wide meeting at Twitter on Thursday, as stated in an email by CEO Parag Agrawal on Monday, reports Business Insider.
The meeting will mark Musk’s first time speaking with Twitter employees since the process of taking over the social media company began a few months ago.
Twitter employees will be able to begin submitting questions to Musk as soon as Wednesday, and the Q&A will be moderated by Twitter’s Leslie Berland, the chief marketing officer and head of people.
Musk has remained a significant topic at Twitter since the buyout process began, with some employees expressing “anger” and “disappointment,” while some have even quit in protest.

In the email sent to employees, Twitter’s Agrawal said, “we’ll cover topics and questions that have been raised over the past few weeks.”
Musk has raised a personal $33.5 billion to help fund the purchase of Twitter, with financing coming from several areas including former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Twitter finally accepted Musk’s request for bot data last week, with Musk saying in the previous month that the deal would be contingent on this data.
