Billionaire Elon Musk will speak to the Twitter employees days after his former girlfriend Amber Heard said the ‘hate and vitriol’ she suffered on social media during her libel trial against Johnny Depp was not ‘fair.’ During this discussion, employees will have the opportunity to ask questions concerning Musk’s rumored takeover of the firm. After the first claim was published by Business Insider, a spokeswoman for the online short-form platform provided confirmation of Musk’s participation at the event.
Since April, when he first announced his intention to acquire Twitter, this will be the first time that Musk has directly spoken with members of Twitter’s workforce. On Wednesday, employees will be given the opportunity to start submitting questions for Musk. According to Insider, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal reportedly sent everyone a memo in which he said, “We’ll discuss subjects and concerns that have been raised over the previous several weeks.”
Concern among some Twitter workers about the ramifications of the Tesla CEO’s impending acquisition was prompted by the news that Musk would purchase Twitter for an estimated price of $44 billion after the declaration that he would do so. Shortly after the news was out, workers voiced their concerns to management about the potential impact that CEO Elon Musk’s unpredictable conduct may have on the bottom line of the firm.
In addition, they voiced concerns over the potential trajectory of their careers inside the firm should Musk continue to hold the reins. Musk has encountered a number of issues that he sees as potentially endangering to the deal ever since he announced his bid to buy the company.
One of these issues is the company’s failure to be upfront about the true number of bot accounts populating the site, which Musk sees as potentially endangering the deal. According to lawyers for the billionaire entrepreneur, Twitter’s refusal to engage in meaningful dialogue over the matter constitutes a “clear significant breach of Twitter’s duties under the merger agreement.” The corporation has said that it will find a solution to the problem and continue with the arrangement anyway.
