Elon Musk is ready to question Twitter employees for the first time

by Claire Duffy | CNN Business

Elon Musk is set to ask Twitter employees direct questions for the first time this weekend as he agreed to buy the social media company.

Musk will take pre-submitted employee questions in a virtual all-hands meeting on Thursday, a Twitter spokesperson confirmed to CNN Business. The news of the meeting was first reported by Insider.

A day after Twitter and Musk announced the acquisition agreement in April, Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal and board chairman Brett Taylor held an all-round meeting. They were beset with questions about everything from what the deal would mean for his compensation to what Musk’s acquisition might mean for the company’s commitment to ethical artificial intelligence. Agarwal told employees that he would like to take time out for employees to ask Musk direct questions.

This week’s meeting with employees will come against a backdrop of uncertainty over the $44 billion deal, much of which is a direct result of Musk’s public statements. It also comes as several employees and industry watchers have publicly raised concerns about how Musk might enhance Twitter’s products and internal culture.

Musk has been saying for weeks that the deal is “on hold” pending more information about the number of spam bots on the platform. Last week, the Tesla CEO issued his most direct threat that he might walk away from the acquisition. In a letter sent to a Twitter executive, a lawyer for Musk alleged that the company is “actively opposing and undermining his information rights” by giving him a wide range of data, as outlined in the deal. By denying access to it, Musk says it will help him analyze bots on the platform.

According to a Washington Post report last week, Twitter now plans to hand over its “firehose” data — which includes information about tweets and the devices and accounts that post them — to Musk in response to his request. In. However, it is not clear whether Musk will be able to use it to effectively count bots on the platform. Twitter declined to comment on the report. The company regularly releases its estimates of the number of bots on the platform, and has said that such accounts make up less than 5% of monetized daily active users.
