Elon Musk will answer questions from Twitter employees this week

Elon Musk

Elon Musk will answer questions from Twitter employees for the first time ever, when he joins a virtual company meeting scheduled to be held on Thursday, June 16.

This is according to a letter sent to workers by Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, seen by Business Insider (via Engadget).

Agrawal said the meeting will “cover topics and questions that have been raised over the past few weeks,” and employees will be able to submit questions starting Wednesday. The meeting will be moderated by Twitter’s CMO and head of people Leslie Berland.

There should be no shortage of questions given the uncertain fate of Twitter. Short recap: In late April, Musk officially offered to buy Twitter for approximately $44 billion, and after some back and forth, Twitter’s board agreed.

Musk immediately started proposing changes for the service, and a leaked outline of his plans included grand goals such as a massive increase in both users and revenue (notably, these changes include laying off some employees in 2023). He also said he wanted to democratize Twitter by open sourcing its algorithm, and vowed to get rid of spambots rampant on the platform.

In May, however, Musk said his bid cannot move forward until Twitter provides him with further details regarding its calculation of how many Twitter users are spammy or fake accounts. Last week, Twitter said it will provide Musk with the data he seeks, making the bid more likely to happen — though it’s uncertain at what terms.
