After long weeks of speculation, it is now confirmed, Elon Musk will address Twitter employees this Thursday. This is a first since its takeover offer of 44 billion issued in April.
According to Reuters, the CEO of Tesla will be able to respond live to questions posed by company employees. For its part, Twitter has confirmed the news through a spokesperson.
The question of the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk remains open
The atmosphere could be somewhat tense during this meeting. We know that the positions of the billionaire, who wishes to reduce moderation on the platform, are criticized internally.
An employee who preferred to remain anonymous said: But the idea of bringing more freedom of expression to the platform exposes its naivety when you dig a little deeper into the subject. Many platforms were founded on this principle of freedom of expression, but in reality they either become suffocating cesspools or realize that some level of moderation is necessary. “.
Elon Musk, however, was reassuring about moderation, and during a meeting with the European Commissioner, Thierry Breton, he explained that the new directives adopted by the EU on the subject are going in the right direction.
The question of the effective takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk also remains. He suspended his offer. He asks to know more about the exact proportion of bots on Twitter. After a standoff, the management finally agreed to give him access to all the data it has.
By closely observing the figures, one can imagine that the billionaire could try to get rid of his offer or to renegotiate it downwards. It is also possible that the repurchase will continue under the current terms of the offer.
Very clearly, this file is not ready to come to an end, and all of this looks like a real TV series full of twists and turns. For their part, the current shareholders of Twitter will have to decide on the sale by the beginning of August.
