Twitter employees expected to meet with board member Musk

Twitter plans to hold a meeting for employees concerned about Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk’s influence on the company’s board. Said a Twitter spokesperson.

The Twitter official did not disclose the timeframe of format of the meeting.

The social media company named Musk to the board on Tuesday after the outspoken and polarizing executive disclosed he had acquired a more than 9% stake in the company, making him Twitter’s largest shareholder.

In announcing the appointment, Twitter Chief Executive Parag Agrawal said he was “excited” to name Musk, calling him “a passionate believer and intense critic of the service which is exactly what we need.”

Musk said he looked forward to soon making “significant improvements to Twitter.”

The Tesla chief began polling his followers on whether to add an “edit” button on the service, a long-discussed tweak.

But Musk is a break-the-mold figure in American business. His antics have often raised eyebrows and occasionally draw condemnation.

His appointment has sparked misgivings among some employees, according to a report by the Washington Post.
