An Elon Musk AMA with Twitter employees has been cancelled by Twitter
Twitter employees were supposed to hold a rare AMA with Elon Musk, the company’s controversial board member, to express their displeasure with Musk’s appointment to the board, but Bloomberg reports that the town hall has been cancelled as a result of Musk’s decision to resign from the board.
Workers at Twitter might express their concerns about Musk in person at a “ask me anything” meeting that was scheduled for this week. Employees have expressed fear that Musk’s criticism of Twitter’s content moderation measures will jeopardise the platform’s efforts to combat hate speech and disinformation. These issues were also brought up off-Twitter.
As a result, the workforce can now exhale a sigh of relief (and according to some of their tweets, they are relieved indeed). Workers don’t need to prepare any questions for this AMA since that Musk has apparently opted not to join the board, though the reasons for this are yet unknown. According to Bloomberg, the corporation is offering its employees a monthly day of relaxation on Monday, making the timing ideal.
Even though the AMA has been cancelled, many people are wondering what will happen now that Musk has opted out of serving on Twitter’s board of directors. In and of itself, the move is hardly shocking: As a board member, he would have been subject to Twitter’s code of conduct, and his investment would have been limited to 14.9 percent. In his weekend tweets, Elon Musk recommended everything from turning Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters into a homeless shelter to removing advertising from the company’s Twitter Blue subscription service. In addition, it’s probable that Musk wants to purchase a larger stake in the firm. It used to be the case that the CEO of Tesla was the largest shareholder in the company, but that has changed now that Vanguard has purchased an even larger interest.
