Elon Musk to Join Twitter CEO Agrawal for Staff Q&A Next Week

(Bloomberg) -- Elon Musk, who was added to Twitter Inc.’s board after accumulating a stake in the social network, will join Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal at a company all-hands meeting next week to address employee questions.

Agrawal will host Musk at the Q&A session to help ease internal concerns about the impact the billionaire will have on the company’s internal culture and policies, according to the Washington Post, which earlier reported the meeting. A Twitter spokesman confirmed the company’s plans.

On April 4, Musk, 50, disclosed that he’d taken a more than 9% stake in Twitter. The following day, Twitter said Musk was joining its board, and Musk filed a new form with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission classifying himself as an active investor. He had earlier submitted the form reserved for passive shareholders.

Musk, CEO of automaker Tesla Inc., is the world’s richest man, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He’s also one of the biggest personalities on Twitter and has regularly stirred controversy on the platform. He is currently seeking to exit a 2018 deal with the SEC that put controls in place related to his tweeting about Tesla.

Citing internal company messages, the Washington Post on Thursday reported that some workers in recent days have expressed concern on Twitter’s employee Slack channels that Musk could inflict damage to the company’s culture, as well as make it harder for people to do their jobs.
