  • Elon Musk's private tweets were published by the Delaware Court of Chancery.

  • Musk got put in touch with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella by LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman.

  • Musk and Nadella had a phone call, and Musk gave Nadella "feedback" on Microsoft Teams.

A large sample of Elon Musk's private texts was published Thursday by the Delaware Court of Chancery as part of his ongoing battle with Twitter.

A few of those texts show a correspondence between Musk and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, set up by LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman.

Hoffman set up a group chat with Musk, Nadella, and himself on April 27 — two days after Musk announced he planned to buy Twitter for $44 billion.

Texts between Nadella and Musk show them setting up a phone call, followed by a final text from Nadella: "thx for the call. Will stay in touch. And will for sure follow-up on Teams feedback!"

It's not clear from the texts exactly what Musk and Nadella discussed, or what feedback on Microsoft Teams Musk may have given.

The same day Musk asked Hoffman whether he would like to invest in taking Twitter private.

Microsoft, Musk, and Hoffman did not immediately respond when contacted by Insider for comment outside of usual US working hours.

The texts published by the court gave insight into the network of billionaires and celebrities who corresponded with Musk about his proposed purchase of Twitter — which Musk is now trying to abandon.

Notable names included former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, podcaster Joe Rogan, and billionaire Larry Ellison.
