San Francisco: Tesla CEO Elon Musk is set to speak to Twitter employees for the first time this week in a bid to allay their fears and share his vision.

Musk will address Twitter employees via a virtual meeting on Thursday, Insider reports, and answer their questions about his $44 billion takeover deal he has put on hold until he gets answers about attendance. of bots on the micro-blogging platform.

The event was reportedly heralded by Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal in an email to employees, when he told them to submit questions to Musk ahead of time.

Earlier this month, Twitter’s board reportedly planned to give Musk access to the massive “firehose” data stream comprising more than 500 million tweets posted every day.

Shortly after striking a $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter in April, Musk demanded information about spam and fake accounts.

He even threatened to back out of the deal if the company didn’t provide the data.

To end the standoff with the billionaire, Twitter’s board of directors has planned to comply with access to data it says is needed to assess the number of fake users on the platform.

The information could be provided as early as this week, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, according to the report.

The data not only includes a real-time record of tweets, but also the devices they are tweeting from, as well as information about which accounts are tweeting.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO said earlier that he doesn’t believe Twitter’s findings that fake accounts or spam accounts for less than 5% of its monetizable daily active users (229 million).
