Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk will speak to Twitter employees at a company town hall this week for the first time since entering into an agreement in April to buy the social media giant for $ 44 billion.
The meeting will take place practically on Thursday, when Musk will answer questions from Twitter employees, said a source to Business Insider, who quotes an email to employees from Twitter boss Parag Agrawal.

Agrawal was forced to deal with angry employees during a company-wide meeting in April. The employees demanded answers on how the expected mass exodus as a result of Musk’s purchase would be handled.
