Whatever billionaire Elon Musk does will undoubtedly cause shock waves, not only in the digital world but also in the physical world.
Elon Musk again caused a stir on Wednesday when he paid a visit to Twitter’s headquarters just days ahead of the deadline for his USD 44 billion buyout agreement. The Tesla CEO was also seen bringing a wash basin to the reception area of the San Francisco office.
Musk Wrote On His Twitter – ‘Chief Twit’!
Elon Musk has shared his video of reaching Twitter’s headquarters, in which he is seen carrying a sink in his hands. He captioned the video and wrote, ‘Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!
After that, he then dropped hints at being the corporation’s ultimate boss just hours before by changing his profile’s bio to “Chief Twit.”
The Attitude Was Changed Due To Differences…
Elon Musk announced the purchase of Twitter on April 13 this year. He had offered to buy this giant social media platform for $44 billion at the rate of $54.2 per share. But due to some spam and fake accounts, he put that deal on hold.
In an SEC filing in early May, Twitter said that only five percent of them had spam accounts on their platform. There was a difference of opinion between Twitter and Musk regarding this matter. After this, on July 8, Musk decided to break the deal. But then at the beginning of October, he changed his stand and again agreed to complete the deal.
Employees May Lose Their Jobs!
Recently, there was news that after the entry of Elon Musk’s Twitter, the existing employees working in Twitter’s office might lose their jobs. The Washington Post quoted interviews and documents as saying that after buying Twitter, Musk could fire 75 percent of the company’s employees.
According to the report, Musk has told his potential investors that he plans to lay off about 75 percent of the company’s 7500 employees.
No Layoff Plans…
However, according to a report, Musk told Twitter employees on Wednesday that he does not plan to lay off 75 percent of employees after taking over the company.
