(Reuters) – A source said Monday that Elon Musk will talk to Twitter Inc. (NYSE:TWTR) employees at a company-wide meeting this week for the first time since he announced his $44 billion bid in April, a source said Monday, citing an email from Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal to staff.
The meeting is set for Thursday, and a source said that Musk will answer questions directly from Twitter employees.
Business Insider was the first to report the news. Last week, Twitter said that shareholders would vote on the sale by early August.
A Twitter representative said that Musk would be at this week’s all-hands meeting.
Since Musk’s attempt to take over Twitter, many of its employees have worried that the billionaire’s strange behaviour could upset the business and hurt it financially.
In April, Agrawal was seen calming angry employees during a company-wide meeting. The employees wanted to know how managers planned to handle a mass exodus that they thought would be caused by Musk.
Musk told Twitter last week that he might back out of his deal to buy the company if it didn’t give him the information he wanted about spam and fake accounts.
