Elon Musk to Participate in Twitter All-Hands Meeting Thursday
Elon Musk is set to participate in an all-hands meeting with Twitter Inc. TWTR -5.00%▼ employees on Thursday, marking the first time the billionaire will have spoken directly with the company’s workforce since he began his courtship of it in April.
Twitter Chief Executive Parag Agrawal announced the meeting in an email to staffers on Monday, saying they could submit questions for Mr. Musk in advance, a spokesman said. The company’s marketing chief, Leslie Berland, will moderate the event, he said.
Twitter shares—which have been trading under Mr. Musk’s offer price, amid investor doubt the deal would happen—climbed close to 3% in after-hours trading Monday following the reports of the all-hands meeting. They ended the regular trading day at around $37, well below the offer price of $54.20.
