Just like my dog's favorite chewed-up tennis ball, no matter how far I try to throw this story away, it just keeps reappearing at my feet. Elon Musk addressed Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) employees for the first time yesterday to discuss his impending takeover of the company.
If you were hoping for intrigue, Elon definitely delivered here, with talk of growth, potential layoffs, and even some musings on extraterrestrial life.
Let's just dive right in.
Musk joined the video call fashionably late by around 10 minutes and set about answering employees' questions. Some key themes emerged, with answers being sought on changes to Twitter's product, workplace policies, and Musk's stance on free speech.
Musk addressed each of these questions to some degree, but drew the ire of the crowd for being non-descript about the future of the company. Employees reportedly took to their company Slack channel en masse to demand that the moderator press Elon further on his plans.
I'll try and sum up some of Musk's more important points in quickfire fashion:

Never a dull moment, eh?
