During the 45-minute company-wide call discussing Musk’s Twitter takeover, Twitter’s censorship lawyer can be heard crying in a leaked audio of the meeting.
Today, a newly leaked audio recording of Twitter’s leadership addressing staff about worries about Elon Musk’s purchase of the company surfaced.
Twitter employees questioned board member Bret Taylor and CEO Parag Agrawal about the company’s direction and Musk’s motivations for buying the social media platform during a 45-minute company-wide call.
Taylor began the conference by acknowledging that many members of the staff were taken aback by the pace with which the Twitter-Musk discussions unfolded.
“I also just want to acknowledge all the emotions of today. It is an emotional day. I want to acknowledge it,” Taylor said. He justified the company’s sale by saying, “By law, we are required to act in the best interest of our shareholders.”

Agrawal expressed similar concerns about the impact this had on many Twitter employees.
“It’s important to acknowledge that all of you have many different feelings about what is happening,” Agrawal said.
“Many of you are concerned, some of you excited, many people here are waiting to understand how this goes and have an open mind,” he said.
The Twitter CEO went so far as to suggest that the company’s present “content moderation” policies are “fundamental to keeping Twitter safe and growing,” in an attempt to reassure people of Musk’s takeover.
“We’ll be finding a way to have Elon talk with all of you at the soonest possible opportunity…As you’ve heard from all of us, we don’t have all the answers,” Agrawal said.
