A new step for your acquisition of Twitter gave this Thursday June 16 Elon Musksince he met virtually with the employees of the company founded by Jack Dorsey, to answer questions from the workers.

On the occasion, the owner of Tesla said that the little bird’s social network should be more like WeChat and TikTok and also announced layoffs due to the financial condition of the business.

Twitter should copy WeChat and TikTok

  • “There is no WeChat equivalent outside of China,” Musk said after being 10 minutes late for the virtual meeting via his phone camera. “You basically live on WeChat in China. If we can recreate that with Twitter, we will be a huge success.”

When asked what Twitter’s success will look like in five to 10 years, Musk said the company should “contribute to a stronger and more enduring civilization where we are better able to understand the nature of reality.”

Remote work on Twitter

  • “If someone can only work remotely, and they’re exceptional, it wouldn’t make sense to fire them,” Musk said in response to a question about his stance on the policy, according to a person who heard the call. “Definitely not in favor of things that are crazy.”

Layoffs on Twitter

  • “Right now, costs outweigh revenue,” Musk said when asked about the possibility of layoffs during an internal question-and-answer session, according to employees who heard the comments. “That’s not a great situation.”
