For the first time since launching his $44 billion (£36.2 billion) bid for Twitter in April, Elon Musk will speak to Twitter staff on Thursday.

At the meeting, Tesla’s multibillionaire CEO will field questions from Twitter employees. Mr. Musk has stated that if the company does not share data on false accounts on the site, he will terminate the agreement.

In an email to employees on Monday, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal announced the event. Employees could submit questions to Mr. Musk before the meeting, according to Mr. Agrawal.

A Twitter representative confirmed to the BBC that the revelation, which was initially reported by Business Insider, is true.

Mr. Musk will address the company’s staff for the first time since declaring his takeover offer at the all-hands meeting.

He threatened to back out of the arrangement earlier this month, claiming that the social media platform was “thwarting” his requests for more information about its user base.

Mr. Musk claimed he had the right to measure spam accounts himself in a letter to regulators.

The letter formalized a squabble that had been brewing for weeks since he put the sale “on hold,” pending more information.

According to analysts, Mr. Musk may be attempting to renegotiate the price or perhaps walk away from the acquisition because of the difficulty. They claimed that his decision to bring the issue up on social media was unusual, making it impossible to assess his seriousness.

In a series of tweets, Elon Musk responded with a poo emoji when Mr. Agrawal defended the company’s process for spotting bogus accounts.

Mr. Musk’s offer price of $54.20 for the company’s shares was $37.03 a share at the end of New York trading on Monday.
