There nonetheless may well be serious doubts about whether or not his takeover of Twitter will occur or now not however that hasn’t stopped Elon Musk sharing his plans for the social media platform. In a up to date interview with Recode, Musk addressed Twitter staff in a Q&A consultation. The Tesla CEO took questions in the past submitted via Twitter staff the place they’d requested him about his stand on far off paintings, how he plans to care for the corporate after taking on and if he has any plans for layoffs.
On his stand on far off paintings, Musk reiterated what he has stated previous, and added that perhaps tool and design roles at Tesla can also be controlled remotely however to avail it, other people in the ones roles will have to be outstanding at their activity, in order that it’s imaginable for them to be efficient when they’re running remotely. As for the opposite departments, particularly those that contain paintings that can’t be performed remotely like bringing within the automobile portions, assembling the auto after which transporting it to the landlord, far off paintings isn’t one thing to be regarded as. And even if any individual is operating remotely, they have got to turn up on the place of business “sometimes”.
Musk added: “So with Tesla, I’ve merely requested for a listing — that the executive has to verify — that they’re a very good contributor, and in the event that they do, they’re allowed to paintings remotely.”
On layoffs and different Twitter plans
As for layoffs at Twitter, Musk stated that any one who’s a vital contributor don’t need to fear about them and that he does now not take movements “that are disruptive to the well being of the corporate.” He additionally stated that the prices exceeding the income isn’t an ideal state of affairs to be in. In his personal phrases, “And so there would must be some clarification of headcount and bills to have income be more than value. Another way, Twitter is solely now not viable or can’t develop.”
When requested to proportion his ideas on how he compensates staff at SpaceX as a personal corporate and what manner he plans to take at Twitter as a personal corporate, Musk had this to mention: “Yeah. So SpaceX, I feel, operates in the most efficient of each worlds, the place inventory and choices are issued to everybody. However we don’t have the entire demanding situations of being a publicly traded corporate with a inventory that may be up and down from sooner or later to the following — it may be reasonably a distraction — and the place one is on the mercy of brief dealers and sophistication motion complaints. … It’s like being within the public stockade through which they simply throw tomatoes at you all day. SpaceX nonetheless lets in liquidity, so each and every six months, there’s a liquidity match at SpaceX, and other people have the ability to promote their stocks. And that’s labored really well for the whole thing of the corporate. So I feel one thing like that will make sense at Twitter. So it could nonetheless be inventory and choices and each day, and it could simply be liquidity occasions two times a yr.”
