Sounds great !
Happy to talk if you'd like
That will be very helpful . Please call me when you have a moment

Have a few mins to chat ? I'm eager to move fast
Sure , I'm just on a SpaceX engine review call .
Please call me after
I'm excited to share that we're appointing @elonmusk to our board ! Through conversations with Elon in recent weeks , it became clear to me that he would bring great value to our Board . Why ? Above all else , he's both a passionate believer and intense critic of the service which is exactly what we need on Twitter , and in the Boardroom , to make us stronger in the long - term . Welcome Elon !
Sending out shortly ?
Super excited !
Just had a great conversation with Jack ! Are you free to talk later tonight ?
Yeah , what time ?
Would be great to unwind permanent bans , except for spam accounts and those that explicitly advocate violence .
7pm CA time ? Or anytime after that .
7p works ! Talk soon
Calling back in a few mins

Pretty good summary
A host of ideas around this merit exploration - even lower friction ones than this .
I have a thought about this that could take out two birds with one stone
Btw , what's your email ?
Would you be able to do a q & a for employees next week virtually ? My travel is causing too long of a delay and only about 10-15 % of audience will be in person so we will be optimizing for virtual anyways . Would any of Wed / Thu 11a pacific next week work for you for a 45 min video q & a ? - else I can suggest other times . Trying to maximize attendance across global timezones .
Would love to hear more when we speak next - do you have any availability tomorrow ?
It would be great to get an update from the Twitter engineering team so that my suggestions are less dumb .
Yep - will set up a product + eng conversation ahead of q & a - they said , I expect most questions to not get into specific ideas / depth - but more around what you believe about the future of Twitter and why it matters , why you can personally , how to want to engage with us , what you hope to see change ... - but also some from people who are upset that you are involved and generally don't like you for some reason . As you said yesterday , goal is for people to just hear you speak directly instead of make assumptions about you from media stories . Would Thursday 11a pacific work next week for the q & a ?
11am PT on Wed works great
Exactly . Thurs 11 PT works .
Ok cool . So will confirm a convo Wed 11a PT with small eng and product leads . And the AMA on Thu 11a PT .
Also : my email to company about AMA leaked already + lots of leaks from internal slack messages : https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2022/04/07/musk-twitter employee - outcry / -I think there is a large silent majority that is excited about you bring on the board , so this isn't representative . Happy to talk about it - none of this is a surprise .
* awesome ( damn autocorrect ! )
As expected . Yeah , would be good to sync up . I can talk tomorrow night or anytime this weekend . I love our conversations !
I'm totally flexible after 530p pacific tomorrow - let me know what works . And yes this is expected - and I think a good thing to move us in a positive direction . Despite the turmoil internally - I think this is very helpful in moving the company forward .
I have a ton of ideas , but Imk if I'm pushing too hard . I just want Twitter to be maximum amazing .
I want to hear all the ideas - and I'll tell you which ones I'll make progress on vs. not . And why
And in this phase - just good to spend as much time with you . + have my Product and Eng team talk to you to ingest information on both sides .
I would like to understand the technical details of the Twitter codebase . This will help me calibrate the dumbness of my suggestions .
I wrote heavy duty software for 20 years
I used to be CTO and have been in our codebase for a long time .
So I can answer many many of your questions .
interface way better with engineers who are able to do hardcore programming than with program manager / MBA types of people .
Liked " I used to be CTO and have been in our codebase for a long time . "
in our next convo - treat me like an engineer instead of CEO and lets see where we get to . I'll know after that convo who might be the best engineer to connect you to .
Frankly , I hate doing mgmt stuff . I kinda don't think anyone should be the boss of anyone . But I love helping solve technical / product design problems .
You got it !
Look forward to speaking tomorrow . Do you like calendar invites sent to your email address ?

I am so sick of stuff like this
We should be catching this
You are free to tweet " is Twitter dying ? " or anything else about Twitter - but it's my responsibility to tell you that it's not helping me make Twitter better in the current context . Next time we speak , I'd like to you provide you perspective on the level of internal distraction right now and how it hurting our ability to do work . I hope the AMA will help people get to know you , to understand why you believe in Twitter , and to trust you - and I'd like the company to get to a place where we are more resilient and don't get distracted , but we aren't there right now .
What did you get done this week ?
I'm not joining the board . This is a waste of time .
Will make an offer to take Twitter private .
Can we talk ?
Can I call you later ?
I have the SpaceX exec staff meeting right now . Will be done in half an hour . Do you need to talk before then ?
No - can talk in 30 !

Good question ...
