This is Bret Taylor . Let me know when you have a minute to speak today . Just got off with Parag and I know he is eager to speak with you today as well . Flexible all day
Later tonight would work - maybe 7pm ? I have a minor case of Covid , so am a little under the weather .
Sorry to hear it can knock you out . 7pm sounds great

Just spoke to Martha . Let me know when you have time to talk today or tomorrow . Sounds like you are about to get on a flight - flexible
Sounds good . I'm just about to take off from Berlin to Austin , but free to talk anytime tomorrow .
I am free all day . Text when you are available . Planning to take a hike with my wife and that is the only part where my reception may be spotty . Looking forward to speaking . And looking forward to working with you !

Hey are you available ?
Given the SEC filing , would like to speak asap to coordinate on communications . Call asap when you are back
Do you have five minutes ?

I am excited to work with you and grateful this worked out
Parag just called me and mentioned your text conversation . Can you talk ?
Please expect a take private offer
I saw the text thread . Do you have five minutes so I can understand the context ? I don't currently
Fixing twitter by chatting with Parag won't work
Drastic action is needed
This is hard to do as a public company , as purging fake users will make the numbers look terrible , so restructuring should be done as a private company .
This is Jack's opinion too .
Can you take 10 minutes to talk this through with me ? It has been about 24 hours since you joined the board . I get your point , but just want to understand about the sudden pivot and make sure I deeply understand your point of view and the path forward
I'm about to take off , but can talk tomorrow
Hey can you speak this evening ? I have seen your tweets and feel more urgency about understanding your path forward
Acknowledging your text with Parag yesterday that you are declining to join the board . This will be reflected in our 8 - K tomorrow . I've asked our team to share a draft with your family office today . I'm looking forward to speaking today .
It is better , in my opinion , to take Twitter private , restructure and return to the public markets once that is done . That was also Jack's view when I talked to him .
After several days of deliberation - this is obviously a matter of serious gravity - I have decided to move forward with taking Twitter private . I will send you an offer letter tonight , which will be public in the morning . Happy to connect you with my team if you have any questions . Thanks , Elon
Confirming I received your email . Also , please use [email protected] going forward , my personal email .
Elon , as you saw from our press release , the board is in receipt of your letter and is evaluating your proposal to determine the course of action that it believes is in the best interest of Twitter and all of its stockholders . We will be back in touch with you when we have completed that work . Bret
Elon , I am just checking in to reiterate that the board is seriously reviewing the proposal in your letter . We are working on a formal response as quickly as we can consistent with our fiduciary duties . Feel free to reach out anytime .

Would it be possible for you and me to talk this weekend ?
Or any group of people from the Twitter and my side
Yes , that would be great . I would suggest me and Sam Britton from Goldman on our side . Do you have time this afternoon / evening ?
Whatever time works for you and Sam is good for me
Can we call you in 15 mins ? 4:30 pm PT ( not sure what time zone you are in )
I can just call your mobile . Let me know if you prefer Zoom , conference call code , or something different
Mobile is fine
Liked " Mobile is fine "
Just tried calling - please call whenever you are available
Morgan Stanley needs to talk to me . I will call as soon as that's done .
No problem - here when you are ready

I'd like to convey some critical elements of the transition plan . Is there a good time for us to talk tonight ? Happy to have anyone from Twitter on the call .
My biggest concern is headcount and expense growth . Twitter has " 3X the head count per unit of revenue of other social media companies , which is very unhealthy in my view .
