Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s potential takeover of Twitter loomed over the company’s annual investor meeting Wednesday, even as executives shut down questions about the deal.
Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal said the company is focused on business as usual, despite the negotiations with Musk. “We are working through the transaction process,” Agrawal said. “Our teams and I remain focused.”
Two right-wing groups who bought a handful of shares to make proposals to the board also called on Musk to support their positions. One of the groups accused Twitter of discriminating against men and White people in its hiring, and another alleged the company was too aggressive in how it moderated right-wing views on Twitter, something Musk himself has talked about.
Before the meeting, it was unclear if Musk would join himself. He did not.
