Musk authorizes 50 Tesla employees to work at Twitter

Along with 50 employees from Tesla who are mostly from the Autopilot team, others include, two from the Boring Company and one from Neuralink.

Elon Musk, now the sole director and CEO of Twitter, has authorized employees from other companies that he owns to work at the social media giant. These include 50 employees from Tesla, mainly from its Autopilot team, two from Boring Company, and one from Neuralink.

The employees from other companies that Musk has involved into Twitter include those that he ‘trusts’, like Tesla’s senior director of software engineering Maha Virduhagiri, director of software development Ashok Elluswamy, director of Autopilot/TeslaBot engineering Milan Kovac, and others.

Musk completed the $44 billion acquisition of social media giant Twitter on October 28. With his takeover, the billionaire has added the Twitter to the list of firms he heads or has co-founded.

Shortly after taking over, Musk fired the company’s top bosses – CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and the legal and policy head, Vijaya Gadde and dissolved the company’s board of directors.

He has now announced that Twitter will charge $8 per month for the blue verification tick that authenticates a Twitter account. Musk changed the “current lords and peasants system” for who does or does not have a blue checkmark.

“Power to the people! Blue for USD 8 per month,” he had tweeted, adding that the price is adjusted by country proportionate to purchasing power parity. Twitter already has a subscription service called Twitter Blue, which launched in June last year and offers access to features such as an option to edit tweets.
