Twitter’s Top Lawyer Cries During Meeting About Musk Takeover

One of Twitter’s top lawyers reportedly cried during a virtual meeting to discuss the company’s new ownership.

Twitter lawyer Vijaya Gadde “cried during the meeting as she expressed concerns about how the company could change, according to three people familiar with the meeting,” reported Politico.

Gadde claimed there are “significant uncertainties” about how Twitter will change and what it might look like under Musk’s ownership.

She also discussed how proud she is of her team and their accomplishments, and encouraged employees to keep doing well at the company.

Gadde has been with Twitter since 2011 and is the “key executive charged with overseeing Twitter’s trust and safety, legal and public policy functions,” according to Politico.

One person familiar with the situation reported that Gadde had a lead role in negotiating the deal between Twitter and Musk.

She was also largely involved in the decisions to remove all political advertising and former President Donald Trump from the platform.

The news of Musk’s ownership has made many Twitter employees uneasy.

“I think everyone at Twitter, regardless of how they feel about the news, is feeling reflective and emotional,” said one employee. “We’ve gone through a lot in the past two years and I think it’s generally instigated a lot of reflection. I think this was more of an acknowledgment of the uncertainty everyone is feeling right now”.

Twitter announced Monday that they have agreed to Musk acquiring the platform for $44 billion.
