Project Veritas has published the recording of another internal Twitter all-hands meeting wherein Elon Musk addressed thousands of employees for the first time since news broke of his plans to acquire the company.
Here are some of the highlights from today’s video:
- “I think it’s essential to have free speech,” Musk said on the call after describing his affinity for Twitter. He added that “multiple opinions” should exist on Twitter to “make sure that we’re not sort of driving a narrative.”
- On the call, Musk was asked about his political leanings, his plans for layoffs and the direction of the company.
- Musk also discussed his vision for Twitter saying that traditional news media is “negative” and that they “almost never” get it right. He added that bots, spam and multi-account users must be contained. “I think an important goal for Twitter would be to try to include as, as much of the country, as much of the world as possible,” Musk added.
- Musk reacted to the news of Project Veritas publishing the meeting on Twitter, posting “Exactly.”

Musk described his political views as “moderate,” noting that he traditionally has voted Democrat but voted Republican for the first time in his life this week — voting for Congressional Candidate, Mayra Flores, in Texas.
He said he believes most of the world favors moderate politics, but that the far left and right should be able to voice their frustrations on Twitter.
At one point, Musk was asked if he would be taking over CEO duties of the company. Musk’s answer was that he “wants to make sure the product evolves rapidly.”
