“Work ethic expectations would be extreme, but much less than I demand of myself,” he wrote on Twitter.

It was the culmination of a series of tweets that attracted attention.

Musk revealed more about his plans for the platform on Friday.

“If Twitter acquisition completes, the company will be super focused on hardcore software engineering, design, infosec & server hardware,” he wrote on Twitter Friday morning, including a link to the Fortune article.

“I strongly believe that all managers in a technical area must be technically excellent. Managers in software must write great software or it’s like being a cavalry captain who can’t ride a horse!” he continued.

If he is successful in buying Twitter, Musk said he will reverse the permanent ban on ex-President Donald Trump.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Musk said that the ban “was morally wrong and flat out stupid.”

Earlier this month, Trump said he was “probably” not returning to Twitter if Musk restored his account.

Speaking to Sirius XM’s Americano Media, Trump said he “probably wouldn’t have any interest” in going back to the platform. He had around 90 million followers on the social media giant.

“You know, Twitter has become very boring. They’ve gotten rid of a lot of their good voices … a lot of their conservative voices,” Trump declared.

Although Musk is not officially in control of Twitter yet, the platform is getting a lot more attention in anticipation of a successful purchase deal – to the dismay of existing employees.

Since the Twitter board of directors accepted Musk’s buyout offer, employment interest has soared:

It’s still unclear how a Musk-run Twitter might impact the company’s ability to retain current staff and recruit new employees. The company presented the takeover as a potential threat to its staffing abilities in an SEC filing Monday.

But at least casual interest in open positions at the company has skyrocketed since the Tesla billionaire showed serious interest in taking over the company.

On Thursday, Daniel Zhao, a senior economist and data scientist at the job insights platform Glassdoor, tweeted that interest in job openings at the social media giant was up 263% between April 24 and April 30.

“Some trivia: With the announcement of Elon Musk’s Twitter acquisition offer being accepted, interest in Twitter jobs on Glassdoor rose 263 percent last week (4/24-4/30), compared to the March 2022 baseline,” Zhao posted on the platform.

He continued: “Well, the above data is made more relevant by today’s news. Say what you will about Elon, he does have a large fanbase of ppl excited to work for him. He’s much more likely to capitalize on that attraction as CEO than owner.”

Zhao explained to the news outlet that interest is measured by the number of average daily clicks on Twitter job posts compared to average daily clicks in March 2022 before news broke that Musk was interested in the social network.

Though the increase in clicks doesn’t always translate into jobs applied for, and it may simply reflect the current media attention he has gained, “the increase shows that people appear to be interested not just in the media story, but in work available at the company,” said the publication.

While Fortune noted that 59 percent of Americans approve of Musk’s takeover, a recent Harris poll also indicated that “some current Twitter staff worry that it will dramatically change the company’s culture, and overall direction.”

Musk’s changes include reducing censorship and more focus on freedom of speech, so this may also be true if he implements some of the changes he has announced.

According to CNBC’s David Fabor, Musk is “expected to serve as a temporary CEO of Twitter for a few months after he completes his $44 billion take over of the social media company.”

“The report comes as Musk has secured $7.1 billion in new funding for the deal from a group of more than a dozen investors, including Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, cryptocurrency exchange Binance, Fidelity, and Brookfield Asset Management. In addition, Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Alsaud has agreed to retain his 34,948,975 Twitter shares, worth approximately $1.9 billion,” according to Fox Business.

“As a result of the new commitments, Musk’s margin loan financing for the deal has been reduced from $12.5 billion to $6.25 billion, while his equity financing has increased from $21 billion to $27.25 billion. Musk’s filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission emphasizes that he is currently in discussions with existing shareholders of Twitter common stock, including co-founder Jack Dorsey, regarding ‘the possibility of contributing such shares of Common stock, at or immediately prior to the closing of the Merger, in order to retain an equity investment in Twitter following completion of the merger,’” the report stated.

Hopefully, the deal goes through as it would stymy Democrat’s strategy to silence conservatives on social media platforms.
