Elon Musk has posted a poll on Twitter asking users to vote on whether former US President Donald Trump, who was banned from the social media site by his previous owner, should be reinstated.
The Twitter boss also tweeted: “Vox Populi, Vox Dei” – a Latin phrase that means “the voice of the people is the voice of God”.
The billionaire Tesla owner asked the rest of the software code-writing staff to report to the 10th floor of the San Francisco office at 2 p.m. local time, according to an email seen by Reuters.
“If possible, I would appreciate it if you could fly to San Francisco to attend in person,” Mr. Musk was quoted as saying in the email, adding that he would be at the company’s headquarters until midnight and return Saturday morning.
On Friday, hundreds of Twitter employees were estimated to have decided to leave the company after Mr. Musk’s Thursday deadline, with employees agreeing to longer, more intense work patterns or resigning.
The exodus added to the rapid change and chaos of Mr. Musk’s first three weeks as Twitter owner, during which time the company’s workforce has more than halved to about 3,700 in layoffs and other departures.
