Elon Musk is one of the richest and most gifted guys on this planet. But he is also a strange animal and currently plans to acquire his favorite communication channel Twitter. According to WSJ, some employees of SpaceX wrote a letter raising concerns and frustration over their CEO’s recent public Twitter statements and behavior, describing them as a source of embarrassment and distraction.
In the letter, the employees urged the management at Space Exploration Technologies Corp. to publicly address and condemn Musk’s “harmful Twitter behavior” to separate the company from his personal brand. “As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX—every Tweet that Elon sends is a de facto public statement by the company,” the letter said.
WSJ could not determine how many employees signed the letter. SpaceX has around 12,000 employees, Musk said in a recent interview.
