According to an internal email, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will address Twitter staff during a company-wide meeting on Thursday.
Wednesday is the deadline for Twitter employees to submit questions for the celebrity entrepreneur, according to an email from Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal seen by Insider.
