Project Veritas has shared audio from inside Twitter’s headquarters that reportedly shows the chaos that occurred inside the social media company after Tesla CEO Elon Musk acquired the company for $44 billion.

Twitter board member Bret Taylor reportedly started the meeting by recognizing the emotional shock that he and others at the company experienced following Musk’s acquisition.

“I also just want to acknowledge all the emotions of today. It is an emotional day. I want to acknowledge it,” Taylor said. “By law, we are required to act in the best interest of our shareholders,” he said.

“Elon [Musk] made it clear in public that a large part of the reason he bought the platform was because of our moderation policies and disagreements in how we deal with health. This puts Twitter service and trust and safety, as well as anybody who cares about health on the platform in a very difficult position,” Chief Marketing Officer Leslie Berland can be heard saying in the video clip.

Twitter’s CEO Parag Agrawal can also be heard speaking about the news.

“I believe Twitter grows as a service allows for more people to use the product and have a better experience because we are able to make the conversation on Twitter, be safe, because we have built tools, processes for people to be able to feel safe and control their experiences,” Agrawal claimed. “I believe that there is a lot of work we have to do to continue making that better.”

“Sometimes that means more thoughtful moderation,” he added. “Sometimes that means making things simpler. Sometimes that means changing product incentives to be able to solve problems through products, sometimes ensure policies.”

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey stunned the Twitter world by going against the woke liberals that currently are in charge of the company.

Dorsey tweeted after the purchase of the company by Musk in support of the sale.

“I love Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing we have to a global consciousness,” he said to start a thread.

“The idea and service is all that matters to me, and I will do whatever it takes to protect both. Twitter as a company has always been my sole issue and my biggest regret. It has been owned by Wall Street and the ad model. Taking it back from Wall Street is the correct first step,” he said.

“In principle, I don’t believe anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company. Solving for the problem of it being a company however, Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness,” the former CEO said.

“Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is ‘maximally trusted and broadly inclusive’ is the right one. This is also @paraga’s goal, and why I chose him. Thank you both for getting the company out of an impossible situation. This is the right path…I believe it with all my heart,” he said.

“I’m so happy Twitter will continue to serve the public conversation. Around the world, and into the stars!” he said.

The sale is expected to close this year at $54.20 per share pending the approval of shareholders and regulatory approvals.

“Under the terms of the agreement, Twitter stockholders will receive $54.20 in cash for each share of Twitter common stock that they own upon closing of the proposed transaction,” the company said. “The purchase price represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s closing stock price on April 1, 2022, which was the last trading day before Mr. Musk disclosed his approximately 9% stake in Twitter.”

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spambots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
