During a surprise visit to Twitter‘s San Francisco headquarter on Wednesday ahead of his expected acquisition of the company, billionaire Elon Musk brought an actual sink.
Musk posted a video of himself laughing while lugging the sink into the lobby, just two days before a court-ordered deadline to complete a $44 billion deal to buy Twitter or face a trial. Earlier in the day, Tesla CEO Elon Musk changed his Twitter handle bio to “Chief Twit.”
“Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” along with the nine-second video, Musk tweeted.
Twitter chief marketing officer Leslie Berland revealed in a memo to employees that Musk would be on-site at the company’s headquarters throughout the week. Musk is also expected to speak to employees in person on Friday.
According to Bloomberg, Berland wrote in the memo, “Elon is in the SF office this week meeting with folks, walking the halls, and continuing to dive in on the important work you all do.” “For everyone else, this is just the beginning of many meetings and conversations with Elon, and you’ll all hear directly from him on Friday.”
It’s unclear why Musk arrived at Tesla’s headquarters with a sink; however, he followed up the introductory tweet with another message that read, “Meeting a lot of cool people at Twitter today!”
