I am cautiously optimistic that things will work out well,” Musk further posted.Despite the hashtag #RIP Twitter that started to trend on social media amid an earlier exodus of some brands over the uncertain future of the company, Musk had said that “Twitter is ALIVE”.After firing about two-thirds of the micro-blogging platform’s 7,500 employees, the Twitter CEO has said the company is done with layoffs and is hiring again.According to Musk, there are “no plans” to have the company’s headquarters in Texas, as he did with Tesla, although it would make sense to have “dual-headquartered” offices in Texas and California.”If we want to move the headquarters to Texas I think it would play into the idea that Twitter has gone from being left-wing to right-wing, which is not the case,” Musk told employees during a recent meeting.”This is not a right-wing takeover of Twitter. It is a moderate-wing takeover of Twitter,” he added.
