Elon Musk is set to speak at a companywide Twitter meeting this week. It will be the first time he's addressed employees of the company since agreeing to buy the company in April.

Twitter confirmed the news to CNET via a spokesperson.

The meeting is set to take place on Thursday morning, and Musk himself will be taking questions from employees, some of whom have reportedly been troubled by the potential acquisition. The deal has also been hampered by issues with data on the amount of bots on the platform. 

Insider earlier broke the news of the upcoming meeting.

According to the Insider report, Twitter's CEO, Parag Agrawal, announced the meeting on Monday, and it will be moderated by Twitter's chief marketing officer, Leslie Berland. Twitter's employees have voiced concern about Musk's potential involvement on the social media platform. In an email, Agrawal reportedly stated the meeting would cover "topics and questions that have been raised over the past few weeks."

Musk, who already runs electric-car maker Tesla and rocket builder SpaceX, has committed to buying Twitter for $44 billion.
