  • “This is false,” Musk responded to a tweet by ProPublica’s deputy managing editor, Eric Umansky, highlighting the New York Times report.
  • “The layoffs at Twitter would occur before a Nov. 1 date when employees were scheduled to receive stock grants as compensation. Such grants typically represent a significant portion of employees’ pay.”
