On the day Elon Musk took ownership of Twitter, the tech billionaire took his 2-year-old son X AE A-Xii to intense conversations at the company’s headquarters in San Francisco, US.
The Washington Post reported that Mr. Musk and his team met with Trust and Safety Officer Yoel Roth in a conference room on Oct. 27 to outline his plans for the future of the site. During the meeting, toys were scattered around the second-floor conference room, known as the war room, and Mr. Musk’s 2-year-old X AE A-Xii was running around.
X AE A-Xii may have been at Twitter headquarters to attend the office Halloween party that day, where some employees brought their children. He was born in 2020 and is Elon Musk’s first child with Canadian musician Grimes. The couple is co-parenting their children after separating in September 2021.

Meanwhile, returning to the ongoing Twitter chaos, Mr. Musk fired some of Twitter’s top executives last month, immediately after acquiring the platform, including chief legal officer Vijay Gadde, CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal. According to the AfterMr Gadde’s resignation meant that Mr Roth was suddenly the top executive in the platform’s trust and security division.
On October 27, Musk was joined by his inner circle at Twitter headquarters. The “Chief Twit” and his new team used a large conference room on the second floor called the War Room to discuss topics from firings to site engineering.
The After reported that the meeting between Mr. Musk and Mr. Roth, where they discussed content moderation, including issues related to the Brazilian general election, took place shortly after Mr. Gadde was fired.
Two weeks later, Mr. Roth also quit. He reportedly clashed with Mr Musk over, among other things, allowing controversial Christian news outlet The Babylon Bee and conspiracy theorist Jordan Peterson to return to Twitter.
