According to the story, Musk said, "In terms of crucial hiring, I would say individuals who are fantastic at creating software are the greatest priority." Although it would make sense to have "dual-headquartered" offices in Texas and California, the CEO claims that there are "no intentions" to locate the business's headquarters there, as he did with Tesla.

Musk warned staff that moving the company's headquarters to Texas "would play into the impression that Twitter has gone from being a left-wing to a right-wing company, which is not the truth."
