As the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk has acknowledged having “too much” on his plate and spoken about the exhausting work schedule he faces.

The billionaire businessman discussed his workload during a session at the Business 20 conference in Indonesia on Monday. The official G-20 dialogue forum runs concurrently with the G-20 summit this week in Bali.
Musk stated that he manages Tesla’s global operations “with great difficulty” when questioned about it.
Musk stated, “I have too much work on my plate, that’s for sure.”I’m actually working as much as I can, seven days a week, from dawn to dusk. Sincerely, I would not recommend this.
Musk made the remarks shortly after he turned down John Legere, the former CEO of T-Mobile,’s offer to “run” Twitter.

On Nov. 13, Legere took to the social media platform and suggested that he run the website so that Musk could “stop managing a daily business, and ‘content moderation,’ and then support product/technology.”
“You paid a lot for Twitter, and I’m expensive too (p.s.)Please demonstrate how to tweet as a leader),” Legere wrote.

Musk replied with a straightforward “No,” adding later that “Twitter at its core is a software & servers company” and that “technology needs to evolve rapidly, which requires a technologist.”
In October, billionaire Elon Musk, who also owns the spaceflight company SpaceX and the neurotechnology startup Neuralink, closed on his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter.

Workers at Twitter Sue After Mass Layoffs Twitter announced in an email on November 3 that it would begin laying off 7,500 employees worldwide in an “effort to place Twitter on a healthy path” as the platform is losing over $4 million per day.

“Everyone [who] exited was offered 3 months of severance, which is 50 per cent more than legally required,” Musk stated on Twitter in support of the move.

However, since Musk laid off Twitter’s employees, the company has been sued by several employees for an alleged violation of federal law. Employees claim that they were not informed of the layoffs sufficiently and that they did not receive their severance benefits.

According to court documents by The Epoch Times, that includes two months’ worth of severance pay, compensation from the bonus plan, cash convertible company stock, and health insurance coverage. According to the documents, Twitter informed the former employees that they would now only receive one month’s base pay upon termination.

In October, The New York Times reported that Musk planned to fire some Twitter employees before Nov. 1, when they were scheduled to receive stock grants as part of their compensation. Musk denied the report.
After taking over the social media platform, Musk also fired Twitter’s CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and legal affairs and policy chief Vijaya Gadde.
After Musk outlawed remote work earlier this month, Twitter employees were also told to return to the office.
