Elon Musk’s son ran around on Twitter amid key meetings: report

Elon Musk’s two-year-old son ran around Twitter headquarters playing with toys as Musk held key meetings shortly after taking over the company earlier this fall, according to a report.

The Washington Post reported that Musk brought his son, named X AE A-Xii, into a second-floor meeting room at the San Francisco office on Oct. 27 to meet with Twitter’s Trust and Safety team.

During the meeting in what staff called the “war room,” children’s toys were strewn across the conference room floor while Musk’s son ran around playing with them, according to the report.

X AE A-Xii is Musk’s first child with Canadian musician Grimes; the two have been together with their son since he was born in 2020. According to the Washington Post, Musk likely brought his son to Twitter’s Halloween party the day before the meeting, where many employees brought their children.

Musk called the Oct. 27 meeting to discuss reversing bans on controversial accounts and to map out his new, less strict approach to Twitter’s content moderation.

During the meeting, Twitter’s then-trust and security officer Yoel Roth expressed concern about how Musk’s new approach to layoffs and looser moderation could affect Brazil’s general election.

Roth had just been thrust into Twitter’s biggest trust and security role after Musk fired several executives above him.

Roth resigned two weeks later after a feud with Musk over the billionaire’s decision to lift the ban on controversial satirical news outlet The Babylon Bee, as well as conspiracy theorist Jordan Peterson.
