On the day Elon Musk took ownership of Twitter, the tech billionaire brought his two-year-old son X AE A-Xii with him to an intensive meeting at the company’s headquarters in San Francisco, USA.
The Washington Post announced that on October 27, Mr. Musk and his team met with Chief Trust and Security Officer Yoel Roth in a conference room to outline their plans for the future of the Web. During the meeting, toys were strewn around the second-floor conference room, dubbed 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 that day to attend an office Halloween party where some employees brought their children. Born in 2020, he is Elon Musk’s first child with Canadian musician Grimes. The pair raised their children together after splitting in September 2021.

Meanwhile, returning to Twitter’s ongoing chaos, last month, immediately after taking over the platform, Mr. Musk fired some of Twitter’s top executives, including chief legal officer Vijay Gadde, CEO Parag Agrawal and chief financial officer Ned Segal. According to PostMr. Gadde’s termination meant that Mr. Roth was suddenly the top executive in the platform’s trust and security department.
On October 27, Mr. Musk was joined by his inner circle at Twitter headquarters. “Chief Twit” and his new team used a large conference room on the second floor, called the war room, to discuss topics ranging from layoffs to engineering.
The Post said a meeting between Mr. Musk and Mr. Roth to discuss content moderation, including issues related to Brazil’s general election, took place shortly after Mr. Gadde was fired.
Two weeks later, Mr. Roth also left. He reportedly clashed with Mr Musk over issues including allowing controversial Christian news channel The Babylon Bee and conspiracy theorist Jordan Peterson to return to Twitter.
