Elon Musk spoke this weekend at the Sun Valley conference about a variety of topics. However, his Twitter deal was not one of them.
During an interview with Sam Altman, CEO of the artificial Intelligence company OpenAI Musk co-founded, Tesla CEO notably avoided discussing his $44 billion deal for the social media company Reuters reported, citing only two people.
One source said that Musk devoted the majority of his remarks to topics such as building a society on Mars, and his belief in the importance of increasing birth rates on Earth.
Both of these topics are well-known to Musk. Musk recently tweeted “Doing my best for the underpopulation crisis” after Insider reported he had previously unidentified twins with Shivon Zilis in November. Shivon Zilis is a top executive at Neuralink (one of his companies). He said that he plans to significantly increase the childcare benefits at his companies. “
Musk’s lawyers informed the US Securities Exchange Commission on Friday that he wanted to cancel his $44 billion deal with Twitter.
In the days leading to the annual conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, top executives from media and finance gathered for a few days to discuss the Twitter deal.
