In an email to Twitter staff, he warned against sharing detailed information with the media. Musk also asked employees to sign a pledge to confirm that they understood the terms of the agreement. He said such actions could amount to a clear violation of the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that employees signed when they joined Twitter.
