Elon Musk has threatened to sue the “few” Twitter employees who continue to leak confidential information to the media, according to reports.

Platformer’s Zoë Schiffer got a copy of Saturday email but did not upload the document because “Twitter is doing everything it can to catch the sources,” she tweeted.

According to Schiffer’s tweets, Musk wrote in the email, “As evidenced by numerous detailed leaks of confidential information on Twitter, a few individuals within our company continue to act in a manner contrary to the interests of the company and in violation of their NDA.”

He added: “This will only be said once: if you clearly and willfully violate the NDA you signed when you joined, you accept liability to the fullest extent of the law and Twitter will immediately seek damages. -interests.”

Staff had until 5 p.m. PT Saturday to sign a pledge, according to the email.

A Twitter source also told Insider that Musk sent the email to Twitter staff.

A twitter user quickly joked, “I love that the email asking staff members not to release information has been leaked.”

The company is facing four lawsuits filed by former employees, accusing it of various unfair practices following their dismissals.

Four lawsuit plaintiffs represented by Shannon Liss-Riordan spoke at a press conference in San Francisco on Thursday. He came to court over a lawsuit brought by five former employees who alleged Twitter failed to provide adequate notice before its mass layoffs.

Many of them expressed their support for former colleagues with families or those who did not feel comfortable showing up to the event.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Insider.
