Twitter's "woke" employees are sweating bullets after it was announced that the company's new largest shareholder, Elon Musk, has been appointed to the board of directors.

In a Tuesday announcement, Twitter's anti-free speech CEO Parag Agrawal revealed that Musk had been appointed to the board after buying up a staggering 9.2% of the company.

Musk responded to the announcement by vowing "to make significant improvements to Twitter in coming months!"

Musk's surprise investment was revealed on Monday and saw Twitter's share prices soar by 25%.

By buying such a large chunk of Twitter, Musk has become its largest shareholder, giving him four times as much of the company as its own founder Jack Dorsey.

The tech entrepreneur has been openly critical of Twitter's censorship practices and has previously teased creating a pro-free speech rival.

The Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder said Tuesday that he plans to implement “significant improvements” to Twitter in the coming months.

Some employees of the leftist company were less than thrilled about the moves, as journalist Andy Ngo documented in a series of tweets.

A transgender Twitter employee said “I’m honestly kinda terrified” that Musk now has a degree of power over Twitter policies.

“A prominent transphobe buying a large stake in Twitter is not at all funny,” the data scientist said.

It’s unclear why Musk was given that label, but in 2020, he tweeted, Pronouns suck.”

Another employee said he feared for the “company culture” after Musk’s investment.

Others shared similar sentiments about Musk.

The technologist and entrepreneur has described himself as a “free speech absolutist.”

However, such a vision could complicate the company’s extensive censorship of conservatives.

Twitter shares surged considerably after Musk’s aggressive entry into the company on Monday.

Any change in Twitter policies ultimately might come through the hiring of new employees who support a free speech vision where users are allowed to criticize powerful institutions.

Musk is the wealthiest man in the world, according to Forbes.

The South African-born entrepreneur’s net worth is valued at more than $290 billion.
