Musk continued, ``When Ella Irwin, who now runs TSC, took over in early 2022, there were very few members working on child safety. I tried to reach out to the CEO and former CFO Ned Segal, but they didn't relocate, so I made this a top priority,' he said. I am explaining the purpose.

In addition, he asked the approximately 70 remaining members of TSC, ``Unless Mr. Musk shows a compromise, TSC members will not be able to continue with one-sided dialogue. Is it really worth spending their time? Please, you will have to judge,' he commented.
