Elon Musk sank into Twitter on Wednesday as the deal neared completion. With only a few days left to complete his Twitter acquisition and avoid a new court date, billionaire Elon Musk walked into the company’s San Francisco office on Wednesday holding what appeared to be a porcelain bathroom sink.

A company official confirmed to CNBC that Elon was there today and expressed concern about what would happen to people on foreign worker visas. Employees are trying to keep working despite all the attention being paid to the deal, and despite reports that Musk could gut the place with massive layoffs, according to this person, who declined to be named discussing internal matters. Some employees believe that if he buys it, they will be able to sell it.

According to an email shared by CNN and Bloomberg reporters, the office staff was given a brief heads-up about the visit.

According to the sender, Twitter Chief Marketing Officer Leslie Berland, Musk will be in the office this week “meeting with folks, walking the halls, and continuing to dive in on the important work you all do.” Say hello if you see him around SF!”

Employees would also hear directly from Musk on Friday, according to the email. A spokesperson for Twitter declined to comment on the report or Musk’s tweet.

Previously, Musk renamed himself “Chief Twit” on the social media platform, where he has over 110 million followers.

Musk has until 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday to complete his deal to buy Twitter or face going to trial again. When Musk attempted to back out of their $44 billion merger agreement, Twitter sued him, claiming that Twitter had not been forthcoming about spam and bots on its platform, which he claimed would have a material adverse effect. This has been denied by Twitter.

After Musk stated that he would be willing to buy Twitter, after all, a Delaware Chancery Court judge set the Friday deadline. Twitter, not believing Musk, wanted the court to remain involved.
