Elon Musk’s time atop Twitter Inc. has been one of turbulence, with mass firings followed by fired workers being asked back, accounts suspended and accounts restored, experiments with paid membership, and celebrities quitting the social network. One person who isn’t giving up on its billionaire owner: the CEO of Morgan Stanley.

“I wouldn’t bet against Elon Musk,” James Gorman said Thursday at a Reuters conference in New York, calling Twitter “a great company” and Musk “an extraordinary executive,” and talking up a visit he made to a Tesla Inc. auto plant in the Los Angeles area.
