From chocolate milk reviews to feuding with Bill Gates – here’s five of Elon Musk’s top tweets since bidding on TwitterTyler BaumTechnology and Science – latest news | The Sun

ELON Musk has sent dozens of tweets since making an unsolicited offer to buy Twitter – some whimsical, some serious and some downright mean.

The richest man in the world loves to tweet so much that he bought the platform.

Musk has sent nearly 18,000 tweets since joining Twitter in 2009

Musk’s $44billion dollar bid to buy Twitter is not finalized.

He’s taking on investing partners, reducing the amount of cash he has to put up and taking a portion of his Tesla stock out of the equation.

While the public and press muse about what changes he’ll bring to the platform, Musk is tweeting an array of content directly to his 92million followers.

The prince of memes

Musk shared a criticism of the media in general using the “big brain” meme formatTwitter

Musk once called himself “aspirationally funny” – but some outlets are sure to feel stung by this criticism.

Since bidding on Twitter, Musk has pledged to roll back the company’s moderation policies and see to a new era of news consumption.

If the deal goes through, Musk will certainly have a role in the culture war over “fake news”.

Musk has said he wants to see political neutrality on TwitterTwitter

Musk’s political position is often described as libertarian – a theory of governmental non-interventionism.

But a New York Times piece focused on his political tendencies highlights “how paradoxical and random his politics can be.”

He’s been critical COVID lockdowns and a First Amendment traditionalist, both are examples of right-wing red meat.

Meanwhile, one of Tesla’s main aims is to produce an electric vehicle and end our reliance on fossil fuels – here we see a major agenda overlap with the progressive Green New Deal.

Anonymous, vigilante hacker group, didn’t appreciate Musk’s use of the phrase “liberal bias” to describe Twitter and published a rebuttal.

Dunking on Bill Gates

Gates was active on Twitter the day of this post but did not replyTwitter

On April 22, Musk took a shot at Bill Gates – an aggressive one.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO confirmed on Twitter that he’s angry with Gates for apparently betting that the price of Tesla stock would fall.

Leaked text messages show the two multi-billionaires duking it out in private – this tweet shows their beef in public.

Flirting with death
