Elon Musk is an important man. Important and controversial, because every time you open your mouth, the bread rises. Or bitcoin, which for that matter is the same on the Internet. However, now we will have to find out about his ideas elsewhere, as he will temporarily leave the social network Twitter, where he has been most present in recent years.
Musk is the main face behind Tesla, the multimillion-dollar electric car company, as well as other projects and companies such as SpaceX or The Boring Company. He is a controversial figure who draws praise and criticism alike, although the consensus in most internet forums is that he is a ‘real-world Iron Man’.
The reason for leaving Twitter is unknown. He has communicated it in a brief message that does not imply anything beyond the literal: that he leaves the social network for the moment. His account is still available and his past tweets can be accessed, but he doesn’t seem to be posting any
This departure from Twitter may be due to his recent comments on Clubhouse, a new trendy social network where, instead of writing or making videos, you can open public or private voice chats to talk with both strangers and followers.
At his Clubhouse premiere, Musk talked about the phenomenon of Reddit, GameStop and Wall Street, bitcoins, and also some of his plans for Tesla and his other companies. Perhaps talking too much about them is what has led to this temporary exit from Twitter: Musk is famous for going off the hook, making jokes out of place, or soaking up Internet humor that does not appeal to his shareholders.
Musk’s convening power on Twitter is undeniable, and the controversy and problems he has generated for his comments are a good example of this. In 2018, he joked about taking Tesla out of the stock market if it reached a price of $ 420 per share, something that was not going to happen at all because the figure is nothing more than a reference to a popular stoner joke on the Internet. However, the company’s investors had cold sweats for months from Musk’s attitude.
