No follow-up to this one yet, though.

Elon Musk is fiddling whereas Rome burns—or slightly shitposting as considered one of his corporations’ inventory worth plummets. Tesla’s worth has dropped precipitously over the previous week and month, with a number of information retailers forecasting the electrical car producer might have its worst year on document since going public in 2010—and presumably even the worst 12 months of any S&P 500 company.

Meanwhile, Musk has been energetic as ever on Twitter. “And you have tiny testicles!,” the world’s second richest individual and the proprietor of 5 completely different companies posted in response to random consumer @ElGrecoSF—who has about 500 followers on the platform, as of writing—after the account critiqued Musk’s anti-“woke” meme put up.

Nothing says “very stable genius,” or reliable CEO, to buyers fairly like tweeting out balls-themed insults to each 500-follower account that responds to your right-wing boomer memes. And sadly for the Twitter/Tesla proprietor, local weather activist Greta Thunberg has cornered the market on primo, genitalia-related clapbacks.

Other current Musk hits embrace a series of vaguely anti-vax, Covid conspiracy adjoining tweets, together with the latest Twitter Files installment. Then there’s quite a lot of posts understandably celebrating profitable SpaceX launches, plus, some anti-immigrant fearmongering, and no matter that is purported to imply:

In the background, Twitter continues to flail post-acquisition, because the billionaire makes a sequence of more and more complicated, rapid-fire policy and staffing selections. Musk has introduced in SpaceX staff to assist run the hollowed-out platform, a supply near the matter informed Gizmodo on Friday. And regardless of a modest ~3% rebound at the moment, Tesla inventory has fallen nearly 40% prior to now month.

All informed, Musk has tweeted, retweeted, or replied on Twitter greater than 50 occasions within the previous 24 hours.
