Elon Musk’s provocative comments will not stop, the owner of Tesla and SpaceX does not care about losing money, what matters to him is that the whole world knows his opinion.
Twitter has become Elon Musk’s playground. To date, the South African tycoon has managed to make the social network perform worse, advertisers decide to abandon it and users have a questionable experience. But none of this matters to him, and it is that Elon Musk wants Twitter to express his opinions.
The comments that Elon Musk launches on Twitter are controversial and cost him money. Over the last few months we have seen how Tesla or Twitter itself lost money because Elon Musk commented something inappropriate on the social network. The best or worst thing about this is that the founder of Tesla and SpaceX does not care.
Yes, the privilege of having billions of dollars means that Elon Musk does not have to worry about his comments on the social network that, unfortunately, he owns. How do we know this? It was Elon Musk himself who commented on it in an interview on CNBC.
Elon Musk assured journalist David Farmer that you will continue to say whatever you feel like saying, even if it costs you money. The South African tycoon is blunt and does not care about the well-being of his companies at all, since it would not be the first time that one of his opinions has cost Tesla or SpaceX a drop in the stock market.
Twitter is Elon Musk’s playground and his hit-and-run comments cost him thousands of dollars
The controversy is served and Elon Musk is the main course. The businessman who is now focused on electric mobility and getting SpaceX to fulfill all the space travel promises made to the public does not escape any type of controversy on Twitter. He doesn’t care if it’s a school shooting or a massacre, he always has an opinion.
These opinions tend to feed a specific sector of the population and that, unfortunately, have become the protectors of the billionaire. During the interview he makes it clear that what Twitter advertisers think of his opinions and whether they decide not to launch campaigns on the social network is simply a lesser evil.
Logically the situation is not as good or as carefree as Elon Musk himself makes it seem. Twitter is no longer one of the most popular social networks of the moment and users are looking for more and more alternatives to which to move, in addition to the fact that the team behind the social network is at a minimum due to massive layoffs.
