Tech billionaire Elon Musk today pulled off a classic Elon Musk with a tweet. When a satire website shared a piece called, “Whistleblower fired from Facebook for constantly blowing whistle while everyone was trying to program”, the Tesla boss responded, saying his electric vehicle company too may have faced the same situation.

“I feel like this has happened at Tesla a few times,” Musk tweeted, replying the link of the satire piece shared by The Babylon Bee.


Musk’s fans on the social media platform were quick to appreciate his with retweets and ‘likes'. The tweet has collected over 400 retweets and over 12,000 'likes'.

“You have to respect the sense of humour on this guy. And I mean that sincerely,” a user said.

“Elon doing Elon,” another person tweeted.

Many users, however, were not amused by Musk's response.

 

Musk, who has over 61 million followers on Twitter, is one of the most popular entrepreneurs on the platform. He regularly put out his thoughts on anything that catches his eye.

On Monday, Tesla hit $1 trillion in market value after an announcement from rental car giant Hertz of an order to buy 1 lakh automatic vehicles from Tesla by the end of 2022. Shares of Elon Musk's company finished at $1,024.86, up 12.7 percent and topping $1 trillion for the first time.

"Wild $T1mes!" Musk, 50, said on Twitter.

Last week, he had confirmed that Tesla will send just one warning to drivers who do not use its advanced driver assist system responsibly before removing them from its FSD Beta program. FSD stands for full self-driving.
