Is Elon Musk closing troublesome Twitter account or teasing?

Elon Musk Changes Twitter Name to Daddy DotCom Tweets ‘Deleted My Twitter Account

Elon Musk Changes Twitter Name to Daddy DotCom Tweets ‘Deleted My Twitter Account

In what appears to be the latest and most freakish move so far, Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and co-founder of Tesla - or someone acting on his behalf or pretending to be him - has tweeted that he has "deleted his Twitter account".

Musk has previously been accused by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for disclosing misleading corporate information about Tesla on Twitter. He even said, "I wish people would stop crediting artists on twitter when any fool can find out who the artist was in seconds". Rather than apologise, add a credit in a reply or repost the art with a credit attached, he followed up with "always credit everyone", "no one should be credited with anything ever" and the doozy below, then deleted all of them, including the original image tweet.

When pushed to elaborate, the CEO claimed that giving artists their proper dues is "destroying the medium".

China: Debate on Hong Kong's Extradition Bill Is Postponed Again
Protests raging in Hong Kong are threatening to become yet another irritant in Canada's fraught relationship with China. They have no confidence in the Chinese legal system and are concerned how this may affect the Hong Kong legal system.

After midnight on Monday, Musk tweeted, "Just deleted my Twitter account".

The person who created the artwork, Meli Megali, a self-described 2-D artist and game designer, later posted a series of tweets of her own, responding to Musk and the many users who'd reached out to her in support. In actuality, Elon Musk's Twitter is still online, though he hasn't posted anything on it since making that tweet.

But Mr Musk sees the mention of Mr Eberhard as a point of aggravation. In the meantime, fans can still reminisce over some of his classic gaming tweets, like when he joked about deleting Fortnite from existence.
