Elon Musk again unsuccessfully joked: we have collected several examples of the strange humor of a billionaire
Users often joke that billionaire Elon Musk has a sense of humor like a child. He can call a subordinate a donkey if he says something wrong, or laugh at elementary school level jokes. This time, he closed the w in the word Twitter at the office of the social network. This is how Titter was born, reports MC.
Last week, San Francisco residents noticed that the Twitter office building was missing letters. The photo shows that someone closed the “w” and so the name of the social network sounded a little different - Titter (which translates from English as “giggle” or, given the style of Musk’s jokes, sounds a bit like the word “chest”). But not all users appreciated the height of the idea.

Some added that it could only be funny to a 12-year-old.
“Our landlord at our San Francisco headquarters said we were legally required to keep the word Twitter and couldn't remove the w, so we painted it with a background color. Problem solved!" Musk wrote.
Previously, the businessman has already joked about this topic. For example, he wrote about the creation of a new university called "Texas Institute of Technology and Science", whose abbreviation, of course, would be "TITS" ("chest").
After Elon bought Twitter, the social network began to surprise with incomprehensible innovations and get into scandals. Recently, the logo was changed on the platform and users could see not a blue bird, but a Shiba Inu dog. By the way, this helped the trader earn $1 million in 30 minutes. Also, the social network began to respond to letters from the press with the eloquent “turd” emoticon.
And in 2018, Musk tweeted on April 1st: “Despite intense fundraising efforts, including the latest massive Easter egg sale, we are sad to announce that Tesla is completely bankrupt.” Investors did not appreciate the joke, and on the same day, Tesla shares collapsed by 5,1%, causing serious damage to the company. Finam. This all happened against the backdrop of real problems for the company, which lost $2018 billion in capitalization in March 14,65 due to investor fears that Tesla did not have enough cash. Musk himself then lost $ 3 billion of his personal fortune.

Elon Musk is known for actively promoting not only bitcoin, but also a strange meme-crypt, which no one really knew about before him. For example, in July 2020, after celebrity Twitter accounts were hacked, the billionaire was asked when he would return the bitcoins they owe to users. To this question, Musk replied: “Sorry, I only sell Doge!”. After that, he published a picture with this crypto meme, which said that the “Dogecoin standard” is being established over the global financial system.” By the way, the symbol of Dogecoin is a funny dog from memes, so this cryptocurrency was originally created as a joke. However, after that famous tweet by Musk, its value skyrocketed by 20%.
Amid Musk's announcement to buy Twitter in 2022, there have been speculations about which companies the billionaire might acquire next.

Dialogue between Elon and Joe:
Musk: "It's a joint. Or is it a cigar?
Rogan: “Marijuana with tobacco. Have you ever tried it?"
Musk: "Yeah, I think I tried it once."
Rogan: "Probably you won't smoke because of the shareholders."
Musk: "It's legal, right?"
Rogan: "Totally legal."

Rogan: Is that a problem? It's legal!"

You can recall another quirk of a billionaire - giving strange names to his children. At the end of 2021, Elon Musk and singer Grimes had a baby girl, reports Forbes. The girl was carried by a surrogate mother, she received the name Exa Dark Sideræl - Y for short ". The latter name also alludes to Grimes' favorite character from the Lord of the Rings book series, the elven princess Galadriel, who "decided to renounce the ring."
A year earlier, the couple had a son named X Æ A-XII. Grimes tweeted that the name has several parts:
- X is a mathematical variable, an unknown number;
- Æ is the "elvish" spelling of the combination of letters Ai. According to Grimes, this means love and / or artificial intelligence (Artificial Intelligence);
- The A-12 is the forerunner of the Lockheed SR-71 reconnaissance aircraft, Grimes and Musk's favorite aircraft. “No weapons, no protection, just speed. Good in battle, but harmless, ”Grimes explained;

Musk confirmed Grimes' interpretation, but clarified the model of the aircraft: the singer wrote SR-17 by mistake instead of SR-71. “I am recovering from surgery and barely alive, so forgive my typos. But damn it, it had to be heartfelt,” Grimes told him. Neither the mother nor the father specified how to pronounce the name of the child correctly.
