1. Bringing back Trump
It’s also been predicted several banned accounts, like former President Donald Trump’s, will be restored once Musk has control of Twitter. But Trump has told Fox News he does not plan to return to Twitter even if Musk reinstates his account.
2 . Elon the comedic genius
Musk faced a court-ordered deadline of October 28 to either close on his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter or go to trial against the company, but he started making moves the day before, firing Twitter’s top executives. But first, he let the world know he had arrived at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters on October 26, by tweeting a video of himself walking into the Twitter lobby holding a bathroom sink, apparently just to make a pun. “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” Musk said.
3 . After all, money doesn’t grow on trees
“Okay, about charging $8 a month!” This was a much-debated concern on Twitter. Musk has tweeted repeatedly over the past few days about the upcoming $8-per-month Twitter Blue package, which will apparently be the only way for verified users to retain their blue check marks. It appears that he spontaneously came up with the price early Tuesday morning during an interaction with horror fiction writer Stephen King, who criticize an earlier reported $20-per-month price tag, saying, “they should pay me” Musk responded:
“We need to pay the bills somehow! Twitter cannot rely entirely on advertisers. How about $8?”
4 . Mama’s boy
The tweet making the 4th place in this article is a picture he posted of himself and his mother in Halloween costumes. This tweet just got under 1.1 million interactions.
5 . Another path of income
“If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me if Trump is coming back on this platform, Twitter would be minting money!” Almost 50% of Twitter users want Donald Trump back while others are against it causing the twitter interactions of this tweet went skyrocket.
6 . New changes to Twitter
Musk’s Friday afternoon message was the second-most popular tweet of the week with just about 2.7 million interactions. Of course, “comedy” is something Musk essentially cannot restrict given that he is the comedic genius on Twitter.
7. Fly birdie fly
Starting off with, “The bird is freed.” – tweeted Elon at roughly the time he formally took control of the company on a Thursday. Post buying of Twitter, this was the top tweet of the week! The tweet has attracted more than 2.9 million interactions, largely through nearly 2.5 million likes.
8 . A hole-in-one!
After the whole “fiesta” over buying Twitter, Musk’s newfound interest is ‘Burnt Hair’. The perfume is produced by Elon’s The Boring Company. Based on the reviews of consumers who have got their hands on Musk’s musk and the few tweets the billionaire has shared about the product, it seems like Burnt Hair smells like the combination of charcoal, singed flesh, and barbecue.
9 . Open Happiness
Another of Musk’s top badass tweets was playoff news of the massive deal to buy Twitter, with Musk joking: “Next I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in”. Wednesday’s tweet from Musk has been retweeted or quote tweeted more than 850,000 times, and collected nearly 4.7 million likes as of Friday, making it the second most-liked tweet of all time! behind only the announcement of actor Chadwick Boseman’s death posted from Boseman’s account.
10 . Who likes to get spied on? No one
A lot of Twitter users seem to agree with Elon on this as proven by the soaring number of likes and re-tweets winning this tweet a place in the top-most tweets. Unlike most of the other controversial tweets he has made in the past this statement is actually something that everyone can agree on. Well, no one likes to have their messages hacked or spied on, right?
11. Elon Musk is an ordinary man
The entrepreneurial tycoon Elon Musk can invent, create or take over anything, not only on this earth but also in space, but, there is one thing he cannot do – fix McDonald’s ice cream machine. The universally broken McDonald’s ice cream machine is apparently a matter very close to the heart of the people as apparent by this interaction.
12 . Twitter is about to be happening
Although Twitter is relatively a much more formal and official platform compared to other social media such as Facebook or Instagram, Musk has long broken this boundary with his rather funky personality and he apparently continues to do so but now he wants everyone in on the fun!
13 . Twittercism
By “free speech”, Musk goes on to elaborate his tweet in a reply tweet, “I simply mean that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask the government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.” He has taken a measure to clear out his statement as most of the Twitter users are expressing their various viewpoints regarding the subject mounting in the comment section.
14 . All for free speech
His next most-popular tweet, saying he hopes his “worst critics remain on Twitter because that is what free speech means,” has more than 3.3 million likes since it was published Monday, and has managed to get the seventh place among the most-liked tweets ever. Of course, Twitter will be boring without some chaos, wouldn’t it?
15 . Bill Gates? pregnant?
Well, Bill Gates kind of invented computers, and also comparing how much of Bill’s billions has spent helping make the world a better place compared to Elon, it probably wouldn’t have hurt him to go a bit softer with his bullying. That’s probably a much better gauge of a person’s worth.
During his super busy daily schedule, Elon somehow manages to squeeze in the daily dose of Twitter drama for his fans. Unlike most other Entrepreneurs who usually maintain a low profile in terms of their personal comments, Elon is different in how he handles his peer interactions and public interactions.
