Elon Musk continues to provoke his critics

 The American billionaire, Elon Musk, who now owns Twitter after recently purchasing it, continues to provoke his critics. The British newspaper The Times said that one of Musks’ recent tweets – which included a picture of his bedside table with two pistols on it – has caused controversy over whether he deliberately provokes liberals on the Twitter platform.

A British newspaper reported on Tuesday that, upon closer examination, one of the two pistols appeared to be an imitation model without a trigger from a video game, and the other was an exact copy of George Washington’s classic flintlock pistol.

In his tweet, Elon Musk introduced himself as “Mesquite.. Elon Mesquite,” with the latter word being a type of firearm.

Since he bought the platform for $44 billion in October, the world’s richest man has been posting provocative tweets.

Last week, he confirmed that he would support the nomination of Ron DeSantis for President of the United States. He added that he want somebody who is “reasonable and moderate” in these modern times.

President Biden has pledged to push for more limitations on gun ownership now that Democrats have complete control over Congress. Semi-automatic weapons should not be available for purchase, he said.

While Musk’s bedside table was decorated with what appeared to be a Tibetan Buddhist meditation amulet, cans of decaffeinated and sugar-free soda, and a collection of books in a box, including the US Constitution.

Beforehand, Elon Musk had said that the number of people registering as new users on the social networking platform had reached an “ever high.” However, he now faced a mass loss of advertisers and users leaving for other platforms. The reasoning behind this estranged flight was because of user complaints about checking accounts and hate speech.

On Saturday evening, November 26, Musk tweeted that the average number of subscribers reached more than two million per day during the seven days ending on November 16. This is an increase of 66% compared to the same week in 2021.

Elon Musk announced that the average amount of time users spend active on the platform is at a record high, averaging nearly 8 billion minutes per day over the past seven days. This figure is up 30% compared to last year’s numbers.

Musk, who owns rocket business SpaceX, artificial intelligence startup Neuralink, and The Boring Company as well said that purchasing Twitter would help him to reach his goal of creating an app referred to as “X” or the “everything app”.
