The two renowned billionaires and geniuses Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have been interacting on Twitter a lot lately. Not the interaction the world once hoped for between the two miraculous minds, but okay. After agreeing to the infamous Elon Musk vs Mark Zuckerberg cage fight at the Roman Colosseum, things have only escalated further.
Meta Launched Threads, Musk Responded
After Meta’s Threads gained popularity, Elon Musk, the executive chairman of Twitter, said in a social media post that Meta, a text-based social network similar to Twitter, is “cheating” over the launch of Threads.
Threads, a brand-new text-based social network from Meta, went live in 100 nations on July 5. Days after Twitter’s rate limit fiasco, the app was released when the social media company momentarily restricted the number of posts users could read.
Musk’s Parody Account
This parody account of Elon Musk has been known for tweeting hilariously impersonating Musk in tune with the moves the real Elon Musk makes.
In one of the latest tweets, the parody account suggests that the victor of the fight should acquire 24 hour control of the opponent’s social networking site. For instance, if Musk wins, he will have custody of Meta for one day. In a similar vein, Zuckerberg would rule Twitter for a day if he had won.
Recently, Musk and Zuckerberg have been a part of several conversations- offline and online. What’s amusing is the general public trying to differentiate parody accounts vs real ones. And when they think this fight will never really happen, recent events constantly hint towards it actually happening.
Elon Musk’s Response
Though this was also started with the parody account, Musk personally responded to it. The parody account yet again tweeted calling Zuckerberg “Lizard Boy” and “see you in the cage Zuck”.
Elon Musk responded to this tweet by saying “So many people think this account is me”.
Musk’s rage, though, extends beyond simple social media jabs. In a cease-and-desist letter to Zuckerberg, his attorney Alex Spiro charged that he had used “dozens of former Twitter employees” to produce a “copycat” program.
