Elon Musk, the world's richest man, is frequently in the headlines for his tweets, and he was all over social media platforms a few days ago after he finalized the agreement to acquire the highly popular Twitter for $44 billion. Musk joined Twitter in 2010 and currently has over 85 million followers, the seventh-most of any account and the most of any corporate leader.


Musk's latest tweet has gone viral after creating a sensation with his Twitter contract and focus on free expression. Musk tweeted on Thursday morning (India time), "Next I'm purchasing Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in."

Musk's latest tweet has gone viral after creating a sensation with his Twitter contract and focus on free expression. Musk tweeted on Thursday morning (India time), "Next I'm purchasing Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in."

The tweet has already been retweeted over 1,45,000 times (and counting) and has received hundreds of responses. One user wondered whether Musk could "purchase the IRS and abolish taxes," while another joked that he is "too poor" to buy Coke. Some netizens attacked him, claiming that narcotics are illegal in their nation, while others uploaded memes. Some people also expressed concern that Musk might ruin their Twitter experience, whilst others viewed the remark in a lighthearted manner and engaged in some humor.


According to the Associated Press (AP), Musk's previous tweets are "playful, combative, and frequently childish," demonstrating how he has used social media to construct his public image as a brash billionaire willing to offend. They may also offer information about Musk's plans for the platform he aspires to own. "Take a look at the feed: it's disorganized.


It's sporadic. It can be rather severe at times "According to the Associated Press, Jennifer Grygiel, a Syracuse University professor who studies social media and recently assigned Musk's tweets as reading material for their students. "It portrays him as a rebel commander who will seize control of the public square in order to rescue it. That is a fiction that he has created."


Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, uses his Twitter account to make business announcements and promote his companies, according to the Associated Press. He ponders technology and commerce, but he's also made comments about women's breasts and compared Canada's prime minister to Hitler. He frequently speaks in on world affairs, such as when he tweeted in March 2020 that "the coronavirus epidemic is foolish."


He's also used the account to lash out at detractors, such as when he referred to a diver attempting to rescue boys trapped in a cave in Thailand as a "pedo," short for paedophile. The diver had previously opposed Musk's plan to rescue the lads using a submarine. Musk, who won the diver's defamation action, later stated that he never intended "pedo" to be construed as "paedophile."

Musk tweeted after agreeing to acquire Twitter, "Free speech is the backbone of a functional democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where subjects essential to humanity's future are debated."


"By "free speech," I simply mean speech that is legal. I am opposed to censorship that goes beyond the law. People who desire less free speech will petition the government to pass legislation to that effect. Going beyond the law is thus against the will of the people "Musk said in a tweet.
