Billionaire entrepreneur, Elon Musk, known to stir up a storm with his tweets, sparked another buzz in a post talking about death under “mysterious circumstances”.
“If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowing ya,” he tweeted on Monday.
Although it is still unclear who “you” in this situation refers to, speculations are that he is referring to netizens who have shown him a lot of support.
The tweet met with varied responses, ranging from jokes to caution to solidarity.
Some users asked if Musk was intoxicated, others concluded that it is the huge taxes that is bothering him and some said he needs to live to bring about “reform”
The billionaire has been consistently making headlines over the past few months during which he criticised Twitter over the shrinking space for free speech, then opted out of joining its board at the last moment and then announcing his decision to buy it in a deal valued at $44 billion.
Following the announcement, he had teased radical ideas for the micro-blogging site, including introducing a fee for commercial and government users.
