Elon Musk's Activity on Twitter (X)
As the image above indicates, Elon Musk has had a constantly growing follower base on Twitter since early 2020, with a few jumps around May 2020, during the early times of his Twitter account, and around March 2022, approximately when he first started to talk about purchasing Twitter.
So what did he mostly talk about through all this time?
Elon Musk Tweeting About Tesla
Tesla, the electric car company that Musk leads as CEO, is one of his most successful and popular ventures. Tesla can be called to revolutionize the automotive industry with its innovative products and services, such as the Model S, Model 3, Model X, Model Y, Cybertruck, Roadster, Powerwall, Solar Roof, and Autopilot. However, Tesla has also faced many challenges and controversies, such as production delays, quality issues, lawsuits, regulatory hurdles, and competition from other automakers.
Musk has used Twitter as a platform to communicate with his customers, investors, employees, and fans about Tesla’s achievements, goals, challenges, and plans. He has also used Twitter to announce new products, features, updates, and promotions for Tesla. For example:
- In 2018, he tweeted that he was considering taking Tesla private at $420 per share, which caused a surge in Tesla’s stock price and a subsequent investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He later settled with the SEC and agreed to pay a $20 million fine and step down as Tesla’s chairman.
- In 2021, he tweeted that “You can now buy a Tesla with Bitcoin”, which made Tesla the first major automaker to accept cryptocurrency as a payment method.
Musk has also used Twitter to defend Tesla from critics, competitors, and detractors. He has often engaged in heated debates and arguments with journalists, analysts, short-sellers, rivals, and even celebrities who have questioned or criticized Tesla’s performance, products, or practices. For example:
- In 2020, he tweeted that “Tesla stock price is too high imo”, which caused a drop in Tesla’s stock price and puzzled many investors and observers. He later explained that he was not trying to manipulate the market but rather expressing his personal opinion.
- In 2022, he tweeted that Tesla will accept Dogecoin as payment, which boosted the price of Dogecoin, a cryptocurrency that started as a joke based on a meme of a Shiba Inu dog. Musk has been a vocal supporter of Dogecoin and has called it “the people’s crypto”.
Elon Musk Tweeting About SpaceX
SpaceX, the aerospace company that Musk founded and leads as CEO and chief engineer, is another one of his most ambitious and groundbreaking ventures. SpaceX has achieved many milestones in the space industry, such as launching and landing reusable rockets, sending astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS), deploying thousands of satellites for global internet service (Starlink), and developing a spacecraft for interplanetary travel (Starship).
Musk has used Twitter as a platform to share his vision and passion for space exploration and colonization. He has also used Twitter to update his followers on SpaceX’s progress, achievements, failures, and plans. For example:
- In 2021, he tweeted that “Mars is looking real”, which sparked a lot of interest and curiosity among his followers about SpaceX’s plans to send humans to Mars, which was something he has been after since 2016 and had in mind since the early 2000s.
- He also mentioned Dogecoin with a tweet saying that “SpaceX will launch a mission to the moon funded entirely by Dogecoin”, which was a surprise announcement that stunned the space community and the crypto enthusiasts.
Musk has also used Twitter to inspire and educate his followers about space science and technology. He has often posted stunning photos and videos of SpaceX’s rockets, spacecraft, launches, landings, and missions. He has also answered questions from his followers about SpaceX’s goals, challenges, technologies, and strategies. For example:
- In 2018, he tweeted photos of the Falcon Heavy launch test, saying that "the launch will be "in a week or so" in the caption, both to inform and hype the audience.
- In 2021, he tweeted about the Starship SN15 landing with the caption “Starship landing nominal!”, which marked the first successful landing of a Starship prototype after several failed attempts.
Elon Musk Tweeting About Other Topics
Besides Tesla and SpaceX, Musk has also tweeted about many other topics that reflect his diverse interests and opinions.
- He has tweeted about his other ventures such as Neuralink (a brain-computer interface company) and The Boring Company (a tunneling company).
- He has also tweeted about his personal life such as his family and relationships, his hobbies, and his philanthropy.
- Musk has also tweeted about various social issues such as climate change, artificial intelligence, COVID-19, politics, music, literature, religion, and so on.
All in all, we can say that he has been humane but also used tweeting so smartly that he and the organizations he represent mostly benefited from it. Wouldn't you like to master the art of tweeting like him too? Let's dig deeper.
