Elon Musk has broken his Twitter silence after nine days.
The Tesla billionaire re-appeared on the social media app he’s attempting to purchase for $44bn for the primary time since 21 June on Friday evening, posting a tribute to a YouTuber who died of cancer, an image of his 4 sons having an audience with Pope Francis and a throwback to his fortieth birthday weekend.
Mr Musk tweeted a tribute to the late YouTuber that stated: “Popular Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade with 12 Billion subscribers recently passed away on the age of 23 as a result of cancer, and this made [me] realize that cancer is [an] absurd piece of literal garbage and death, but in addition attempt to live your best life with individuals who know. They might die the next day, and you’ll regret not doing things with them.”
He also tweeted: “Feeling … perhaps … a bit bored?”
The entrepreneur also posted a photograph of the Pope with himself, his son Griffin, 18, and triplets, Kai, Damian and Sax Musk, who’re all 16.
Mr Musk also shared a photograph of himself in a “tragic suit” he wore the last time he visited Venice together with his now ex-wife Talulah Riley.
Mr Musk’s last tweet on 21 June was a reply to a post in regards to the fight between SpaceX and FCC over the previous’s space web programme, Starlink.
A day later, on 22 June, Mr Musk liked numerous posts. A few of them were about his try and take over Twitter, and others were entirely unrelated.
But since that day, exactly one week ago, Mr Musk has not posted on the platform in any respect. He made no announcement a couple of possible departure, and has not explained the silence.
He even stayed silent as he crossed the milestone of getting 100 million followers, something shared with only a few members of the platform.
Mr Musk is one in all Twitter’s most high-profile users, and is an unusually prolific poster amongst celebrities. Before his unexplained silence, he had posted no less than once a day for greater than a month.
