If there's one thing you can count on Elon Musk for, he can stir up social media with a single tweet. This time, the SpaceX and Tesla CEO announced he'd found a new CEO for Twitter, causing the phrase "CEO of Twitter" to trend worldwide.
On May 11, Musk tweeted a tongue-in-cheek announcement: "Just met with Twitter's new CEO. She will join in 6 weeks." As usual, he didn't provide any more details, leaving Twitter users curious, bewildered, and amused.
And then, the memes started flooding in.
Twitter exploded with creative responses to Musk's tweet. Many users humorously asked if the new CEO was Musk's pet Shiba Inu, while others speculated it could be an AI bot or even a random Twitter user. Some even questioned if this was another elaborate prank by the notorious billionaire.
"Can confirm. I am the new CEO of Twitter,"
one user jestingly replied.
"Elon, I told you that in confidence,"
another quipped. It wasn't long before the platform was inundated with memes, gifs, and witty comments, all thanks to Musk's playful announcement.
The tech mogul's tweet comes amidst a wave of speculation about his relationship with Twitter. Musk has been critical of the platform's policies and even hinted at creating a competing social network. While this announcement is likely another of his notorious jokes, it got Twitter users talking.
As the world continues to reel from the hilarity of Musk's tweet, one thing is clear: the tech billionaire never disappoints when it comes to making waves on social media. Whether it's launching cars into space or 'appointing' new CEOs, Musk's tweets will always be a trending topic.
