Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is notorious for causing a sensation with his tweets, and he did it again today with a statement about dying under “mysterious circumstances.”
He wrote about a week after he announced his decision to buy micro-blogging site Twitter for $44 Billion, “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya.”
Elon Musk’s “death” tweet came barely two hours after he issued what looked to be a news release claiming that his Starlink satellite communication equipment was assisting Ukrainian soldiers. Elon Musk will be “held accountable” for his conduct, according to the statement.
According to the statement, the equipment was given to Ukraine by the Pentagon, the US Department of Defense’s headquarters.
The two posts aroused debate about whether Tesla CEO Elon Musk is experiencing Russian threats for assisting Ukraine during the conflict.
After a minister from the war-torn country reached out, Mr. Musk’s company SpaceX’s Starlink satellite broadband service was activated in Ukraine in February.
The tweet about a mysterious death drew a wide range of comments, from jokes to caution to solidarity.
