The billionaires’ fight continues. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, the owner of Twitter, insulted Mark Zuckerberg, the head of Meta Platforms.
Meta, owner of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, recently launched a new platform called Threads as a competitor to Twitter. This situation has not been warmly welcomed by Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX from the very beginning. Finally, Elon Musk raised the bar in his increasingly heated verbal duel with Mark Zuckerberg and called Zuckerberg “claws” in an abusive tweet on Sunday.
Musk vs Zuckerberg
In the four days since Zuckerberg launched Threads as a direct competitor to Musk’s Twitter, the billionaire duo has been strained. After posting posts on social media, threats of lawsuits and offers of cage fights, the incident has now increased to the level of personal insult. Musk responded to a Threads post from the official account of the fast-food chain Wendy’s, “Zuck is a cuck – Zuck is a g.vat.”
In Wendy’s thread, Zuckerberg wrote, “You have to go to space to really piss him off.” The Facebook founder also responded with a laughing emoji. After a Twitter user tweeted the thread, Musk simply responded with an “unbecoming” comment.
On the other hand, if you are someone who spends time on Twitter, you must have seen the popular Elon Musk (Parody) account recently. After Musk’s insulting tweet, this account said, “I can no longer follow which account I tweeted from.” made the statement. Not long after, Musk responded to this tweet with “Exactly”.
Why was the relationship between Zuckerberg and Musk tense?
It cannot be said that the billionaire duo loved each other very much from the very beginning, but the “data scraping”, that is, the inappropriate collection of data on the platform, especially on Twitter, which Musk recently voiced, has increased the tension. Musk stated that the data was collected by artificial intelligence initiatives and imposed a tweet viewing limit on Twitter.
Following Threads’ strong debut, Twitter attorney accused Zuckerberg of deliberately creating a copycat platform: “Twitter has taken both legal and precautionary measures without notice to prevent further retention, disclosure or use of its intellectual property by Meta. reserves all rights, including, but not limited to, the right to resort to injunctions.” “Competition is good, but cheating is not,” Musk tweeted. said.
