Elon Musk recently became the board member of Twitter. Almost at the same time Twitter revealed that an edit button will soon arrive, which was the most anticipated feature for its users. Elon may be one of the world’s richest man but he is not boring at all, as he sarcastically posted a meme on the platform he recently became the board member of.

After noticing a lack of interaction by some of Twitter’s top stars, billionaire Elon Musk questioned the future of the social media network in which he recently purchased a share. Musk, who was invited to join Twitter’s board of directors this week, retweeted a list of the most popular accounts among his followers.

Musk claimed that the bulk of Twitter’s top accounts rarely use the network and wondered if this was a sign that the platform was “dying.” Former President Barack Obama, pop stars Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Lady Gaga, and soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo are among the accounts with the most followers.

Most of these ‘top’ accounts tweet rarely and post very little content. Is Twitter dying? For example, @taylorswift13 hasn’t posted anything in 3 months. And @justinbieber only posted once this entire year.

According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, purchased a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter Inc.
Following the revelation, Twitter’s stock soared by more than 25%. Musk now owns approximately 73.5 million shares of Tesla, making him the company’s largest shareholder, with individual shares trading at $49.81 recently Musk’s purchase comes just over a week after he chastised Twitter for its lack of commitment to free expression.
