Elon Musk may be one of the most controversial personalities in the United States today. Previously viewed by many as a sort of technosavior for issues like climate change and our dependence on fossil fuels, many have since changed their opinions on the Tesla boss. Elon has recently been spending time on Twitter espousing his newly-discovered right-wing political views.
Typically, when Musk tweets, people listen. As Elon’s attempt to purchase the social media giant has cooled off, his political rants have continued. Since June 21, however, Elon Musk has gone silent.
Musk is approaching 100 million followers on Twitter. He is so influential that he has used the platform to disrupt free market trading. Elon has regularly used social media to pump up the prices of cryptocurrencies and even his own Tesla stock.
Since his most recent tweet, many have noticed that Elon Musk’s silence could be speaking louder than any post he’s made in the past. Some other tech influencers have been publicly wondering why Elon suddenly went silent. One reporter from CleanTechnica said there is nothing to worry about and that Musk is focused on Tesla and SpaceX.
Due to his recent politically-motivated tweets, many were waiting for Elon Musk to comment on the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Musk recently came out as a Republican on the platform. One would think he would have something to say, but thus far, he has been quiet on the matter.
Time will tell if Elon Musk returns to Twitter any time soon. At the moment, the silence is seen as suspect. It could be that he’s just taking a break, but there may be more to the story than meets the eye.
