In a surprise move, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he will be banning Tesla CEO Elon Musk from the social media platform, citing Musk’s “unpredictable behavior” and “propensity to create chaos”.
The decision comes after a series of peculiar tweets from Musk, which included allegations of Facebook’s role in the spread of misinformation and calls for the platform to be regulated.
In response, Musk took to Twitter (on which he has not yet been banned) to mock Zuckerberg’s decision, saying, “Who needs Facebook anyway? Instagram is cool enough and Twitter took my life.” Wrecked my sleep!”
Musk suggested that Facebook was threatened by Tesla’s growing influence in the tech industry, and said, “Maybe Mark is just jealous that we’re building cars and rockets, while he’s still trying to figure it out.” Here’s how to prevent your forum from becoming a haven for fake news and trolls.
The ban has sparked controversy among social media users, with many questioning the implications of a powerful CEO like Zuckerberg’s ability to silence voices he deems “disruptive.”
For Musk, it seems he’s taking the ban seriously, focusing on his other ventures and continuing to share his unfiltered opinions with his millions of followers on Twitter.
