In a stunning move that has left the tech world in shock, Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, has banned Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter account.
The announcement was made on Musk’s own Twitter account, which he used to explain his reasons for the ban. “I have decided to ban Mark Zuckerberg from Twitter,” Musk tweeted. “He’s just too boring. I mean, have you ever read his tweets? They’re about as interesting as watching paint dry. I’m doing him a favor, really.”
The ban has sparked outrage among Zuckerberg’s supporters, who have accused Musk of abusing his power and violating free speech. Some have even called for a boycott of Musk’s companies, arguing that he has gone too far.
But Musk seems unfazed by the criticism. “I’m sorry, but I just can’t stand the guy’s tweets,” he tweeted. “They’re so dull and uninspired. I mean, come on, Mark, show some personality!”
Zuckerberg, for his part, has not yet commented on the ban. But sources close to him say that he is considering taking legal action against Musk, arguing that the ban is a violation of his rights.
Meanwhile, Twitter has remained largely silent on the issue. When asked for comment, a spokesperson for the company simply said, “We don’t comment on individual accounts.”
The ban has raised questions about the power of tech CEOs and their ability to control the online conversation. Some worry that Musk’s actions could set a dangerous precedent, giving other CEOs the idea that they can ban people they disagree with or find boring.
But Musk seems unconcerned. “I’m just trying to make Twitter a more interesting place,” he tweeted. “If that means banning some people, so be it.”
