If the name “Elon Musk” was brought up in front of someone, the title “controversial American billionaire” would immediately come to mind.
Where did this nickname come from?
Musk is the de facto head of three giant companies: the first (Tesla), which is a very successful company, the second (SpaceX), which is an insanely ambitious company, and the third (Twitter/X), which is in a state of chaos.
Musk is known as the richest person on the planet, as his personal net worth fluctuates to more than $10 billion daily, and he is the father of 11 children by 3 women, according to the Guardian newspaper.
He also has 155 million followers on Twitter/X, which is more than anyone else, however, Musk only follows 415 accounts.
Long form posts on this platform are now at 3 billion views per day and rising

Also, anyone can know which accounts Musk follows on Twitter
Upon observation, we find that Musk’s style on Twitter is not very strange, and may even be very traditional, as he follows the official narratives of a good number of the most important people in the world, such as Sunak, Macron, Modi, von der Leyen, the European Union, and the US State Department, And the royal family, which means his schedule is sometimes crowded with trivial matters.
Many of the accounts he follows are worthless, while his schedule is filled with posts from a variety of Tesla supporters, such as Tesla Owners Silicon Valley, the Car Dealership Guy, and a slew of other happy investors in his business, who spend their time telling the big boss .
As for the issues that interest him, there is the sexual transformation of children, and everything that is pro-Russian, there are many of those he follows who are very skeptical about the sympathy of most Western politicians with Ukraine.
Musk also follows Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University and one of the co-authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, which called for lifting almost all Covid restrictions and allowing herd immunity to develop.
As well as pages from a collection of novels that celebrate classical heritage and traditional architecture.
Overall, Musk’s timeline is full of parodies, he’s light on wit, and he spends most of his time posting unflattering photos of Hillary Clinton or Volodymyr Zelensky looking sad.
What about responses?
It is noteworthy that Musk, despite all the confusion around him, is not deceiving anyone, except for stock analysts who are selling Tesla’s share price.
His responses to comments always come in the form of: “Interesting” or “Good question.”
Musk’s choice of accounts to follow is not ideologically homogeneous, as there is a range of viewpoints, especially since he does not follow anyone who seriously advocates for things he hates.
When he encounters these viewpoints, it is only by chance and he can ignore them.
