Elon Musk sent out a very mysterious tweet the other day after receiving a threat from Russia. The billionaire who recently bought Twitter has been supplying internet equipment to Ukraine – and now Russia has decided that it’s time to threaten Musk by saying “you will be held accountable like an adult – no matter how much you’ll play the fool.”
Being threatened by Russia is no laughing matter.
The tweet that Musk sent out to his fans says that he’s not laughing, either. He’s likely more than a little concerned.
“If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin ya”
This tweet is enough to let people know to be on the lookout for what could happen to the billionaire. And if he were to suddenly die mysteriously, everyone would know to turn to Russia to determine what happened.
Musk is one of the most beloved tech entrepreneurs of our time. He’s given us SpaceX, Tesla, The Boring Company, and so much more. And, his amusing tweets have kept us entertained on cold, lonely nights.
It’s not surprising that his fans have come out in droves to determine how best to protect Elon Musk.
First, let’s understand the reasoning behind the threat. A portion of communication was shared by Musk on Twitter that said, “The internet terminals of Elon Musk’s satellite company were delivered to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Ukrainian Marines in Mariupol by military helicopters.” Musk followed it up by identifying that “Nazi” doesn’t mean what he thinks it means.
Obviously, Russia is upset because Musk has chosen to support Ukraine in the conflict that has been going on for months. Many have praised Musk for sending the necessary satellites so that Ukrainians can communicate effectively, all through his Starlink company.
Musk has been accused of supplying the “fascists” with military communication equipment, thus giving Ukraine the leg-up on Russia.
The question that we have to ask is what Russia thinks that they are going to do about it.
Many people have shown support to Ukraine in one way or another. Companies of all sizes have shown solidarity to the nation – and they have not received any threats. At least, no one has gone public with threats that they have received.
Thousands of comments have been made to Musk, many of them telling him that he needs to be cautious. One user even tweeted “Please get Elon Musk extra security just to be safe.”
It’s likely that Musk already has security in one form or another – but when you’re dealing with Russia, it really is better to err on the side of caution, isn’t it?
Adel de Meyer, a blockchain advocate, mused that they would make it look like an “unexpected suicide” because Musk would be unable to handle the pressure of running both Twitter and Tesla.
It’s become clear that many think the world of Musk. And considering how Musk isn’t afraid to back down from anyone, he may be our only hope at getting the nation back on track. He’s even taken on Elizabeth Warren as she’s tried to get him to pay EVEN MORE taxes than he already does.
One user commented, “We must protect you at all costs. Humanity is counting on you.”
If Russia were going to target anyone for helping Ukraine, we would hope that it would be anyone other than Musk. Surely, there are other people to hate more than the humanitarian-loving billionaire, right?
In the meantime, it’s worth following Musk on Twitter just to see if there’s any funny business going on that we should know about.
