Using Twitter could get you fired, warns Elon Musk

It's certainly a joke, as Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently got himself into trouble for selling some of his Tesla stock based on a Twitter vote.

New Delhi: Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is well-known not just for leading the world's most valuable electric vehicle (EV) firm, but also for his quick wit on Twitter. The 50-year-old entrepreneur is frequently seen tweeting about cryptocurrency and artificial intelligence, and he does not shy away from sharing memes that most professionals would avoid in a rigid corporate atmosphere. It's no secret that posting something "controversial" on the microblogging site might lead to your termination. 'Speak without repercussions,' as ancient internet users like to say, is a classic old dispute. As a result, Musk has turned the disaster into a meme with this funny one-liner, which some may interpret as a warning.

He recently shared a meme with a picture of Twitter and the caption "be fired from your job in five to ten years." "Say something you desire," it continues. Though it is difficult to comprehend, it may serve as a reminder of the childhood lesson of 'consider before you speak.' The fact that Musk himself commented on the tweet, "Good thing I never tweet anything controversial," adds to the intrigue.
