After buying the stake, Elon Musk tweeted, ‘Is Twitter dying?’

The newest board member and the largest shareholder of Twitter is Elon Musk he tweeted on Saturday to ask if the network was dying and called out users like singer Justin Bieber, who are highly followed but rarely post.

“Most of these ‘top’ profiles rarely tweet and post very little content,” wrote the Tesla boss with a list of the 10 profiles with the most followers – on which he ranks at number eight, with 81 million followers.

“Is Twitter dying?” He asked.

Former US President Barack Obama is appearing at the top with 131 million followers, followed by stars like Bieber, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Taylor Swift, as well as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and football star Cristiano Ronaldo.

“For example, @ taylorswift13 hasn’t posted anything in 3 months,” Musk continued.

“And @justinbieber has only posted once this year.”

The company appointed Muska to the board on Tuesday after revealing he had acquired more than a nine percent stake in the company, making him Twitter’s largest shareholder. Musk said he was looking forward to making “significant improvements on Twitter” soon and began questioning his followers about whether to add an “edit” button to the service, which has long been debated.

Twitter has announced it will test it.

Musk posted a photo on Twitter on Thursday smoking marijuana on Joe Rogan’s podcast 2018, with the caption: “Twitter’s next board meeting will burn.”

His antics often provoke astonishment and occasional condemnation, such as when Jewish groups condemned his tweet in which he compared Canadian leader Justin Trudeau to Adolf Hitler for a prescribed vaccine against covid-19. Musk later deleted the tweet without apology.

The appointment has raised doubts among some employees, according to the Washington Post.

California-based social media workers said they were concerned about Musk’s statements on transgender issues and his reputation as a tough and relentless leader, according to statements at Slack reviewed by the Post.

The California agency sued Tesla, alleging discrimination and harassment of black workers. The electric car maker has denied the allegations, saying he opposes discrimination.
