Billionaire Elon Musk has a love-hate relationship with Twitter. He has used the microblogging platform to make some of the biggest announcements (including ‘funding secured‘) about Tesla and SpaceX. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey once said Musk was one of the most exciting Twitter users. His tweets have landed him in legal trouble more than once. Let’s take a look at some of the most interesting Elon Musk tweets of 2019.
In a recent defamation case, the billionaire entrepreneur’s lawyers argued that Twitter should not be taken seriously. They implied that anything Elon Musk says – including his statements on Tesla and SpaceX – on the platform should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Over the years, Musk has used Twitter for more than just corporate communications. He loves to interact with his fans, solve customer-service problems, post silly memes, announce new products and features, make music suggestions, and of course, bully his enemies.

A couple of months ago, Musk tweeted that he was “Not sure about the good of Twitter.” It was followed by another tweet saying, “Going offline.” The billionaire then praised Reddit, which sparked speculations that he might ditch Twitter for Reddit. He went offline for three days and when he returned to Twitter, the first thing he did was to delete those two tweets. Then he announced SpaceX’s successful tests.

6- ‘Door hinge’ rhymes with ‘orange’
Back in October, Elon Musk tweeted that the “color orange is named after the fruit.” That’s an interesting observation. When he has some free time, Musk reads and responds to tweets from his fans. When one of the followers said, “There’s also no word in English that rhymes with orange,” Musk was quick to reply “Door Hinge.” That’s two words instead of one, but it rhymes.

About four years ago, Elon Musk appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and floated the idea of nuking the poles of the Red Planet to warm it up. Some thought he was joking while others dubbed him a supervillain. In August, he again said, “Nuke Mars!” SpaceX even sells “Nuke Mars” T-shirts.
