It only took a few minutes for the Tesla Motors and SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk to create controversy on Twitter regarding the situation that Facebook is going through. Elon Musk erased the pages of his companies Tesla and SpaceX from Facebook, after ironically asking the WhatsApp co-founder, Brian Acton, “What is Facebook?” on Twitter. After he tweeted that he deleted the pages his companies had on the social network owned by Mark Zuckerberg.
Musk was dared to delete Tesla Motors and SpaceX Facebook pages
The sarcastic question of Elon Musk led one of the Twitter users to challenge the businessman to delete the Facebook pages of their companies, to which Musk replied that he did not even know that they existed, but that they would disappear right away.
Minutes later, both pages were no longer available on the social network.
Another user answered the question of Elon Musk, responding that it was a place where silly people believe Mark Zuckerberg to such an extent that they provide him their personal data.
In just a few minutes, more Twitter users joined the discussion and Elon Musk’s tweet has had thousands of retweets and favorites. In addition, the CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX has responded to other questions from users, including a technology reporter who branded him as an internet troll.
The Facebook scandal on Americans voting is far from ending
The New York Times and UK media claims that Cambridge Analytica tried to influence how Americans voted using poorly obtained information from 50 million Facebook users, which have already seriously damaged the name of the social network owned by Mark Zuckerberg.
The social network is facing an increase in questions about how the data of its users was collected for political purposes as investors continue to be frightened by the risk that the scandal represents for their business.
