Long-awaited news about Elon Musk was confirmed during a Twitter exchange with Indian entrepreneur Kunal Shah, who asked the busy multi-billionaire CEO how he manages such a punishing workload.
“I’m an alien,” he wryly responded.
The exchange took place on Friday night after the founder of credit payments app CRED asked Musk, the dominant figure behind Tesla, Paypal, SpaceX, Neuralink, The Boring Company, and SolarCity, how he does it.
Worst kept secret
Musk, 49, without missing a beat, took the opportunity to ‘come clean’ about his ‘true identity.’
“I’m an alien”
To which Shah jokingly replied: “Entropy confirmed.”
Needless to say, the banter triggered a slew of memes, with many laughing about the world’s “Worst kept secret.”
“Is that why you’re building a Spaceship … to get back to your home planet?” asked one Twitter user, as others dropped their dankest memes.
“If one was to be dating an alien and they break up, would that make the alien their Space ex? (haha SpaceX saw this joke a long time ago)” one amateur comedian quipped.
Musk is known for his prolific and sometimes precarious market-moving tweets, dubbed ‘The Musk effect.’
The combination of an itchy trigger finger speculating about cryptocurrencies and a penchant for memes and trolling, has set both crypto and stock markets alight in recent weeks, especially against a backdrop of the Gamestonks saga.
