Elon Musk Reacts to His Parody Twitter Account – Here’s His Response

Meta’s new app, Threads, is currently facing the potential of a legal battle with Twitter. CNN reports that Twitter has sent a letter to Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, threatening to sue. Twitter accuses Meta of trade secret theft by hiring ex-Twitter employees.

Amidst the legal battle between Meta and Twitter, a parody Twitter account of Elon Musk has gained significant attention. What’s interesting is that Elon Musk himself has responded to the account.

The parody account, known as [Elon Musk (Parody)], has amassed 340.2k followers. In a recent tweet targeting the Threads app, the account stated, “I spent $44 billion for this app and now Lizard boy just decided to hit copy and paste. It’s personal now. See you in the cage, Zuck.”

Assuming the tweet came from Elon Musk, it has garnered 26.1 million views and over 54.7k retweets. In fact, Elon Musk, who owns Twitter, replied to the tweet, saying, “So many people think this account is me 👀.”

Twitter’s potential legal battle against Meta Platforms marks the beginning of a contentious dispute between the two social media giants. Legal experts believe that Twitter would face significant challenges in pursuing the lawsuit.

According to Reuters, Twitter sent a letter on Wednesday accusing Meta of utilizing its trade secrets in the development of Threads. Twitter demanded that Meta stop using the confidential information.

Twitter also alleged that Meta had recruited former Twitter employees who had kept unauthorized devices and documents from their time at Twitter. Additionally, Twitter claimed that Meta deliberately assigned these individuals to work on Threads.

At this stage, it is uncertain whether a lawsuit will be filed. Andy Stone, a spokesperson for Meta, responded to the allegations in a Threads post on Thursday, stating that none of the engineering team members involved with the platform had previously worked for Twitter.
