Elon Musk returns to Twitter after mysterious 9-day absence

Elon Musk recently went on a hiatus from Twitter that lasted over a week.

The Washington Examiner, in fact, reports that Musk, who typically tweets regularly, had not posted a tweet in nine days. 

However, the streak came to an end on Friday.

Where’d he go?

Musk went silent on Twitter on June 21. One of the last things he tweeted was a photo of a 7Eleven sign that showed the regular price of gas and diesel to be $7.11 per gallon. But, after that, it was silence for nine straight days.

Musk’s absence from Twitter, as the Examiner points out, was quite a surprise since the billionaire “has been a serial tweeter for years and has posted more than 15,000 tweets since he started tweeting regularly in 2012.”

Suffice it to say, that the nine-day hiatus resulted in a lot of speculation about what Musk might be up to.

Various ideas were presented, such as that the silence might have something to do with Musk’s Twitter acquisition, or legal problems with his companies, or even the fact that one of his children recently identified as a transgender woman.

But, the fact of the matter is that we, the general public, had no idea why Musk went silent for nine days. And, it is a question that remains unanswered.

Musk’s return

Musk returned to Twitter on Friday posting several tweets. Among Musk’s tweets was this one, about the recent death of the YouTuber Technoblade:

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade with 12 Billion subscribers recently passed away at the age of 23 due to cancer, and this made [me] realize that cancer is [an] absurd piece of literal garbage and death, but also try to live your best life with people who know.

Then, Musk asked, “Feeling … perhaps … a little bored?” before posting a picture of himself along with his children meeting with Pope Francis.

Musk, however, did not reveal why he suddenly disappeared from Twitter for nine days.

Whatever the reason may be, it appears that he is now back, and his supporters have made it clear that they really appreciate his return to the platform.
