Elon Musk has suddenly stopped tweeting.
It’s been more than a week since the boss of Tesla and SpaceX posted on the platform he’s trying to buy.
Mr Musk’s last tweet came on June 21. It was a response to a post on the former space internet program, Starlink, about a fight between SpaceX and the FCC.
A day later, on June 22, Mr Musk liked several posts. Some of them were about his attempt to take over Twitter, and others were completely unrelated.
But since that day, exactly a week ago, Mr. Musk hasn’t posted on the forum at all. He made no announcement about a possible departure, and did not explain the silence.
He remained silent even as he crossed the milestone of 100 million followers, which was shared with very few members of the platform.

Mr Musk is one of Twitter’s most high-profile users, and an unusually prolific poster among celebrities. Before his vague silence, he had posted at least once a day for over a month.
Still, this isn’t the first time he’s left Twitter for a while. In recent years, he has occasionally announced that he will stop using the platform – and usually returns within a few days.
The silence comes amid growing scrutiny of its use by Twitter and Mr Musk. He’s moving closer to finalizing his buyout of the deal, which shareholders have rectified, but continues to suggest that the site contains more fake accounts than publicly acknowledged.
Mr Musk also stopped tweeting shortly after SpaceX employees conducted an open letter criticizing him for his relentless posting and its impact on the company.
“Elon’s behavior in the public sphere has often been a source of distraction and embarrassment to us, especially in recent weeks,” the letter read.
“As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX – any tweet that Elon sends is a genuine public statement by the company.”
Shortly thereafter, at least some of the employees involved in organizing the letter to SpaceX were fired.
