In the recent news, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has now crossed the threshold of 100 million Twitter followers, a milestone that coincided with a rare spell of his silence on the social media that has sparked speculation on Wall Street.

Moreover, Elon Musk joined Twitter in 2009, three years after the platform launched. In that time, he’s posted around 18,500 tweets across a huge range of subjects.

His average daily amount of posts on Twitter is 14, and most of them consist of memes, some of which take shots at other famous people.
