Responding to Barstool founder Dave Portnoy, Musk said that he's not "super worried" about the state of his site. Portnoy tweeted at Musk, "What do people mean when they say Twitter is gonna shut down? Doesn’t it kinda run itself? I feel like engineers are for changes not to just keep it running? I also don’t know anything," asking him if he wanted to do a Twitter Space with him.
Musk simply responded, "The best people are staying, so I'm not super worried."
Musk would then tweet, "And... we just hit another all-time high in Twitter usage lol," followed up by "let that sink in... " a reference to him carrying a sink to Twitter HQ upon becoming owner.
In another response to British news commentator Piers Morgan, Musk suggested that those who are whining about "the death of Twitter" should just leave the site.
"Could all the people currently whining about 'the death of Twitter' since [Elon Musk] bought it... just leave Twitter?" to which Musk simply responded, "Seriously."
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also chimed in last night, tweeting, "Shout out to all the workers at Twitter. You all built a vital place for connection and deserved so much better.
"Millions of people appreciate the space you built and the hard work that went into it. Thank you," to which Musk responded, "You're welcome".
Video from outside the Twitter HQ shows that a projection calling Musk a "Lawless oligarch, space Karen, mediocre manchild," and a "petty racist worthless billionaire" was projected on the wall of the building.
