Elon Musk has broken his streak of silence on Twitter, the social media platform he is buying.
Musk tweeted for the first time from his personal account on Friday, breaking a remarkable nine-day absence from Twitter, with a tribute to a popular YouTuber who passed away from cancer. He also shared a couple of photos including a throwback from the weekend of his 40th birthday party and a recent photo with Pope Francis and four of his children.
Musk tweeted a tribute to a deceased YouTuber that read, “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 garbage and literal death, but also try to live your best life with people who know. They could die the next day and you’ll be sorry you didn’t do anything with them.” The tribute included a quote from Sonic the Hedgehog.
