Musk claims the Elon Musk vs. Mark Zuckerberg combat will be streamed on X. Musk claims that the potential confrontation between him and Mark Zuckerberg will be streamed on X, formerly known as Twitter.
In a pair of tweets on Sunday morning, the platform’s owner stated that he was “lifting weights all day in preparation for the fight” and that “all proceeds will be donated to veterans’ charities.”
Musk has provided no additional information about the altercation.
In June, it appeared that the two Big Tech billionaires had consented to a cage match. Threads, a new Twitter competitor introduced by Zuckerberg’s company Meta last month, increased the stakes of the potential conflict.
Sunday afternoon, Zuckerberg responded to Musk via Threads, “Shouldn’t we use a more reliable platform that can raise money for charity?”
He added, “Today, I am prepared. When (Musk) first challenged me, I suggested August 26, but he has not confirmed. Not expecting anything.”Since Musk’s October 2022 takeover of Twitter, policy reversals, technical issues, and the platform’s position on harassment and hate speech have given many users whiplash. When Threads was released, some viewed it as a viable alternative that could unseat its rival, and the app’s initial reception was overwhelmingly positive. A counsel for Twitter even threatened legal action over Threads.
