Renamed “Chief Twit”, Elon Musk is filmed at the headquarters of the social network, a sink in his hands

The estrangement of the past few weeks already seems far away. Elon Musk uploaded a video this Wednesday showing him at the premises of Twitter, which he must complete the redemption by Friday. Proof that he has, in a way, already donned the costume of CEO of the social network: he renamed himself “Chief Twit” on Twitter.

In the short film, the fiery entrepreneur arrives at the reception of what seems to be the company’s headquarters, with a sink in his arms, hilarious. He thus plays on the word “sink” (washbasin), used in an American expression that he posted on the message accompanying the video. “I’m going into Twitter headquarters – I’ll let you absorb the information! “, or” Let that sink in “in English, he wrote, on his account.

Seven months of roller coaster

The conclusion of the transaction would put an end to seven months of adventures which have often opposed the boss of Tesla to the leaders of Twitter. In early July, Elon Musk announced that he gave up taking control of the social networka decision that Twitter had challenged in Delaware justice.

He had finally changed his mind at the beginning of October, a few days before a trial which promised to be delicate for him. But Twitter had refused to drop its lawsuit, leading the lead judge to dismiss the case and ask the parties to settle by October 28.
