Tesla, SpaceX and Starlink CEO Elon Musk has sounded the alarm after he noticed something strange about his Twitter account.
A fan of the man who has made a successful bid to purchase Twitter, to the chagrin of some of its employees, noticed that Musk’s tweets stopped loading after a short scroll.
“Hey @elonmusk, twitter is FKING you. Dear everyone, SCROLL down on @elonmusk’s tweets & replies and tell me….. DO THEY STOP LOADING????” the Twitter user said.
“The thing that’s fk’d about this is NO TRANSPARENCY. Twitter FKs users without consent (there’s a word for that, isn’t there…?) and doesn’t tell anyone what they’ve done. Users have NO RECOURSE and most never even KNOW they were—or are still BEING—FK’d. Not cool,” the user said.
“Hoping soon after this tweet thread is posted this “bug” is fixed, but I’m not counting on it,” he said.
The tweet caught the attention of the CEo who said in a tweet “Very strange indeed!”

The U.K.’s Daily Mail reported that it “confirmed that Musk’s tweets older than 11 hours briefly stopped loading for some users, but the glitch went away on its own after repeatedly refreshing the page for around 30 minutes.”
The New York Post reported that it had “confirmed at the time of writing that his feed does not display any replies that are older than 17 hours and the earlier tweets only showed up after adjusting the settings to display only public tweets.”
