So … Elons having a bad time and it's all Twitters fault.
The billionaire has been the focus of ire for quite a while, but it's flared again recently thanks to his potential trial purchase of Twitter. Users haven't been shy about voicing their displeasure with the situation, and with Elon himself.
That general Twitter rumbling came to a hilarious boil the other day, as a reaction to Elon tweeting a decidedly unusual job ad.
We'd normally try to describe it with a few intro sentences, but nobody does Elon Musk quite like Elon Musk.
So yeah ... these are real tweets.
Seeing as how Mr. "There Will Be Blood" seemed to be leaning into his unpopular reputation, we don't imagine he was surprised at the response he got.
These tweets come after a series of PR nightmares for Musk. The Twitter thing hasn't been going great, sexual harassment lawsuits have been filed against him after he allegedly exposed himself to a flight attendant, and there have been some high profile Tesla mishaps.
...which meant these aggressive tweets looking for "hardcore" help could really only have gotten one reaction out of folks.
There Will Be Trolls.
Some opted to "apply"
While others pointed out how totally-not-sketchy this sounds.
So yeah, things are going great for Elon Musk in the public relations department right now - and by "great" we mean the exact opposite.
And Twitter is loving every moment of it.
