This week Facebook was again in the news but for all the wrong reasons. Facebook allowing users’ private information to a British political consultancy’s use was really shady that outburst users to initiate the much-hyped #deletefacebook movement. Well, the movement is still gaining all the momentum but that’s a news of past. The trend on Twitter has now gained the support from the lead designer of SpaceX, Elon Musk himself. The American-Canadian born businessman has taken down the Facebook pages of Tesla & SpaceX.

It all happened on the world’s most popular chirping website, in exactly the same series quoted here:

As soon as users came to know about Facebook data breach through Cambridge Analytica, it initiated the #deletefacebook movement. To that WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton tweeted  “It is time. #deletefacebook,” that added fuel to the burning fire the flames of which immediately reached to our own thinker and creator Elon Musk.

For whatever reason, Musk Decided to tweet back to Acton’s tweet with “What’s Facebook?” he appeared to be joking for sure, but the active twitter community never let threads go unnoticed and it is of course not possible to not refocus our attention span towards a tweet that Musk himself has tweeted. More threads were added as a user tweeted:

To which Elon Musk replied,

“I didn’t realize there was one. Will do,” Musk replied. At this point, it wasn’t clear whether Musk was trolling or being serious, so others joined in.

“This should be deleted too, right?” tweeted Bryson Masse, a reporter with a screenshot of Tesla’s page. “Definitely. Looks lame anyway,” Musk replied to Masse.

As soon as Elon Musk announced to delete his company pages, they were already taken down. Elon Musk brands are no more online including SpaceX, the spaceflight company, Tesla, the electric car manufacturer, Hyperloop, the transportation project that aims to build high-speed traveling system all across the world and SolarCity, a Tesla subsidiary.

Musk is among the most high profile entrepreneur to ditch Facebook in the wake of the scandalous revolutions. The ongoing phase doesn’t seem to be favorable for Facebook.
