Twitter owner Elon Musk had some fun on the platform Sunday, in the week when Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta revealed its ‘Twitter but with way more censorship’ clone Threads.
Musk weighed in after the official Threads account for Wendy’s (the burger joint) suggested that Zuckerberg should travel into space to get one up on Musk.
“Hey @zuck, you should go to space just to really make him mad lol,” the Wendy’s account… threaded, to which ‘Zuck’ responded with a laughing emoji.
Musk responded by labelling Zuckerberg a “cuck”:
Zuck is a cuck— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 9, 2023
Then Musk took it one further...
I propose a literal dick measuring contest 📏— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 10, 2023
No, it wasn’t a parody account:

Oops 😅— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 10, 2023
This did come from a parody account however:

Where do you want to be? On Twitter having fun or Threads having your data scraped and everything you post removed?
You will get more laughs from this app than everything else combined— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 10, 2023
But I have to warn you … don’t be shocked … there’s some negative stuff too
Musk continues to respond to all things Threads and Zuckerberg on Twitter…

Accurate assessment. Threads is just Instagram minus pics, which makes no sense, given that thirst pics are the main reason people use that app.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 8, 2023
How many times have you read comments on Insta pics & wished there were more? Personally, never.

I just told 127,000 followers on Instagram that I’m deleting my account— Ashley St. Clair (@stclairashley) July 10, 2023
I no longer want to give my attention to companies and people who hate me, who hate fundamental American values
For now, I will be on Twitter & Twitter only. Maybe that will change & I’ll leave the Matrix…
With every fiber in my body— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 10, 2023
As we highlighted last week, Twitter has sent a cease and desist letter to Zuckerberg warning that legal action will be taken in light of theft of protected intellectual property and trade secrets by Threads.
