Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, made headlines this week after revealing that he has been sleeping on a couch at Twitter’s offices while his house is being renovated. Musk made the revelation during an interview with Joe Rogan on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. He also shared that his dog, a Shiba Inu named Floki, has been keeping him company and even claimed that the dog is “in charge.”
Musk’s candid comments during the podcast also included his description of his takeover of Twitter earlier this year as “painful.” Musk had purchased $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin in February and began discussing it on Twitter, which led to a surge in the cryptocurrency’s value. However, Musk faced criticism for his tweets about the cryptocurrency and their impact on the market.
Despite the challenges of his Twitter takeover, Musk noted during a live business event that Twitter is currently at a “roughly break-even” point after the “quite painful” ownership transition.
While Musk’s living situation may seem unconventional, it is not the first time the CEO has made headlines for his choices. In a recent interview, he also admitted that he should not tweet after 3 a.m. due to the potential consequences of his late night social media activity.
As one of the world’s most successful and innovative business leaders, Elon Musk’s unique insights and quirks continue to captivate the public’s attention.
