Irony of Twitter boss Elon Musk being ‘unable’ to change his username

Twitter boss Elon Musk shocked his fans after disclosing that the bird application did not let him change his name back after making an alternate.

In a tweet, the technology guru said he had changed his original name from Elon Musk to Mr Tweet and could not change it back.

“Changed my name to Mr. Tweet, now Twitter won’t let me change it back,” he tweeted.

According to the guidelines spelled out by Twitter, you can change your username by just clicking on update information prompting you to first type in your password then you are allowed to update the username currently listed in the username field.

However, if the username is taken, you’ll be prompted to choose another one.

Having taken over Twitter operations as the CEO in October of last year, Musk made several changes some of which have rubbed the application’s users the wrong way.

His first action as CEO was firing top executives in the company as well as laying off 50 per cent of its employees. He justified the massive lay-offs saying the business had experienced a ‘massive drop’ in revenue as many advertisers withdrew and also alleged that activists are ‘trying to destroy free speech in America.’

He then announced that Twitter verified account owners would pay a monthly subscription. For the latter, the owner would part with Sh800 monthly to keep the blue tick, while Twitter Blue users would part with Sh2,428 monthly.

Musk then conducted a poll on whether or not he should step down as the Head of Twitter promising to abide by the poll results.

Surprisingly, more than 17 million Twitter users voted with 57.3 per cent of the bird app users voting yes and 42.7 per cent voting no.

But then Musk changed tone by saying he would only step down once he found someone foolish enough to take the job.
