He added, “CBS News quitting Twitter because they think @ElonMusk will allow hackers or something into their accounts is so weak. This is so stupid my head hurts.”
Then in an about-face CBS announced they were back on Sunday.
The network sent out word that it would return to the platform after less than 48 hours in a since-deleted tweet.
“After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation,” CBS News tweeted.
Is Musk having the last laugh?
In typical Musk fashion the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX responded to the CBS announcement by tweeting a laughing emoji.
Elon Musk finalized the acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion on October 27. And it has been a wild ride.
He appears to be making sweeping changes to the platform. Along with reinstating banned accounts there have been mass layoffs. And the introduction of Twitter Blue (which was pulled and is expected to be relaunched).
