The attempt to get the attention of the multimillionaire owner of the social network was successful, as Elon Musk ended up responding to the request. The conversation online gave rise to a series of tweets about Throleifsson’s work qualities and his disability. “What work have you been doing?” and “The reality is that this man (who is independently wealthy) didn’t really work, he claimed, as an excuse, that he had a disability that prevented him from writing, but he was simultaneously stirring up a storm. I can’t say he has much respect for this” were some of Elon Musk’s messages.
