Twitter’s Doge LogoOn April 4, users noted that the Twitter bird was missing from its logo, and was replaced with the Shiba Inu emblem. What's more, Musk subsequently posted, "the bird is freed." While rumor has it that this was an April Fool's joke, the new update has reportedly upped the value of Dogecoin!

The Sink Game!Remember a time when Musk carried a sink along as he entered the Twitter headquarters, shortly after taking over as the CEO, precisely in October, 2022? Well, it didn't end there. He looked straight into the camera and said, "You can't help but let that sink in."

Attempting To Solve Russia- Ukraine WarTo put an end to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Musk offered a contentious peace plan. He advised Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to adopt a neutral stance and delay Ukraine's NATO membership. Well, well.

Taking A Dig At Bill GatesIn April last year, Musk posted a pregnant man emoji that bore an uncanny resemblance to Bill Gates (taking a mean dig at his dad bod, maybe?). While Musk received massive backlash for the same, he clearly didn't care.
