Elon Musk Deletes His Twitter Account in Unexpected Move

Elon Musk now tweets as 'Daddy DotCom' after deleting his original account.

Elon Musk is never very far from the tabloids. He's either presenting a new invention or making interesting comments. 

On Monday, Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and co-founder of Tesla, unexpectedly tweeted that he had "deleted his Twitter account".

Even more bizarrely, Musk is in fact still tweeting, except now it's under the cryptic name of "Daddy DotCom".
