Testament’s Alex Skolnick Blames Elon Musk For ‘Deliberately Destroying’ Twitter

After Elon Musk‘s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter, the uncertainty about the direction of the social network under him has been a hot topic lately. It is also unclear how the company’s 7500 employees will be affected by Musk’s management of Twitter. In reply to the business person’s recent tweet, Testament lead guitarist Alex Skolnick claimed that Musk intentionally tried to kill the social media platform.

Elon Musk recently took to Twitter and wrote that the platform had seen a significant drop in revenue, even though he made no change in the company’s operations. Brands like General Mills, the Volkswagen Group, and Audi have temporarily stopped their ad spending on Twitter to see how things would change under Musk’s management. In his tweet, Musk accused activist groups of pressuring advertisers.

“Twitter has had a massive drop in revenue due to activist groups pressuring advertisers, even though nothing has changed with content moderation, and we did everything we could to appease the activists. Extremely messed up! They’re trying to destroy free speech in America,” he wrote.

Following that, Alex Skolnick responded to Musk by writing that he didn’t forget Musk trying to get out of the deal to buy Twitter a few months ago.”You fought like hell to get out of buying it (as many have forgotten – attention spans are short),” the guitarist said.

So perhaps killing it is your way of winning in the end? Freaking out advertisers by joking about an elderly man bludgeoned with a hammer (Why? Seriously?) certainly is a start,” said Skolnick, implying that Elon Musk deliberately destroys Twitter.

It seems like the SpaceX CEO’s decisions on Twitter will occupy the headlines in the upcoming days. The social media platform relies on users to generate advertising revenue, so it is unclear what the future holds for the operation of Twitter.
