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".
Just deleted my Twitter account— Daddy DotCom (@elonmusk) June 17, 2019
No explanations have been offered either for this bold and quite random move, or for his new username.

Elon Musk is still somehow tweeting
Even though Musk is meant to be 'offline', he appears to be still commenting on his own comments, under different usernames and company names that he owns:
Luckily I, Elon Musk, have this second account which is definitely run by me— Mars (@4thFromOurStar) June 17, 2019
A stream of replies and tweets have been jostling back and forth.
