Since being posted, the tweet has garnered numerous reactions and more than 429.6k likes. “Perhaps Mr Tweet could make a comedy channel on here? Because Comedians are not funny anymore.

Another user said, “but you didn't lose your blue check mark like the rest of us! care to explain? "

“I consider myself a fairly good Tweeter as well. Take this thread on Lobsters for example. That's right, Lobsters. Why? I have no idea..." one more user commented. 

“For anyone not in on the joke, the lawyer for the investors suing Elon accidentally called him “Mr. Tweet" while grilling him this week," the fourth user said. 

Musk who took over the reins of Twitter last year for $44 billion has since the takeover brought several changes to the company which also included the subscription plans for the verified blue badge.
