Musk mocks Twitter gay pride month logos, finds issue in his own feed: ‘Very strange indeed!’

With June marking Pride month, Elon Musk appears to be playfully making fun of virtue-signaling corporate America for an anticipated flurry of supportive online imagery.

The world’s richest man separately seemed to wonder about why his tweets are supposedly getting throttled.

In his often-cryptic or trolling manner, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO tweeted a meme on Tuesday to his 96 million followers of a dust storm that was carrying with it corporate rainbow logos below a label that read “June is almost here,” along with the scowling face of a man.

This kind of messaging from the visionary and quirky Musk will hardly ingratiate himself with left-wing Twitter, which is already triggered that the tech entrepreneur is trying to buy the platform in the name of free speech.

Last year, Fortune magazine pointed out in the context of some big-name corporations omitting Pride logos in markets such as in the Middle East, that “Some Twitter users have been quick to call out companies’ conflicting accounts as opportunistic and signs of ‘corporate wokeism’—or shallow efforts to be seen as socially progressive only when it will burnish the brand.”

A number of Twitter users have called attention to that Tesla apparently celebrated Pride Month back in 2018, however.

In the meantime, Musk fan Steven Mark Ryan claimed on Monday that Twitter is messing with its presumptive new boss, which prompted the latter, who seems to carefully monitor his mentions despite everything on his plate, to respond that the situation was “very strange indeed.”

“Twitter is FKING you,” Ryan claimed. “Dear everyone, SCROLL down on @Elon Musk’s tweets & replies and tell me…Do They Stop Loading????”

Ryan then took a poll, in which nearly 80 percent of the approximately 10,000 respondents agreed that Musk’s tweets “stop loading after a short scroll.”

Musk has also called for transparency in the Twitter algorithm and has lamented the amount of bots among the platform’s user base, which is complicating the deal’s closing.

“Hoping soon after this tweet thread is posted this ‘bug’ is fixed, but I’m not counting on it,” Ryan added in the thread.

According to the New York Post on Tuesday, it “confirmed at the time of writing that his feed does not display any replies that are older than 17 hours and the earlier tweets only showed up after adjusting the settings to display only public tweets.”

“Musk’s tweets older than 11 hours briefly stopped loading for some users, but the glitch went away on its own after repeatedly refreshing the page for around 30 minutes,” the Daily Mail asserted.

Separately, the Post is reporting that the multitasking Musk, 50, a father of seven, has a new girlfriend: actress Natasha Bassett, 27.
