Let’s Study Musk’s Tweet
Musk tweeted the picture and captioned “Welcoming back Ligma & Johnson!” Soon after he sent the second tweet adding that it was important to admit when he was wrong & firing employees was truly one of his biggest mistakes.
The billionaire admitted his mistake and welcomed the two employees – Rahul Lgma and Daniel Johnson. But they weren’t ex-employees of Twitter. They are pranksters and the tweet was a fitting reply to their pranks.
What Was The Prank Musk Replied To?
As soon as Twitter started firing employees, netizens started criticizing the mass layoff by Musk. Ligma and Johnson also pretended to be laid-off Twitter employees on the Internet. They tricked media outlets to gain attention as people were anxiously waiting to know about the mass layoff on Twitter.
People posted several images showing the layoff of Twitter employees. But Musk replied to the meme in which Rahul Ligma was seen talking to reports holding a copy of Michelle Obama’s book ‘Becoming’. Musk replied to that meme “Ligma Johnson had it coming”.
