Elon Musk hinted at Twitter’s takeover in response to a request to expand his security team could pose more threats.
twitter user urge Musk said on Friday he would face more threats after owning a social media platform to add more security personnel to his team.
Saturday Tesla CEO answered: “Actually, owning Twitter will not increase my life expectancy.”

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and legal chief Vijaya Gadde reassured employees on Thursday that the deal is not “pending” and will continue, Insider reported.
Musk’s request to strengthen his security team comes days after insiders revealed that in 2018 the SpaceX founder paid a flight attendant $250,000 to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit against him.
According to interviews and documents obtained by Insider, a flight attendant who worked on a SpaceX company jet accused Musk of exposing her erect penis to a horse in exchange for an erotic massage.
Musk denied the allegations of sexual harassment. Twitter: “That harsh accusation is completely untrue.”
He later said the accuser had to describe his scars or tattoos in a tweet that appeared to be aimed at the source and that “we wouldn’t be able to do that because it didn’t happen.”
