Elon Musk teased a possible Twitter competitor if he isn't forced to go through with the $44 billion deal.

Musk responded to a question on Twitter as to whether he'd launch his own site by simply tweeting"X.com" on Tuesday. The comment came after it was revealed that the billionaire had sold 7.92 million Tesla shares worth $6.9 billion ahead of the very real chance he could be forced to purchase Twitter.

"In the (hopefully unlikely) event that Twitter forces this deal to close *and* some equity partners don't come through, it is important to avoid an emergency sale of Tesla stock," Musk said about the sale on Twitter.

I like the x lander, just the letter x

If he does it a good headline will be "Have You Heard? 💩- Elon Musk Going Back To His X"

Wow this X.com domain must be the single most expensive and most valuable domain name in the world by far. Think about it:

- .com extension
- only a single letter, the shortest domain name possible
- in the alphabet probably this is the most valuable letter
- can be used for literally anything, in any industry
- works in all languages, it's truly global

I think 3 or 4 of the 1 letter .com's are still working, you can no longer register any, but the few that were are grandfathered in unless they expire, they won't be renewed. Musk is not an Internet guy, he was involved in Paypal early on, but his level of coding was doing a simple video game as a kid, he could hire coders, but, he's not a coder in any way.

He's a guy with too much money. Creating a new twitter is not a good investment unless he has some brilliant ideas for it, which I am sure he does not,

Hey, Elon. Finish that stupid "roblox" truck of yours before starting something else.

Elon Musk is self made... sure he came from an extremely wealthy family, sure he got billions and billions of tax-payer subsides to keep his company a float for more than a decade until they finally turned a profit...after further consideration maybe he is not that "self made".

I don't think Elon Musk really has any clue how hard running a social media site is. It seems like a lot of his views are quite naive.

Before buying Twitter he spoke about starting his own. I think he figured out that it's not easy to start so he went the buying route. Twitters censorship, especially one sided censorship was also part of a trigger.

Hi,

You probably won't believe it but it was my idea regarding Twitter alternative on xdotcom domain. It was my suggestion (to build his own social network on xdotcom) to Elon Musk on twitter a few months ago.

Tbh i think he will keeping this domain for Mars base/project (a new home for human race in 2050).

Hang on, I thought all of the cool kids were using xyz. I feel sure he will use x.xyz instead and drop x.com cause it's worthless...

He is the founder of Tesla apparently, even though he purchased it from another guy...

I dunno..think he paid about $10M to get it back. It's a great domain though.

Met the guy when I was doing some work for Tesla years back. He's ... weird...
