  • A conversation of Twitter between Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk got a lot of attention

  • Later in the conversation, Jack Dorsey challenged Musk to have a discussion at a Bitcoin event

A Twitter conversation between Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Tesla CEO Elon Musk went viral. It wasn’t just a normal conversation, and it ended with the Twitter CEO, challenging Musk to have a conversation about Bitcoin.

The conversation took an interesting turn

It all started with a tweet from Jack Dorsey. He shared a post about the Bitcoin development community. His tweet explained the community and included a link inviting his followers to a Bitcoin event. The tweet got a lot of replies and apparently, Elon Musk, decided to comment on it as well. In a bizarre response to Dorsey’s announcement, Musk tweeted “Bitcurios?”

The Twitter CEO then challenged Musk to a conversation/debate with him at the event. “You can share all your curiosities,” Jack Dorsey added. Elon Musk seemed stunned by the request, responding with a noncommittal “LMFAO OMG.” Dorsey, on the other hand, doubled down and challenged Musk to “have THE talk.” To which Musk responded with “For the Bitcurious? Very well, then, let’s do it”. Looking at this conversation, If Elon Musk keeps his promise it is  very likely that he will be attending to the Thebword event, which is being held to discuss the current state of Bitcoin and destigmatize the mainstream narratives about Bitcoin. Some speakers of the event will be  Founder, CEO and CIO of ARK Invest, Cathie Wood, Co-Founder and CEO of Blockstream Adam Black and Jack Dorsey himself.

After his chat with Dorsey, Musk decided he wasn’t done with Twitter.

Later that day, Musk decided it was time to post some more tweets about Bitcoin and its community. He started with the question “How many Bitcoin maxis does it take to screw in a lightbulb?” and then tweeted “That’s not funny!” – Bitcoin maxis”. Notably, Elon Musk ‘s latest tweets have not affected the price of Bitcoin like his other tweets did, which is seen by many crypto investors on Twitter as a positive thing for the market.
