Elon Musk Says Twitter Won't Let Him Change His New Name — Dogecoin Creator Has This Solution

Elon Musk said Wednesday that he changed his name to “Mr. Tweet” on Twitter and now the platform won’t let him change it back.

What Happened: The Twitter and Tesla CEO tweeted, “Changed my name to Mr. Tweet, now Twitter won’t let me change it back.”

Financial Times’ San Francisco correspondent Patrick McGee said on Twitter that the lawyer for investors suing Musk accidentally called Musk “Mr. Tweet” while grilling him.

Dogecoin DOGE/USD co-creator Billy Markus jokingly replied to Musk: "you should complain to elon musk about it.”
