'Feels So Long Ago': Elon Musk Reacts To His Old Profile From 2012 On Twitter

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc., engaged in a moment of nostalgia, reflecting on his past on Twitter on Tuesday.

Musk commented, “Feels so long ago.”

Why It Matters: This comes amid significant operational changes at Tesla. Recent reports indicate that Musk has taken drastic measures at Tesla, including laying off over 10% of the company’s workforce. A social media post liked by Musk suggested he is re-entering “wartime CEO” mode, focusing on Tesla’s robotaxi project.

Moreover, the layoffs have prompted calls for clarity from industry analysts. Wedbush analyst Dan Ives has publicly demanded a rationale for the cost-cutting measures, especially following a quarter where Tesla saw a 20% drop in deliveries. The electric vehicle giant is under pressure to reassure investors and stakeholders about its future direction.

On Sunday, he also had a trip down memory lane, reacting to a 21-year-old profile that called him “The Six Million Dollar Man” when the tech billionaire’s space dreams were still in their infancy.
