Mark Zuckerberg Breaks 11-Year Twitter Silence with a Jab at Elon Musk as Threads App Launches

In a surprising move, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta, took to Twitter after an 11-year hiatus, aiming a playful dig at his tech rival Elon Musk. The tweet coincided with the launch of Zuckerberg’s Threads app in New Zealand, which is positioned as a direct competitor to Musk’s Twitter, offering a text-based version of Meta’s Instagram platform.

Zuckerberg’s tweet featured a popular Spider-Man meme that highlighted the similarities between Threads and Twitter, signaling his entry into the social media rivalry. This development comes amidst reports of Zuckerberg and Musk’s potential UFC face-off, capturing headlines with their unexpected agreement.

UFC President Dana White further fueled the speculation, confirming that he has had conversations with both Zuckerberg and Musk, revealing their genuine interest in the bout. White believes that the potential fight between the tech moguls could surpass the financial success of the historic Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight, projecting unlimited potential for revenue.

Interestingly, Zuckerberg’s involvement in mixed martial arts adds another layer of intrigue to the possible showdown. In May, the Facebook founder shared his participation in his first jiu-jitsu tournament, showcasing his dedication to the sport.

As the rivalry between Zuckerberg and Musk continues to make waves, the launch of Threads and the resurfacing of their potential UFC clash have sparked excitement and curiosity among their followers. The tech titans’ next moves are eagerly anticipated, leaving the world wondering if they will eventually step into the octagon to settle their differences.

Elon Musk Agrees To Join Forces with UFC Legend GSP to Fight Mark Zuckerberg in Epic Cage Match Showdown

Elon Musk has agreed to train with former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre (GSP) in preparation for a potential cage match against Mark Zuckerberg.

The Twitter exchange between Musk and GSP began when the retired UFC superstar expressed his admiration for Musk and offered to be his training partner for the fight against Zuckerberg. GSP, widely regarded as one of the greatest UFC fighters in history, holds championships in two different weight classes and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2020.

Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and owner of Twitter, had initially challenged Zuckerberg to a cage match on Twitter. Zuckerberg later accepted the challenge, and UFC President Dana White confirmed that both billionaires were “absolutely dead serious” about the fight. White even speculated that the match could be the “biggest fight ever in the history of the world” and break pay-per-view records while raising millions for charity. Musk took to Twitter to accept GSP’s offer, writing:

“Ok, let’s do it.”

Musk, who admitted to not regularly working out, will now have the opportunity to train with GSP, who frequently shares workout and training videos despite being retired. The idea for the cage match arose from a report suggesting that Zuckerberg’s company, Meta, was developing a Twitter-like application to compete with Musk’s Twitter platform.

The potential bout between Musk and Zuckerberg has generated significant attention and interest, with fans eagerly awaiting further developments.
