Elon Musk Responds with a Single Emoji to CBS Rejoining Twitter After a Brief Absence
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, appeared to make fun of CBS on Sunday after it announced it was returning to Twitter following a temporary suspension due to security concerns. According to the news source, CBS News and Stations will resume their Twitter activity after pausing for the majority of the weekend to evaluate the “security issues.”
Musk responded to the post in his customarily succinct style, using the blushing “face with hand over mouth” emoji, which typically denotes cheeky laughter or embarrassment. One of the first significant media organizations to leave Twitter was CBS News as a result of warnings from Musk’s detractors that they would do the same if he acquired control of the firm.

During Friday’s edition of “CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell,” the network announced the change. In a segment titled “Twitter Turmoil,” CBS News national correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti covered the widespread resignations of workers who were offended by Elon Musk’s ultimatum to staff members last week, which demanded that they either commit to an “extremely hardcore” workload or quit the organization.
An angry former engineer who was fired for his dissatisfaction was quoted by CBS News as saying that the attitude at Twitter under Musk was “certainly a culture of dread and uncertainty, of anxiety.” Vigliotti noted the outlet’s choice to stop using Twitter in the middle of the piece.

He stated: “CBS News is stopping its participation on the social media site while it continues to monitor Twitter in light of the uncertainties surrounding it and out of an abundance of caution.” Gabriel Hays from Fox News contributed to this story.
