I’ve done it but I’m simple local radio DJ. I tweeted out my personal cell and have even given on the air! DUH! But when you are the person we think is going to get us to MARS? Yeah, expect more from you.
CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, Elon Musk was trying to get in touch with John Carmack, the chief technology officer at Oculus, Facebook’s virtual reality project. But instead of sending Carmack a private message, Musk just tweeted his cell to all of his over 16 million followers!
“Do you have a sec to talk? My cell is…” the tweet read before listing a phone number. Musk’s tweet was quickly deleted but not before some caught the mistake. CNBC called the number and heard the recorded message from the video game “God of War.” The recording is one of two secret codes in the game, “By the Gods you’ve done it. Somehow you’ve found your way here to me. I offer you my congratulations and my respect.” Wow, on my phone message I have my dog howling.
On the upside, it’s nice to know even billionaire’s make some bonehead mistakes like us mortals. Yes. ~grace
