Elon Musk has been in the news for an array of things. However, his love for Dogecoin [DOGE] and his recent interest in taking over Twitter seem to have put him under the spotlight. Musk’s Twitter bid has been quite controversial. While several have been rooting for Musk to take over Twitter, a few others have been dreading Donald Trump’s potential return. Meanwhile, Dogecoin’s co-founder Jackson Palmer believes that Musk might destroy the social media platform.

During a recent interview, the Dogecoin co-founder addressed Musk’s Twitter takeover. He went on to say,

“The second I heard he was going to make a bid, I thought that he intended to destroy Twitter. I think if you look at what’s happening, that’s what’s happening. He was sowing a huge amount of discord and distrust on the platform, and there are huge amounts of churn and attrition from staff.“

Musk’s Twitter purchase has been encountering a lot of hiccups. With constant delays, several remain dubious about this Twitter deal falling through. Elaborating on the same, Palmer further added that Musk was possibly trying to “dismantle all trust or maybe he’s delusional enough to think he can build an alternative.”

Elon Musk and Dogecoin-creator’s bizarre history

While talking about Musk’s Twitter takeover, Palmer recalled his very first interaction with the Tesla CEO. Palmer reportedly messaged Musk on Twitter about a script that would automatically detect a crypto scam on an individual’s Twitter account. The bot would then report the scam to the social media giant as well. Palmer went on to share this with several other crypto influencers. Musk wanted in too.

Elon Musk went on to emerge as one of the most influential personalities in the crypto-verse. Therefore, scammers have repeatedly used Musk as the face of their fake “crypto giveaways.” Palmer’s script seemed to be the right choice for Musk. However, the Dogecoin co-founder revealed that Musk did not understand coding as well as he claimed. He reportedly asked Palmer, “How do I run this Python script?”

Further talking about the same, Palmer went on to label Musk a “grifter.” He added,

“He’s a grifter, he sells a vision in hopes that he can one day deliver what he’s promising, but he doesn’t know that. He’s just really good at pretending he knows.”

As Palmer continues to call out Musk, the centibillionaire went on further elevate his love for Dogecoin by accepting it at SpaceX.
