His tweet was a response to Facebook’s head of Artificial Intelligence, Jerome Pesenti, who called out Musk, saying "Elon Musk has no idea what he is talking about when he talks about Artificial Agency."
Musk is always vocal about his opinions on Twitter (TWTR) - Get Twitter, Inc. Report. And when its comes to social media giant, Facebook (FB ) - Get Meta Platforms Inc. Class A Report, well, he doesn't have good rapport with it. Whenever Facebook makes headlines for all the wrong reasons, Musk is always ready to slam the platform.
On February 8, Musk tweeted "#DeleteFacebook It's lame” when comedian Sacha Baron Cohen suggested that Facebook needs to be regulated.
Not only this, when it was revealed that Amazon (AMZN) - Get Amazon.com, Inc. Report CEO Jeff Bezos' phone was hacked using WhatsApp messenger, Musk took to Twitter - on February 6 - mocking WhatsApp suggesting it 'comes with free phone hack.'
Musk has also deleted the official Facebook pages of his companies, Tesla and SpaceX, when Cambridge Analytica data scandal broke out in 2018.
Even though, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg publicly has not personally commented on Musk, however in 2017, he indirectly took a dig at Musk's warning against Artificial Intelligence.
"I think people who are naysayers and try to drum up these doomsday scenarios — I just, I don't understand it. It's really negative and in some ways I actually think it is pretty irresponsible," said Zuckerberg.
In response, Musk said that Zuckerberg's understanding of it (AI) was limited.
