Elon Musk, one Friday morning, dropped a Bitcoin Bomb on Twitter this time again. In an innuendo-filled tweet, the CEO of both SpaceX and Tesla joked that Bitcoin is “*not* my safe word.”

Elon Musk’s tweet has dependably gone viral by Crypto Twitter standards. It has garnered 6,960 Retweets 89,581 Likes as of the time of writing this article, and gaining hundreds of more likes per minute with each passing minute.
This tweet by Musk, owing to it coming straight out of the left field, has unbelievably riled up the crypto community.
Bitcoin 2020, the Twitter account, responded to Elon Musk’s random tweet with a thoughtful emoji, to which the chief executive of Tesla and SpaceX responded with a winky face.
The Moon, an analyst of cryptocurrency world, took the tweet as a great opportunity to promote Bitcoin (BTC) to Musk’s 30 million followers. He replied to his quip by posting his thesis about what makes Bitcoin so valuable today.
How can Peter McCormack be left behind?
The prominent Bitcoin industry podcaster tried to poke Musk into joining him on his podcast for a special Bitcoin session.
The Bitcoin price has not reacted to this tweet. In case Elon Musk tweeted “buy BTC,” then maybe that would have created a different story, but he seemingly can’t do that owing to his previous tweets, like the infamous “Taking Tesla Private at $420” tweet.
Am considering taking Tesla private at $420. Funding secured.
