Billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk has become legendary for his witty tweets that he routinely unleashes on the platform and a tweet in which he boasted of his gaseous prowess drew a boisterous response as well as what is quite possibly the “greatest proposed community note of all time” as users reacted.
A hands-on leader who regularly engages in conversation with users, the Tesla/SpaceX CEO felt inclined to weigh in on a user’s tweet soliciting input on the factoid “the average person farts 17 times a day,” asking, “how do you measure up?”
The “Chief Twit” leaped at the opportunity to brag about his own ability when it comes to firing off bursts of flatulence.
I can fart hard enough to inflate a car tire

The siblings’ commentary about his relieving intestinal pressure didn’t go over well with his mother who scolded him as moms tend to do.
Happy you and Elon are adding sophistication to Twitter https://t.co/bBJ4RyEmJf

Another user posted what would be “Possibly the greatest proposed Community Note of all time.”

Volume aside, your ability to depress the pin in the valve stem implies a level of control that leaves the whole world envious!

Harness that with a real Tesla Turbine. Add some decent magnets as the starter for a mercury toroidal wizzmoaginators inside a oxygenated crew capsule within the candy looking thing. Fire at thing up, get that thing choochin’. BLAMO! Off to Mars.

Whatever sins this platform may have, being boring is not one of them
