The Daily Beast: What It’s Like When Elon Musk’s Twitter Mob Comes After You

The Daily Beast: What It’s Like When Elon Musk’s Twitter Mob Comes After You. “Female journalists who cover Elon Musk have the same personal rule: Mention his name on Twitter at your peril. That’s because there is an army—mostly young, mostly white, almost entirely men—that marches behind him. These MuskBros, as we call them, make it their mission to descend on women who criticize Musk, and tear them to pieces. I know, because it has happened to me. More than once.” To be clear, Elon Musk himself has tweeted against this kind of behavior and while he’s sometimes acerbic in his tweets I can’t find any indication that he’s abusive. I can find no evidence that he is encouraging or initiating these attacks.
