Elon Musk Jokes About Smoking Weed Before Twitter Board Meetings

Elon Musk is already joking about his lofty ideas for Twitter’s upcoming board meetings after taking a 9 percent stake in the embattled social media platform.

The eccentric billionaire posted a meme Thursday with a screenshot of himself smoking a joint during an infamous appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast.

“Twitter’s next board meeting will be lit,” the meme reads.

Musk, 50, caused quite a stir in September 2018 when he smoked weed and drank whiskey during a lengthy chat on the podcast with Rogan.

The appearance sparked the creation of a proprietary meme format, scrutiny from federal officials, and eventually an apology from Musk, who Reportedly to SpaceX employees that the move was “not wise” as the government contractor maintains a drug-free workplace.

Musk has pledged to push for positive changes at Twitter following his nearly $3 billion stock purchase — which came after he repeatedly blasted the company for its content moderation practices. He is the largest single shareholder of Twitter.

In another post, Musk shared a meme that humorously linked the sale of his first software company, Zip2, to a series of falling dominoes that eventually led to Twitter adding a long-awaited edit button.

Musk had asked his Twitter followers if they supported the introduction of an edit button. Twitter later confirmed that the feature was in development — although officials said it was in the works before Musk referenced it.

The billionaire secured a seat on Twitter’s board of directors until at least 2024 in an agreement that also prevented him from buying more than 14.9% of the company.

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal praised Musk’s addition to the board – despite the fact that it could result in significant changes at the company.

Through discussions with Elon over the past few weeks, we realized he would bring great value to our board,” Agrawal tweeted earlier this week.

“He’s both an ardent supporter and intense critic of the service, which is exactly what we need on @Twitter and in the boardroom to make us stronger over the long term. Welcome Elon!” he added.

Meanwhile, experts have warned that Musk likely broke the law by failing to disclose his stake in Twitter to the SEC once it exceeded 5%.
