Elon Musk To Make 'Tesla Phone' If Apple And Google App Stores Ban Twitter; Internet Explodes, Users Say It ‘Would Be A Literal Burner Phone’
The world has been changing for good, and Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover has seemingly hastened the process. While many have expressed their disappointment over the alterations decreed by the new Twitter Boss, he has yet again made stirring claims after inviting netizens' wrath. 

Musk suggested that he would make an "alternative phone" if Apple and Google boot Twitter from their app stores. The tweet comes in amidst the speculation of him in the process of making a 'tELONphone.'

The conversation sparked when a journalist, Liz Wheeler, posted a question to Muks asking, "If Apple & Google boot Twitter from their app stores, @elonmusk should produce his own smartphone. Half the country would happily ditch the biased, snooping iPhone & Android. The man builds rockets to Mars, a silly little smartphone should be easy, right?." 




To this, Musk responded, "I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone."

Later, the journalist posted a poll asking her followers "Would you switch to a tELONphone? Vote yes or no with your best pun for a name below." This poll has garnered 42,501 votes so far.

The users also suggested a few interesting names for the phone including TwiPhone, Starlink Global Phone, the PocketRocket, Mind meld communicator, SpitePhone, Mone Phone.

Meanwhile, Tesla cars have been in controversy in recent times.

In September, Reuters was sued for misleading the public by falsely advertising its Autopilot and Full Self-Driving features. The report also explained that Briggs Matsko, the named plaintiff, said Tesla did this to "generate excitement" about its vehicles, gain attention and sell them to the public or even attract investors.

Reportedly, in an incident that occurred on September 15, 600 Gallons of Water Per Minute of Help was required to bring the fire under control. The vehicle was several car lengths away from other vehicles and posed no immediate danger to them. 




On November 16, a tesla also burst into flames at Morris Town. 

"In total, approximately 12,000 gallons of water was utilized. To give you an idea of the severity, crews can normally extinguish a fully involved vehicle fire with approximately 500 gallons or less,"

The internet exploded over Musk’s statement and a user said, "If Elon Musk made a Tesla phone, you can bet there would be a Russian hack included." Another added, "a tesla phone would be a literal burner phone," A tweet read, "Remember kids, being able to roast marshmallows on your Tesla Phone is a feature, not a bug." "I ain’t “burning” for a Tesla phone," claimed a user. A user added, "a Tesla phone would connect direct to star link satellites and… wait."

A user stated, "When your Tesla phone burns your leg through your pocket and you run out to your car to drive yourself to the hospital." "Tesla Phone. taking on big tech," claimed another. "Oh cool. I'm sure everyone on Twitter will be cool just to wait 5+ years while you develop an entirely new phone. LMAO. Imagine a phone that's as combustible as a Tesla," wrote a user.
