Musk lashes out at Tesla Cybertruck designers and demands 'Lego-like' panels

Elon Musk does not want to leave a trace of Twitter. There is no blue bird, there is no tweeting either and it has not even kept the name of the social network, now called X. He has also launched a paid version, limiting the actions of users who continue in the free version.
