Less than 24 hours after Elon Musk took over twitter, the media was trolled by two men pretending to be engineers who had just been laid off.
No, Rahul Ligma does not work at twitter. The fact that he was holding a cardboard box with a copy of Michelle Obama’s book in it should have been the media’s first clue that this was a joke. The other big clue should have been this comment, from “Daniel Johnson”: “I even own a Tesla, man. I’m a big fan of clean energy, climate change, even free speech too.”
The press, of course, ran with it.
