Why is Elon Musk spending his time on Twitter and not on a mission to Mars?

I have been watching Elon Musk for many years. I’ve been watching him more than ever in recent months, especially since he decided – apparently on a whim – to buy the social network Twitter.

He is one of the richest men in the world, and sometimes the richest among them, as it depends on the price of Tesla shares, which are his main financial assets, and a host of other high-profile companies under his wing, including SpaceX , Starlink and Neuralink.

The man is also an object of interest to the world.

Then of course there is his personal story, the tall 51-year-old billionaire with 10 children, ranging in age from one to 18. His first son died when he was just 10 weeks old.
