New York, Nov 21: Twitter chief Elon Musk poked fun at US TV channel CBS for returning to Twitter within less than a 48-hour hiatus due to ‘uncertainty’ with the micro-blogging platform under his management.
It must be noted that two days ago, CBS had announced that it would suspend all its Twitter usage, however, the TV channel in its latest tweet said it is resuming its activity on Twitter.
Well, it was nice to get a break from your misinformation for a couple of days

While Musk’s Twitter revamp right now is facing its most challenging weeks, things do seem to be calming down at the social media company.
Earlier, the Tesla boss had shown the door to top executives and half of the company’s 7,500 employees after he formally acquired Twitter. In India too, Musk had fired CEO Parag Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal, and legal affairs and policy chief Vijaya Gadde.
