On August 27, Elon Musk responded to a tweet on LinkedIn from X user Ian Zelbo. “Is there anything worse than LinkedIn?” tweeted Zelbo. The tweet gained popularity and attracted a lot of attention. People occasionally offer me LinkedIn links, but the cringe factor is so great that I just can’t bring myself to use it, so I ask for the CV or bio to be sent by email instead, Elon Musk wrote in response to this tweet. We’ll make sure LinkedIn’s competition, X, is hip.
Elon Musk’s reply to the X user’s tweet garnered more than 1.8 lakh views. Numerous users also expressed their interest in the job hiring feature mentioned by Elon Musk. An individual wrote, “The worst part is people just straight up making things up! I’ve seen a lot of people use titles on LinkedIn that don’t even exist and couldn’t be further from what they actually do at the company like – being responsible for something doesn’t make you the ‘head of’ it. Lol.”
“LinkedIn is so cringe that I wonder why people keep using it, and some even post there – to be honest most posts there must be marketing stuff addressing the void,” expressed another.
A third remarked, “X is the future. It’s making all of these other social media sites obsolete.”
“Never had LinkedIn – very interested in a XedIn or Xonnect,” shared a fourth.
