Elon Musk shows that he sleeps with two guns next to his bed

Elon Musk shared a picture of his bedside table on Twitter, including some interesting protection options

Elon Musk has revealed that he sleeps at night surrounded by Diet Coke cans and – perhaps more surprisingly – two guns. And It's not the first time he's shown off some of his more unusual items, as you can see below:

Yes, you’d imagine that the world’s richest man might have something a little more – well – sophisticated and subtle for his personal protection, but we also know what he’s like, right?

The owner of Twitter shared a picture on his very own social media platform that featured the two firearms sitting on his bedside table.

Also present is four empty cans of Diet Coke – caffeine free, of course.

One of them looks like it might be quite an old one, being stuck in a presentation case showing George Washington crossing the Delaware River, but the other one looks like it might be real and ready for action.

We can’t be sure whether the guns are real or props, but it’s still an interesting detail for Elon to have shared with his millions of followers.

What’s more, he clearly has a situation with a lack of coasters as there are horrible rings on the table that show where his cans of fizzy drink have been sitting.

It’s all a bit teenage bedroom, isn’t it?

Musk did later tweet to address his lack of coasters, stating that there is ‘no excuse’ for it.

What would your mother say, Elon?

At the minute, Musk seems to be based out of San Francisco whilst he concentrates on getting Twitter moulded into his own image.

And there’s not been a dull moment since he took over, to say the least.

First he sacked a load of people before rehiring some of them, before reinstating Donald Trump on a whim after a poll on his own personal account.

He has also encouraged the remaining staff to be prepared to work ‘hardcore’ and endure ‘long hours at high intensity’.

If they don’t want to do that, they can leave, he said.

There’s also been a whole upheaval surrounding the blue verification ticks on the platform, with Musk announcing that there will be a subscription fee to pay for such an accreditation.

Elon has certainly had an interesting time since taking over at Twitter.

That basically means that anyone can pay to be verified these days, somewhat diluting the point of it all in the first place.

What do we know though, eh?

He’s also announced a ‘general amnesty’ to suspended accounts ‘provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam’.

Musk has positioned himself as a free speech champion on Twitter, although exactly what form that takes is unclear.

As ever, we’ll just have to wait and see how it all shakes down at the end.

It’ll be interesting, that’s for sure.
