Elon Musk wants to make an app that allows drivers to look at Twitter on their car screen

Elon Musk wants to make an app that allows drivers to look at Twitter on their car screen

Many weren’t too fond of the idea.

Elon Musk has revealed he wants to launch an app that would enable people to view X/Twitter on their car screen.

You might even be able to tweet from the comfort of your Tesla in the future.

The South African recently posted his latest zany business idea to the social media platform.

“We will make an app allowing you to see the latest from X on your car screen,” he wrote.

However, many weren’t too fond of the notion, with some saying it would serve as a distraction while driving.

One person wrote: “He is constantly innovating new ways to kill people with cars. it's truly remarkable.”

Another said: “Entering a clearly marked crosswalk at a four-way stop only to be flattened by a malfunctioning Tesla on autopilot while the driver scrolls an incel blue check ‘how would you open thread’.”

A third commented: “Bad idea from the site where posts are consistently so bad they make you want to crash into a telephone pole on purpose.”

While another said: “Sorry Officer, I was just looking at some sweet Warframe R34 fanart on my dash... wanna watch?"

Safety is one of those things that has plagued Musk in the past.

Just ask the four million people who’ve had their Teslas recalled in the past year alone.

This is just the latest proposal from the SpaceX founder, who rebranded Twitter as X in July.

Musk’s impromptu decision to change Twitter’s logo came after the 52-year-old posted: “If a good enough X logo is posted tonight, we’ll make go live worldwide tomorrow.”

He then followed this up with another post explaining that, in time, he would be getting rid of the ‘Twitter brand’ altogether.

This marked the most significant change he made to the platform since his acquisition in October 2022.

“And soon we shall bid adieu to the Twitter brand and, gradually, all the birds,” he informed Twitter users.

The company name has also been changed to X Corp, with reports that the billionaire hopes to create a ‘super app’ - named X - similar to China’s WeChat, offering messaging, social media and payments into one app.

"Twitter was acquired by X Corp both to ensure freedom of speech and as an accelerant for X, the everything app. This is not simply a company renaming itself, but doing the same thing," he added.
