Elon Musk is pretty active on Twitter and regularly replies to people who tweet to him, but turns out his replies actually help him make more money as well. Yep, who would've thought that just his reply would encourage someone to buy a Tesla? But it's Elon Musk and anything related to him never fails to surprise us.
So, this all started back in October when professional Fortnite player Turner 'Tfue' Tenney tweeted to Elon Musk asking if he can help him get better internet. Pretty normal, right? People tweet to each other all the time. Elon even replied to him.
Yes— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 15, 2018
But, turns out that simple 'yes' meant a lot to Tfue and he promised to buy a Tesla just because Elon replied. I mean, Elon is a pretty busy person, of course, so it means a lot to get a reply from him.
I'm gonna buy a @Tesla now because you replied ðð»— Tfue (@TTfue) October 15, 2018
Fast forward three months and Tfue has lived up to his tweet from October and has bought a Tesla!January 15, 2019
He actually did it! I mean, we all know it's a great car and Tfue was probably planning on buying it anyway but with the tweets, it became one hell of a story about a car.
The best part, though, is that Elon again replied to him! Does this man just live on Twitter?
Glad you like it https://t.co/7FbQc0M9M5— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 15, 2019
But, does this second reply mean Tfue has to buy another car? I hope so, just because it'll be so funny.
Moreover, this also has the potential to turn into a new innovative sales strategy where Elon can just sell so many cars by just replying to people on Twitter.
