Where in the World Is Elon Musk? That’s the question every media outlet is asking about. Elon Musk has been absent from Twitter for ten straight days and no one knows why. The Tesla CEO and potential future owner of Twitter has been noticeably absent from the social platform since June 21, including on his birthday, June 28.
Up until June 21, Musk’s tweets were making headlines near-daily as he shared updates on the deal. But after ten days of absence from the popular social platform, Elon Musk is now on his longest stretch without posting in nearly five years.
His absence has also led to speculations that Musk’s been busy working on his $44 million deal and that his next tweet is going to be a major announcement that he now owns Twitter. The Wall Street Journal also reported yesterday that “the billionaire is trying to complete a planned $44 billion deal to buy the social-media platform.”
Musk’s absence has also caused some of his 100 million fans to start asking about him.

Early this week, Twitter’s board unanimously recommended that company shareholders vote in support of Musk’s $44 billion buyout bid to acquire the platform. But Insider reported that Musk told Twitter he needs more raw data from Twitter to determine the number of bot accounts on the platform.
Musk’s attorneys reportedly sent a letter to Twitter and said the data it recently provided to Musk was “insufficient” and that he could not perform his own tests on it.
Meanwhile, according to The New York Times, the social platform said “Twitter has and will continue to cooperatively share information with Mr. Musk to consummate the transaction in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement. We believe this agreement is in the best interest of all shareholders. We intend to close the transaction and enforce the merger agreement at the agreed price and terms.”
