Musk changed the platform’s name to X in July. In May of 2022, Musk tweeted “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it’s been nice knowin’ ya.” MrBeast replied “If that happens can I have Twitter” to which Musk replied “Ok.”

Then, in December of 2022, MrBeast randomly tweeted “Can I be the new Twitter CEO?” Musk’s response was, “It’s not out of the question.” He didn’t get the job, but it was nice that he was “at least considered.”
