Examples of these tweets include those involving the Dogecoin, which went up a lot after a mention of the tycoon before filing SNL. Or when he announced that Tesla would first accept Bitcoins, then abandon them for environmental reasons.

The most recent of these tweets is about a meme about a breakup, which made one think of his own 56 million followers that he was about to sell the one and a half billion Bitcoin his company bought. The value of the cryptocurrency is dropped 7% that day.

Anonymous thinks this behavior is irresponsible, having caused many people to lose money who have invested in cryptocurrencies. The hacker told Musk that “while working people see their dreams liquidated for your outbursts, you keep mocking them with memes from one of your millionaire mansions.” The video ends with a threat: “You may think you’re the smartest person in the room, but you’ve just found your rival. We are Anonymous. We are Legion. Wait for us“.
