    It is a fake twitter account that pretends to be Elon Musk inventions that he is thinking about while bored in his free time.
    But it is really hilarious. It has over 18,000 followers and has been mentioned a few times in the news.

    I've successful gotten my time machine to work but only for 2 decades. The 2030s which I call Future Mode, and the 1980s aka Depeche Mode.

    I've hit a wall for new ideas this morning guys. Lucky I was in a Model S so I'm completely safe.

    If there's one guy on the face of the Earth who isn't bored, it would be Elon Musk. I guess you could say that he opened himself up for this kind of silliness by being forthright, unlike other luminaries in his league who tend to speak publicly only when they can control the message. Who would have believed the Hyperloop could be a real idea with proven science behind it? The fact is, he keeps delivering on his promises of a brighter future. I think this humor would be a lot funnier if the target really was a poser who takes himself too seriously.

    It's still funny :biggrin: ... and I wouldn't be surprised if Elon thinks so too.

    I don't see the parody as insulting at all to Elon Musk. A lot of the "inventions" posted by @BoredElonMusk are really clever and definitely outside the box type of thinking. It is sort of honoring Elon by implying he comes up with this stuff in his spare time.

    I agree with Palpatine on this one.

    Agree. Elon can also be self-deprecating with his humor.

    He shouldn't be too bored. He's made a couple hundred million dollars in the last two days.
