Musk Greets Indian Followers With Namaste, Meets Derision
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (IANS) – Elon Musk on November 22 greeted his millions of Indian followers with ‘Namaste’ as he paused blue service with verification again which was scheduled to be launched on November 29.
“I am having a great time. Namaste,” tweeted Musk, as he understands that India is a key market for Twitter and several Indian and Indian American software engineers are working at the company.
He also said that he is holding off the relaunch of Blue Verified until there is high confidence of stopping impersonation. “Will probably use different color check for organizations than individuals,” said Musk.
On his Namaste tweet, several followers also greeted him along with sarcasm.
“He wants Indian engagement on twitter,” posted one follower.
“Looks like Indians on your team are teaching you well!” posted another.
“Namaskar,” said another follower.
Indian American Sriram Krishnan, a former Twitter executive, is helping Elon Musk make changes at Twitter which has been tumultuous to say the least.
