Tech titans Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg could be gearing up for a dramatic showdown, and the event will reportedly be live-streamed on X, formerly known as Twitter, as disclosed by Musk himself.
On Sunday, Musk took to Twitter, stating that he was “engaging in intense training throughout the day, preparing for the fight,” and added that any proceeds generated from the event would be donated to charity in support of veterans.
However, specific details about the potential fight have not been divulged by Musk at this time.
The feud between the two billionaire CEOs seemed to escalate in June when they apparently agreed to participate in a cage fight. The stakes were further raised when Zuckerberg’s company, Meta, launched Threads, a Twitter competitor, last month.
With Musk taking over Twitter in October 2022, the platform has witnessed numerous policy changes, technical challenges, and debates over its approach to handling harassment and hate speech. Threads, upon its release, was seen by some as a viable alternative capable of dethroning its rival. The platform gained significant initial success, even prompting a threat of a lawsuit from a lawyer representing Twitter.
Despite the social media buzz surrounding the potential face-off, neither Musk nor Zuckerberg has officially confirmed whether an agreement has been reached. CNN has reached out to both Twitter and Meta for comment but has yet to receive a response.
