Imagine waking up with groggy eyes just to look at your phone beside you and see that Elon Musk has started following you. Well, before your imagination flares up, let us tell you that Tesla CEO and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk started following one of his fans named Rebecca.

Meanwhile, another Twitter user thought that the "accidental tap" was done by the tech billionaire's son X Æ A-Xii. “That must have been little X messing around,” he wrote. Mr Musk was quick with his reply and said, “He does like to play with my phone. There are many confusing videos he has taken.”

As Elon Musk's recent reply to the woman's tweet gained more popularity across the Twitter platform, another user could not just wrap his head around how anyone could accidentally tap and follow someone. He wrote, "Takes a couple of taps to make it to the follow tap."
How does one accidentally tap and follow? Takes a couple taps to make it to the follow tap. Hmmm 😂— Jason Rambo (@Jason_Rambo) July 30, 2021
Out of thousands of reactions, some of the Twitter users took the whole "follow-unfollow" event as a mark to show that the Tesla CEO did not like the publicity this time and that the woman (Rebecca) should have not made the news public in the first place. One of the netizens called it an "opportunity lost, all for likes."
Shouldn't have tweeted this. Should have just DMd him your business Proposal. You should have used it to send a business proposal to him, opportunity lost, all for likes. 😭— Simba (@iNkosi_uSimba) July 31, 2021
