That happening, without any explanation of what was going on, confused many. That was, in fact, their strategy to go viral online to prepare the world for their second version. Elon didn’t hesitate and took on twitter to post: “Had to been done ur welcome”
With Elon Musk’s tweet, people thought he had bought the game and deleted it. Why would he do that?

Of course that all dissipated, when the second version was released, but Elon Musk surely had a kick watching many go crazy over his tweet.
