This "break" from Twitter by Musk comes after several of his tweets have fueled the rise of stocks in various stocks. For example, the businessman helped the rise of the game sales company GameStop after sharing the link to a Reddit page where several investors are coordinating to boost the value of the company.

Musk even sparked the rise of the meme-based cryptocurrency Doge Coin with one of his posts and by adding the hashtag #bitcoin to his Twitter bio.
