Elon Musk Criticizes How Twitter Uses Engineering Resources

Tesla CEO Elon Musk criticized Twitter Friday regarding its new non-fungible token (NFT) profile picture service. “This is annoying,” Musk wrote. “Twitter is spending engineering resources on this bs while crypto scammers are throwing a spambot block party in every thread!?”

Twitter launched the NFT profile picture service Thursday to allow users to set up an NFT as their profile picture. NFT profile pictures are displayed with a special hexagon shape. “Right now Twitter only supports static image NFTs (JPEG, PNG) minted on the Ethereum blockchain,” the company clarified.

Musk’s tweet received many comments. Some agreed with the Tesla CEO that Twitter should utilize its resources better, emphasizing the need to crack down on crypto scammers and spambots on the platform.

Adam Singer, a former Google marketing manager, concurred with Musk, tweeting:

Elon is right on this. Twitter’s product team needs better prioritization on what’s actually important for user experience.

He added, “Incidentally, every Elon Tweet comment section is an easy honeypot they could use to nuke a non-trivial amount of spammers/grifters (yet they do nothing).”

However, some counter-attacked Musk for using Tesla’s engineering resources on cryptocurrency, particularly by accepting the meme cryptocurrency dogecoin (DOGE).

“Some people feel the same way about cryptocurrency,” one told Musk. Another wrote, “Tesla is wasting resources in crypto BS too.” A third commented, “Is Tesla promoting Doge isn’t annoying?” A fourth pointed out:

Elon [is] getting absolutely donked on for criticizing Twitter spending resources on NFT integration while doing the exact same thing with his company & DOGE.

Musk’s electric car company accepted bitcoin early last year but stopped due to environmental concerns. The company began accepting dogecoin payments on Jan. 14 for some merchandise.
