Elon Musk claims he is ‘alien’ in Twitter exchange when asked about his empire

Elon Musk says he is an alien two years after denying suspicions that he hails from another planet.

The SpaceX and Tesla founder, 49, made the jaw-dropping claim in response to a question about how he runs so many massive companies at the same time.

Musk's answer sent fans into a frenzy with one Twitter user describing his announcement as the "Worst kept secret" and another commented: "We knew it already that you are an alien."

Tech start-up mogul Kunal Shah teased out the quote from the world's richest man by writing on Twitter: "Elon musk may end up running 4+ 500 billion companies simultaneously at a relatively young age.

"What I want to really understand: how does he do it? How does he manage context switching? How does he design his Org? So many questions.

"@elonmusk: answer if you see this, dark lord."

Swooping in to put Shah's mind at rest on the subject, Musk simply replied on Friday: "I’m an alien."

What was seen as a joke by most has in fact been interpreted by some as a brazen confession to his real being.

One follower replied: "Is that why you're building a Spaceship … to get back to your home planet?"

"Coincidence that Elon said on Rogan that Aliens could just make themselves known if they wanted to? I like this not so subtle approach," another commented.

A third wrote: "I knew it from the beginning that's why you wanna go back your home (Mars)."

In April 2019 Musk was filmed at the World Government Summit saying: "I think this is one of the great questions in physics and philosophy, is where are the aliens?

"Maybe they're among us I don't know. Some people think I'm an alien. Not true, not true."

The clip shared in reaction to his latest announcement was captioned: "Hey @elonmusk here you said that you're not an alien, now you have different statement… So, what's the truth?"
