Elon Musk May Have Accidentally Revealed His Secret Burner Account Where He Pretends to Be His Son and It's Bonkers
Twitter has become a cesspool of madness lately—all thanks to the outrageous decisions made by Twitter CEO Elon Musk and the subsequent changes on the social media platform. After the recent Twitter Blue and verification tick fiasco, it seems that Musk has accidentally revealed his secret burner account on Twitter. People took notice of Musk’s potential secret account when he shared a screenshot of his own account with the intention of using it to demonstrate how to use Twitter’s subscription features. The Twitter tool enables people to charge other people an extra fee for accessing their bonus content. But we guess Musk wasn’t too careful while sharing a screengrab and Twitterati's hawk-like eyes shared what they discovered.
You’d never guess it’s me!— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 24, 2023
The screengrab shared by Musk suggested an alternative account with the profile picture of a child holding a replica of SpaceX’s Starship spacecraft. Musk might be running more than one account since this Twitter feature allows people to switch between two or more profiles quickly. When the account of @DogeDesigner, one of Musk’s avid fan accounts posted about the billionaire operating a secret account, Musk tweeted in reply: “You’d never guess it’s me!” Looks like the man isn’t lying after all. We would have never guessed that Musk has an account on the side that he uses for god knows what.

Is this a real peon video?— Elon Test (@ErmnMusk) November 13, 2022
Netizens rushed in to play detective and quickly unearth the supposed burner account of Musk called @ErmnMusk with over 40 thousand followers. @SaeedDiCaprio posted a tweet exposing Musk's probably side account and it went viral in no time. The strange account posted a range of weird tweets about random topics and even urged people to follow the account. It sent replies to accounts focused on cryptocurrency and Tesla and replied to tweets from Musk’s account as well. In some tweets, he appears to pretend to be his son and it's wild.
The bizarre profile also appears to role-play as a child and even mentions in a tweet that reads: “I will finally turn 3 on May 4th,” which corresponds with the birthdate of X Æ A-12, Musk’s son with singer Grimes. The image of the child in the Twitter profile appears to be of Musk’s son as well. It is an image that was probably not posted by anyone online before this and the Starship model the kid is holding recently opened for pre-orders on SpaceX’s website, per The Independent.
Do you like Japanese girls?— Elon Test (@ErmnMusk) November 13, 2022
Crypto is confusing— Elon Test (@ErmnMusk) November 13, 2022
The profile also tweeted with a complaint of “not having enough followers” and it even replies to sexually suggestive content on Twitter. One strange reply was on the tweet of Bitcoin advocate Michael Saylor where the pseudo-Musk profile questioned if he likes “Japanese girls.” Another tweet was a cryptic reply to a tweet that gave a funny spin to an adult website’s content. The @ErmnMusk account was apparently created on November 2022 which is shortly after Musk took over the social media platform. Musk hasn't made make any direct comments on all the speculations about his alternate profile. Well, looks like we don't have much detective work to do here anymore, echoing a comment by @zydreth, "...but I don't know and I don't care."

The name even sounds like an "ermagersh" version of Elon. Never expose billionaires to reddit, they will become criminally unfunny.— corom 🌹 (@coromd) April 25, 2023

My guess is it’s his test account for age-appropriate content on Twitter for children which has probably never been prioritized before,— zydreth🦉 (@zydreth) April 25, 2023
