The rift between Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, and Elon Musk, owner of Twitter, is widening daily, and the introduction of Instagram Threads by Meta only adds fuel to the fire for the two tech billionaires.

Given that Musk and Zuckerberg have been at odds since 2016, it is not surprising that they are at loggerheads once more, especially after the launch of Threads, which is dubbed as ‘Twitter-Killer’. Recently, Musk challenged Zuckerberg to a cage match, to which the Meta CEO’s simple answer was asking for the location. But now, Musk’s latest jab at Zuckerberg has compelled the audience to ask the tech billionaires to stop.

Elon Musk calls Mark Zuckerberg a ‘c*ck’ and proposes a ‘d*ck measuring contest’

It is not shocking that Twitter owner Elon Musk is not happy with his audience taking a turn to rival Mark Zuckerberg’s recently launched Meta’s Instagram Threads, which is a Twitter-like app.

The rift between the two has just been escalating and Musk has taken to his official Twitter account to take jabs at Zuckerberg. In one such tweet, the Twitter owner replied, “Zuck is a c*ck”.

The post to which Musk replied featured a screenshot of a Threads conversation between Zuckerberg and a fast food chain, Wendy’s. They said, “Hey @zuck, you should go to space just to make him mad lol”. To which the Meta boss replied with a laughing emoji.

Musk did not stop at calling Zuckerberg a c*ck but also proposed a new contest between them which he tweeted on Sunday with an emoji of a ruler, “I propose a literal d*ck measuring contest.” This new contest idea comes after two weeks after Musk and Zuckerberg agreed to fight each other in a cage match.

Mark Zuckerberg’s Threads and Elon Musk’s Response

According to the website Techcrunch, the users on Threads have reached 100 million where as Twitter has about 250 million active users, but there has been controversy and technical problems since Musk overtook Twitter last year for $44 billion.

Reports have also suggested that Zuckerberg had decided to move up the planned launch of Threads to capitalize on Twitter’s recent chaos. Musk has now been interacting with a parody account @ElonMuskAOC which has about 400,000 followers and is often mistaken for Musk.  The Twitter owner, however, shared that so many people think that the parody account is his after the account tweeted, “I spent $44 billion on this app and now Lizard boy has just decided to hit copy and paste. It’s personal now. See you in the cage, Zuck.”

However, a user pointed out that Musk did not deny that Zuckerberg is a Lizard Boy, to which Musk joked, “Maybe it’s just a case of using too much moisturizer”. After the insults and a new contest were proposed, the parody account posted a screenshot while tweeting that, at that point, he could no longer keep track of which account he was tweeting from and the real Elon Musk said the same.

Elon Musk calls out Mark Zuckerberg; competition is good, cheating is not

According to reports online, the Twitter owner has confirmed that they are looking forward to take a legal action against META Chief Executive’s newly launched app Threads as it violates the intellectual property rights.

Elon Musk wrote in a reply to a tweet on Twitter Daily News that competition is fine, but cheating is not. Alex Spiro, Musk’s lawyer, has also reportedly written to Zuckerberg about Threads and accused him of unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property.

He wrote, “Twitter intends to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights, and demands that Meta take immediate steps to stop using any Twitter trade secrets or other highly confidential information”. Additionally, the lawyer of the Twitter owner claims in the letter that Zuckerberg had hired a large number of ex-Twitter employees who worked on building Threads, and some of the employees continue to have access to Twitter’s trade secrets and other highly confidential information and have improperly retained Twitter documents and electronic devices.

There are a few former Twitter employees at Meta, according to a source who spoke to Insider, but none of them are currently engaged in Threads development.
