Elon Musk’s Clubhouse invitation to Putin came to zilch
The Kremlin said on Tuesday that an invitation from Tesla boss Elon Musk for President Vladimir Putin to join him for a chat on social network Clubhouse had come to nothing and that Moscow had not received a response after seeking further details.
The chief executive officer of Tesla Inc. and SpaceX tweeted Feb. 14 in English and Russian to the Kremlin’s official Twitter account, asking if the Russian president wanted to join him for a conversation on Clubhouse.
Musk last month invited Putin to join him for a chat on Clubhouse, a proposal that the Kremlin described as very interesting, thought it said at the time it needed to hear more details. On Tuesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters they had not received any response, however, and that the matter had probably been a misunderstanding.
The Kremlin thinks Elon Musk’s invitation to Vladimir Putin to chat in the popular Clubhouse app was a “misunderstanding” after the billionaire never responded to a follow-up query, spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.
“Apparently there was some kind of misunderstanding,” Peskov told reporters. “Most likely, this matter is exhausted,” Peskov said the matter was now probably closed.
At the time, Peskov called it “undoubtedly a very interesting offer,” but said the Kremlin needed more details. There was no apparent follow-up in Twitter, however.
