Elon Musk co-hosted a short livestream on Twitter Space on Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET. et. The Twitter CEO treated the audience to a variety of sounds, from footsteps to a rooster crowing.
His co-host, Jason Calacanis, wondered if Musk was getting out of the toilet after flushing. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Elon Musk co-hosted a 10-minute livestream in which he treated more than 42,000 Twitter users to dulcet tones to test out a “new mic.”
Musk co-hosted the Twitter Spaces livestream with Jason Calakanis, an investor and podcaster. The livestream mainly consisted of Musk laughing and experimenting with a voice transformer that distorted his voice.
“Sounds like helium from a balloon,” Calacanis told Musk at one point to a laugh. Calacanis then asked Musk what time it was in California. Musk said, “Uh, I’m here in Austin, it’s 2 o’clock.” “Wait. There’s a whole sound board. Can you see the sound board?”
Livestream viewers were then treated to what appeared to be the sound of water ebbing and flowing. “Dude, you can’t go on Twitter Space when you’re in the bathroom,” Calakanis said. Elon Musk and Calacanis continued to test various functions on their sound board, ranging from fart noises and static to the sound of a rooster crowing – all dissolving into laughter.
After a minute of spamming the audience with the sound, Musk announced that his voice was “back to normal” and that he thought the voice-changing act was “amusing”. Elon Musk said before logging out of the Twitter space, “Okay, I need to go to bed.
Musk is, in his own words, “quite a nocturnal”, and has said that he usually falls asleep around 3 am. The Twitter CEO is known for working late hours – in November, he sent an email in the middle of the night urging Twitter employees to “work long hours at high intensity” or quit their jobs.
He is also known for his erratic behavior on Twitter, including an April 2022 tweet saying he wanted to buy Coca-Cola to “bring cocaine back” into soft drinks.
It is not clear whether Musk was testing the Twitter space for a work-related purpose or just for fun. Musk did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Musk once again became the world’s richest person on Monday. Now his total assets are 187.1 billion dollars.
“Dude, you can’t go on Twitter Spaces when you’re in the bathroom, bro,” Musk’s co-host, investor Jason Calacanis, said, after the sound of water flowing and flushing was heard on the livestream.”
