What does one of the richest men on Earth do when not making news for his relationship with Grimes going kaput, or for the unveiling of his humanoid bot? He changes his Twitter user name and leaves everyone puzzled. Elon Musk has changed his handle on Twitter to Lorde Edge and if you've arrived here expecting an answer to what the name which sounds like a royal title means, we've got news for you. Along with changing his username, Musk has also set his location to 'Trollheim'. Too much to process? Continue reading, we've got you covered. 

Before diving into the name, we'd like to refresh the memories of the Tesla boss's fandom regarding a warning issued to him by hacktivist group 'Anonymous'. They threatened Musk as his tweets continued to affect the cryptoverse in turn affecting the working class. They released a video targeting Musk for causing the price of cryptocurrencies to plummet as a result of his comments, including Bitcoin. In the video released in June, Anonymous claimed Musk wielded far too much power over the crypto markets. The video came on the heels of Musk's 'SNL' appearance which was touted to heighten the value of Dogecoin but the opposite happened. Tesla also announced they were suspending the use of bitcoins to buy its electric vehicles with Musk raising concerns over "the use of fossil fuels" to mine and transact Bitcoins.

What does Elon Musk's Twitter name Lorde Edge mean?

Musk changing his name on Twitter has confused netizens and the Tesla boss has yet to clarify it. In the past couple of days, US senator Ron Wyden appeared to throw shade at him for a tweet Musk made, asking people if he should sell off 10% of his Tesla stock. In a Yes/No poll style tweet, Musk wrote, "Much is made lately of unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock. Do you support this?" Wyden replied to the tweet with, "Whether or not the world’s wealthiest man pays any taxes at all shouldn’t depend on the results of a Twitter poll. It’s time for the Billionaires Income Tax."

Musk responded to Wyden with a rude tweet that read, "Why does your pp look like you just came?" He faced a lot of criticism for the same while another section of netizens backed him up for his opinion. "This tweet proves that all the money in the world can't buy class or self-esteem. Take some of that money and get yourself a therapist," a tweet read. "Imagine people wanting to tax you more because you’ve worked extremely hard in life to get where you are," wrote a Musk fan. Coming back to the meaning of Musk's Twitter name, Dogecoin co-founder Billy Markus explained with a tweet that it is an anagram for 'Elder Doge'. However, the reason behind Musk making the change continues to be speculated. According to another report, the change of name "can also be interpreted as the Tesla boss making a dig at himself for his tweet directed at Wyden which was termed offensive by man." In related news, his new name has resulted in a new cryptocurrency by the name of Lorde Edge. 



 



 



 



 

Internet says 'the idiot has more money than sense' 

The Internet is buzzing with reactions over Musk's new Twitter name. "So, Elon Musk is now "Lorde Edge." This idiot has more money than sense. Do something to help relieve the misery in this world," a user tweeted. "I can't believe the world's richest man calls himself Lorde Edge. Upon reflection, in the year 2021, this makes perfect sense. Proceed," another tweet read. "The one thing we didn't count on or warn about was how f**king stupid some of the megacorp owners are. As I'm typing this, "Lorde Edge" just trended - Musk is the most juvenile of these planet-r*pers & needs his throne deflated," a third tweeted. "And what is this Lorde Edge thing? Does he think he’s playing Dungeons and Dragons? I really think the guy needs help," opined another.
