The takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk has raised many questions about the future of the social network. Henrik Fisker did not wait to find out what the turn of events would be.
Henrik Fisker is, like Elon Musk, an entrepreneur in the automotive industry. Famous for creating Fisker Automotive and the Karma, a plug-in hybrid sports sedan.
Today, he heads Fisker Inc., which is releasing its first electric SUV this year, the Ocean. But he is above all a rival of Elon Musk for more than a decade.
Indeed, after working for Tesla on the design of the Model S, he suffered a complaint from the American firm. This accused him of having stolen the design of the electric sedan to design the Karma. Fisker had prevailed, but the relationship between the two men had broken down.
This is how when Musk bought Twitter, the Danish-American entrepreneur did not want to stay there. He posted a simple message: “Please follow me on Instagram now if you want information. Thank you “.
Soon after, his Twitter account simply disappeared, with Fisker taking immediate action after the takeover news broke. The acquisition of Musk has notably created doubts among Tesla shareholders about its ability to manage the two companies head-on.
