Elon Musk is a man of few words and many memes, and his Twitter account is proof. The Tesla and SpaceX CEO is known to change the fate of cryptocurrency values with his one-line tweets and hilarious memes. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the tech billionaire has a large section of the Internet hanging onto each and every word — or in Mr. Musk’s case, each and every meme. And true to his reputation, the entrepreneur sent social media users into a tizzy when he shared a funny meme about the video conferencing app, Skype, on Sunday. The meme depicts Skype as an uninvited guest who tends to reappear in the house despite the homeowner throwing it out repeatedly.
The meme further strengthened the notion that the app is extremely hard to get rid of and social media users seemed to agree with Mr. Musk on this. In less than 24 hours, the meme garnered 2.72 lakh ‘likes’ and has been ‘shared’ over 19,000 times.

Given the entrepreneur’s close association with cryptocurrency, there were also several queries about the fate of Bitcoin and Dogecoin in the comments section. Recently, Mr Musk had also tweeted about his ‘breakup’ with Bitcoin. The billionaire shared a meme that featured a couple that was parting ways. The note in the meme read, “Her: I know I said it would be over between us if you quoted another Linkin Park song but I have found someone else.” This is followed by, “Him: So, in the end, it doesn’t even matter,” which is a line from the band’s song In The End.
Sharing the meme, Mr. Musk wrote, “#Bitcoin,” followed by a broken heart emoticon. The tweet was soon followed by a fall in the value of the cryptocurrency. Soon after Mr. Musk’s meme, the value of Bitcoin fell by 3 per cent. He followed this up with another meme; this time about the dipping values.
