Musk breaks silence on Twitter, posts a picture with the pope

Elon Musk posted a photo of himself with Pope Francis on Thursday on Twitter on Friday night, ending a nine-day hiatus on the social media site that he is attempting to acquire for $44 billion.

The richest man in the world tweeted a photo of himself standing next to the pope with the comment, “Honored to meet @pontifex yesterday.”

Musk’s four teenage boys are also pictured, but not his 18-year-old transgender daughter who, on June 20 sought to change her name and sever ties with him. Musk has a total of eight children.

The purpose and location of Musk’s meeting with the pope were not immediately clear.

Last month, Musk said there were “still a few unresolved matters” on the deal to buy Twitter, including the number of spam users on the system and the coming together of the debt portion of the deal.
