He then created a reusable rocket (SpaceX) and finally, changed the entire automotive market with the world’s first mass-produced EV (Tesla). Of course, his predictions haven’t always hit their mark. For example, he promised fully autonomous vehicles by the end of 2019. And now he wants to make Twitter great again. Ever since he bought the company for $44 billion last month, Elon’s been making some very controversial moves.[…]
