NEW DELHI: A 23-year-old Indian claims he is in touch with the Tesla and Space X CEO, Elon Musk, NDTV reported.
Pune-based software professional, Pranay Pathole, interacted with Musk for the first time in 2018 when he was defending Musk from critics on social media.
Musk is known for regularly responding to his followers’ tweets. However, Pathole claims that conversations between the billionaire and him are regular via direct messages (DM).
He says that they discuss various things such as technical issues and the need for planet colonisation.
Pathole is a huge fan and considers Musk his role model.
In 2018, Musk had responded to Pathole’s tweet. Things accelerated, however, when Musk answered a direct query by Pathole in the DMs.
"Thereon, our DM conversation started. I used to tweet him some interesting technical things and then he would respond to it. I think he found my tweets intriguing and interesting. They (tweets) caught his attention and he started responding," he told news agency PTI.
Pathole defended Musk in recent times as well during the Putin-Musk Twitter war.
