Elon Musk’s Twitter activity has been unusually quiet lately.

The Tesla and SpaceX boss is as well known for his love for the social media site as for being the richest person on earth.

And while the saga of whether or not he will actually buy Twitter continues, his own Twitter account has gone dark over the past week.

Musk’s last tweet came on June 21, responding to a tweet about a dispute between SpaceX and the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) over the Starlink satellite system.

A day later he liked a few posts but didn’t post anything.

In the meantime, his follower count has surpassed 100 million — something very few people on Twitter get to brag about.

Musk has taken Twitter breaks in the past. Especially when he was on the platform he got bad PR. But he usually returns within a few days.

But that period of silence is coming under closer scrutiny, both because of Musk’s ongoing ambition to buy Twitter and a recent open letter from SpaceX employees criticizing him for using it too often.

The letter, titled “an open letter to SpaceX executives,” called Musk a “distraction and embarrassment” for the company he founded.

“Elon’s public behavior is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment for us, particularly in recent weeks,” the letter said.

“As our CEO and most prominent spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX – every tweet Elon sends is a de facto public statement from the company.”

Shortly after it surfaced, SpaceX was reported have laid off at least some of the employees involved.
