The extravagant billionaire Elon Musk has declared a new venture to contest the popular artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT. According to a recent interview on FOX with Tucker Carlson, Elon Musk argued that ChatGPT is politically motivated and thus doesn’t reflect reality on many important topics.

Musk Aims to Silence Woke AI

Elon Musk’s involvement in artificial intelligence is not exactly new. The billionaire spaceman and Y Combinator CEO Sam Altman were early investors in OpenAI, a technology on which ChatGPT is based. The collaboration between the two billionaires ended quickly because of an alleged conflict of interest, as Musk was working on developing Tesla’s self-driving features. 

On top of that, the former partnership is overshadowed by the clash of perspectives between Microsoft and Tesla. Musk once lambasted ChatGPT for being woke, as “the danger of training AI to be woke – in other words, lie – is deadly.”

X – The Ultimate Futuristic App

Explaining his vision, Elon ‘Chief Twit’ Musk revealed that Twitter is now part of a bigger plan. The upcoming ‘X’ app is bound to be a social hub, having functionality similar to WeChat, the most popular social network in China.


Indeed, WeChat gained massive popularity in the second-largest country by population, as it offers an in-built financial system. Making it easy for friends and family to transfer money without leaving the app is something that Musk sees as more advantageous than switching between apps to conduct business.

Merging Twitter’s social network with a financial platform is just the first step in the ‘X’ saga. Musk recently purchased 10,000 graphics processing units for language models. Ultimately, this could mean that the omnipresent billionaire is gathering data for his upcoming ChatGPT rival.


Twitter’s financial switch can already be seen in the recent partnership with eToro, a major stock and crypto trading platform, making Twitter the first social network to allow users to buy Bitcoin and Ethereum within the app.

On the Flipside

  • Just three weeks ago, Elon Musk and other investors urged a pause on AI development due to societal risks.
  • The open letter was penned by artificial intelligence experts who wanted to halt the development of AI for six months.
