'Just deleted my Twitter account', Elon Musk tweeted.
California/Mumbai: In a sudden and unexplained move, CEO of SpaceX and co-founder of Tesla Elon Musk on Monday tweeted he had deleted his personal account and changed the Twitter handle username to 'DaddyDotCom'.
''Just deleted my Twitter account'', Elon Musk tweeted while maintaining his history of posting cryptic tweets on the micro-blogging platform.
Just deleted my Twitter account— Daddy DotCom (@elonmusk) June 17, 2019
The new handle name, if it means the site, Daddy.com, is a website for new or expecting fathers.

The announcement received a mixed response on the micro-blogging website, some amused, some shocked:
Please never, the only reason I redownloaded Twitter was for you. Ever since you left Instagram, it’s been so lonely.:(— Austin Barnard🚀 (@austinbarnard45) June 17, 2019

This is not the first time when Elon Musk has left his followers in shock. In 2018 he deleted his Instagram account and offered an explanation via Twitter.
"Instagram is so thirsty, yet gives you Death by Water," Musk tweeted.
