Elon Musk says he's 'buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in' after his $44billion Twitter purchase

ELON Musk is debuting new comedic material on Twitter for his 86million followers.

The richest man in the world said he would buy Coca-Cola to "put the cocaine back in".



Musk was chummy with his followers, and sporadically replied to some fans who added to the humor.

A fan mocked-up a fake tweet of Musk announcing he would buy McDonalds and fix the notoriously inoperable ice cream machines – to which Musk replied "Listen, I can't do miracles ok".

The joke is based on the proven legend that Coca-Cola once contained 3.5milligrams of cocaine.

Musk just spent $44billion to buy Twitter and even that purchase was prefaced by a throwaway comment – he nonchalantly asked how much the platform costs five years ago.

Ultimately, its unlikely he could actually pull off buying Coca-Cola – the beverage company has a market cap of $283billion, almost $20billion more than Musk's net worth.

In any case, the cocaine-centric post racked up likes at hypersonic speeds and is currently the 15th most liked tweet of all time with 3million likes.

Musk is also the author of the 6th most liked tweet – a polarizing message that broadly signaled where he would take Twitter read "I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means" and grabbed 3.1million likes.

Musk's engagement on Twitter has gone up considerably since he purchased the platform – he gained over 2million followers the day after the acquisition was tentatively accepted.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO has a niched sense of humor that calls back to a simpler era of the internet.

He's tweeted several jokes about the number 69 and the ancient internet acronym FTW – which means 'for the win' – is still very much in his Twittercabulary.

Musk's dedication to the craft cuts so deep he even factored a 420 joke into his Twitter bid, offering the shareholders a buyout at $54.20 a share.

But Musk's Twitter is under close watch by regulatory bodies.

A stipulation in the Twitter acquisition agreement bars him from posting negative comments about the company – Musk has been ignoring this provision in the eyes of his critics.
