The controversial owner of the social network X, better known as Twitter, Elon Musk, published on his official account that the fight against Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook, will be broadcast live through his platform. He also made it known that all proceeds generated by the confrontation against the CEO of Meta, will be donated to charity for veterans.
So far, Marck Zuckerberg has not spoken out before the publication of his next opponent in the ring, Elon Musk, but he has made publications on social networks he runs off his workouts, facing the fight with Musk. The two entrepreneurs will step into the ring to raise funds and also to define who is the best tech mogul.

The confrontation between Musk and Zuckerberg was born, as expected, through publications on the respective social networks they run. It was last June when the fight between two of the most billionaire entrepreneurs on the planet, was agreed upon. Although it seemed like a joke or even part of a strategy, everything began to rise in tone and take on more importance, so Musk and Zuckerberg have been toying with the idea that apparently will become a reality in the coming weeks.
It transcended that Elon Musk has been training and getting in shape with Lex Fridman, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu expert, and with George St-Pierre, a UFC champion. For his part, Mark Zuckerberg has published more than once his mixed martial arts training.
Elon Musk’s Controversial Management
Since he became the owner of Twitter and took the reins of the management of this social network, Musk has not ceased to cause controversy for the way he has managed the famous platform, since even the name and image have changed. One of the first decisions that turned the world upside down was when he decided to fire a little more than half of the employees working for Twitter.
In early July, Musk implemented a measure that limits the number of tweets that users can read depending on the type of account they have. According to Musk, this measure was implemented on Twitter to try to counteract the extreme levels of data mining and manipulation of the systems, according to the entrepreneur’s own words.
I’m up for a cage match if he is lol

Elon Musk stated that Artificial Intelligence is the main reason why this measure was created, as it is the way it obtains data from users who use platforms such as Twitter, to develop applications and affects them in a very important way.
“Several hundred organizations (maybe more) were mining Twitter data extremely aggressively. They were plundering so much data from us that it was degrading the normal user experience,” explained the owner of the social network.
Finally, but with an unprecedented impact, Elon Musk decided to change the image, logo, and name of Twitter, which is now called X, something that ended with the whole evolution of the well-known blue bird, with which he seeks to start a completely different stage for the microblog type messaging platform.
