Tesla Gigafactory Address Tweeted By Elon Musk

September 12th, 2014 by  

Because basically everything Elon Musk tweets is worth writing about, and because the Tesla Gigafactory is probably the biggest cleantech story of the year (or the decade?), here’s the latest speck of news: the street where the Gigafactory will be located is to be called Electric Avenue. Here’s the actual tweet:

Nice. Presumably, that references this song:

Or it’s just a coincidence… but knowing Elon, I’d assume he did that on purpose.

Always having fun. That’s the way to save the world, isn’t it?

And for anyone who says Tesla doesn’t advertise, it’s time to wake up and realize that it advertises in a very effective 21st-century way. Elon actually uses his Twitter account, rather than sticking a social media company on it. He tantalizes and plays. People love it and the humble man is now approaching 1 million followers.

Because many of the replies on Twitter were quite funny and clever, I figured I’d go ahead and share some of those too:

Had to do a screenshot on this one since the music symbols messed things up.

Have to click the instagram link on that one above and watch the video.
