Tesla CEO Elon Musk changed his name on Twitter to “Naughtius Maximus”, but his name remains the same.
- Elon Musk changes the name of his Twitter profile to “‘Naughtius Maximus”.
- Tesla Ceo also changes his Twitter bio referencing Roman Commander.
- Twitter followers are loving his new name.
After Elona, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has now changed his name to Naughtius Maximus on Twitter amid his ongoing battle with the microblogging site. Musk didn’t just change his name, his Twitter bio was also updated to “Centurion in Jerusalem Garrison.” Besides that, he also changed his profile picture and set his childhood picture as his new profile picture.
Musk’s name change on Twitter left his followers puzzled. However, Musk has remained tight-lipped about it despite all the chatter surrounding his name. Anything about Musk can’t be simple or without a dash of humor. So, the new name also has a hilarious meaning with a satirical biography.
The word Naughtius Maximus means one who displays violent or antisocial behavior. In simpler terms, “Naughtius” means villain and “Maximus” means maximum. The word is specially used for children and this could be a reason behind his new Twitter profile picture as a child Elon Musk.
Speaking of his updated bio on Twitter – “Centurion in the Jerusalem Garrison”, Centurion means commander of a century in the ancient Roman army. The word garrison refers to a body of troops stationed at a particular location. Thus, the entire phrase means a commander stationed on the borders of Jerusalem.
While the meaning may have historical significance, some netizens refer to it as a satire that he dropped because he’s in a legal fight with Twitter.
Musk also posted a popcorn emoji in his Twitter post right after changing his name and bio on the site.
Not to mention, this isn’t the first time Musk has changed his Twitter name. Earlier this year he changed his name to ‘Elona Musk’ on Twitter after the head of the Chechen Republic called him ‘effeminate’ and said he had to ‘bulk up those muscles in order to go from sweet (effeminate) Elona à la brutal Elon.”
