In an unexpected twist in the ever-evolving world of tech, a rather unusual challenge has been thrown between two of the industry’s biggest figures: Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, and the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk. The tech world has been aflutter with this recent development, as two major social media platforms prepare to go head-to-head not only in the virtual realm but also in a very real, very physical confrontation.


Tensions have been mounting between Zuckerberg and Musk as Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, prepares to launch a direct competitor to Twitter. Meanwhile, Musk has plans to expand Twitter into an “everything app,” directly challenging both Facebook and Instagram.

Musk, never one to shy away from controversy, threw down the gauntlet in a Twitter thread dedicated to Meta’s planned launch. “I’m up for a cage match if he is lol,” Musk taunted.

This came hot on the heels of a previous tweet where Musk expressed skepticism about Meta’s ability to succeed in its endeavor: “I’m sure Earth can’t wait to be exclusively under Zuck’s thumb with no other options. At least it will be ‘sane’. Was worried there for a moment.”

Responding to Musk’s cage match challenge, Zuckerberg took to Instagram with a terse “Send Me Location.” When Meta was asked about this, their spokesperson Iska Saric was laconic in his response, stating “The story speaks for itself.”


Further fanning the flames, Musk suggested a Vegas Octagon as the venue and amusingly mentioned a unique move he calls “The Walrus”, where he would simply lie on his opponent and do nothing.

However, despite Musk’s playful overtures, he might be in a sticky situation. Over recent years, Zuckerberg has transformed from a lifelong nerd into a fitness enthusiast, even achieving some prowess in the martial art of jiu jitsu. Musk, on the other hand, admits he rarely works out.

Musk’s background does involve some real-world combat experience, however. He has previously stated in interviews that he was bullied often as a child and found himself in several street fights. This has led to some speculation that Musk might use his streetfighting experience to his advantage, perhaps even resorting to the dirty tactic of eye-poking. This, of course, is speculation at its wildest and most amusing.


But should Musk miss his initial opportunity to unleash his streetfighter tactics, the consensus is that he might well be in over his head. The public, undoubtedly, is on the edge of their seats, eager to see how this tech titan showdown will play out. Regardless of the outcome, the war between Meta and Musk’s Twitter promises to be a spectacle, both online and in the Octagon. One thing is for sure: in the world of tech giants, no battle is too big, no challenge too outlandish.
