PHOTO: Elon Musk shares picture of his favourite free caffeine Diet Coke, Diamondback revolver and Deux Ex gun

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Elon Musk shares picture of his favourite free caffeine Diet Coke, Diamondback revolver and Deux Ex gun. (Read More Here).

Elon Musk once said that he was "fairly nocturnal", sleeping not more than six hours a day. But now it seems that even those six hours aren't there. Within just one month of Twitter's acquisition, it looks like the billionaire is already spending sleepless nights and working 24 hours. And he is probably fueled by diet coke as he works frantically to reshape Twitter in his colours. This is the idea one gets from the photo of his "bedside table" that Musk tweeted just now.

Since the acquisition, Musk has been tweeting more than ever before. Most of the tweets are around his plans for Twitter 2.0, upcoming features, and everything that's happening at Twitter HQ - good or bad. But the latest tweet from Musk is slightly different and personal.

The new tweet coming from Musk shows his bedside table with many cans of diet coke, and two guns. Well, sort of. The empty cans of coke are definitely real, and so is the lack of coasters, as evident by the round marks left by the cans. But the pistols? Well, one of them is an old -- probably centuries-old collector's item. It's a flintlock pistol. The other one seems modern enough. But it is probably a pro, a toy, or something like that. It seems to be made of plastic or flimsy material, and is missing the trigger.

After tweeting the photo, Musk probably realised how stained the table was. So, he tweeted again: "There is no excuse for my lack of coasters.

Possibly the caffeine in the drink helps Musk stay awake and work 24 X 7 hours to rebuild Twitter.

Interestingly, Twitter has a usage policy that forbids sharing photos of firearms. But in the case of Musk, even if we assume that the rules users need to follow don't apply to the owner, it's probably all good. This is because his photo might show "guns" but they are probably guns as we know them.

Many software engineers weren't happy with Musk's "ultimatum mail" that he sent in the middle of the night, in which he asked employees to be ready for a hardware work culture, and decided to leave the company with three-month severance pay. Nearly 1200 engineers felt they were not ready to be a part of Musk's Twitter 2.0.

Following the mass resignation, the company started rehiring and Musk also asked the remaining employees with knowledge of coding to meet him personally. The Twitter boss recently said that "world-class software aces are joining" the firm soon.

Musk also showed interest in hiring engineers from Japan, India, and Brazil but didn't say when he would start the hiring process. Currently, the company's official career page lists two positions -- senior engineering manager and administrative business partner -- in the United States.

It was in June this year that Musk expressed his love towards diet cokes on the micro-blogging platform. Musk had tweeted back then, "Diet Coke is amazing, especially the soda fountain version at movie theatres with salt & butter popcorn... I don't even care if it lowers my life expectancy."

To this, a user reacted: "Cool. I encourage you to do anything that shortens your life expectancy."

The painting is inspired from the moment when General George Washington led soldiers across a frozen Delaware river amidst a storm. This moment is seen as a pivotal moment in the American Revolutionary war. The painting was made by a German American artist Emanuel Leutze.

The guns in the image may be non-functional, at least from the looks of it. One is an old gun that seems to be an artifact and the other looks like a prop inspired by a sci-fi movie or game.

To the right of the lamp and behind the water bottle appeared to be a tiny, three-book set of the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and “George Washington’s Rules of Civility and Decent Behaviour in Company and Conversation,” published by Applewood Books.

“My bedside table,” Musk captioned the photo. “There is no excuse for my lack of coasters.”

Musk did not provide any other context for the post. It’s unclear if he took the photo or if the table actually belongs to him.

The 51-year-old has a long history of posting provocative tweets – a habit that has drawn increased scrutiny since Musk acquired the platform for $44 billion in October.

Musk has also been open about his views regarding gun ownership. Last May, the tech executive revealed to CNBC that he supports the Second Amendment, though “tight background checks” should be required for all purchases.

“I strongly believe that the right to bear arms is an important safeguard against potential tyranny of government. Historically, maintaining their power over the people is why those in power did not allow public ownership of guns,” Musk told the outlet.

Musk added that he felt the sale of assault weapons should be limited to specific circumstances, such as for those living in a “high risk location, like gang warfare” or gun range owners.

An ongoing overhaul of Twitter’s operations has drawn fierce criticism from Musk’s critics, many of whom argue his “absolutist” approach to free speech will lead to more hate speech and unsafe conduct on the site.

Musk-led initiatives include a much-maligned revamp of Twitter’s verification system and thousands of job cuts.

Earlier this month, the FTX said it was “tracking recent developments at Twitter with deep concern.”
