After taking over Twitter, which later became X, billionaire Elon Musk has been in the news. Founders of SpaceX and Tesla regularly post on the microblogging platform, attracting users worldwide. According to the billionaire, Wikipedia’s name could be changed for $1 billion if he paid $1 billion. “I will give them a billion dollars if they change their name to Dickipedia,” he said, adding that he would do so “in the interests of accuracy.”

A user asked Mr Musk to set another condition before Wikipedia could proceed with the name change. A user urged Wikipedia to make the change. “You can always change it back after collecting,” he said. Getting back to the billionaire, he was quoted as saying, “I’m not a fool, I’ll make a commitment for at least one year.”.

An earlier post posted by him featured a screenshot of Wikipedia’s homepage that read “Wikipedia is not for sale” and “a personal appeal from Jimmy Wales”. As Mr Musk pointed out, “Have you ever wondered why the Wikimedia Foundation wants so much money? The entire Wikipedia text can be stored on a smartphone! So, why do they need so much money?”.

Several follow-up posts followed, including Musk’s request to add an emoji of a cow and a poop.

Over a lakh likes and 9.9 million views have been recorded since his post was shared.

It seems they are always asking for donations, so be careful. They may come to collect,” another user commented.

Someone commented, “That sounds like the cage match challenge.”.

It could be purchased and auto-updated by AI, according to a third commenter.

An anonymous user commented, “Typical rich guy… Will only donate if the institution names itself after him.”.

Adding to the comments, another user said, “I can’t imagine these people are awake on the same planet as me lmao.”

As Turkey’s highly contested presidential election approached, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales took a dig at Musk for censoring critics of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. When Mr Wales caved to Turkey’s demands to restrict content, he called out the billionaire for not supporting free speech. As Mr Wales mentioned in his post, Wikipedia reacted when he encountered a similar situation.

It’s either throttle Twitter in its entirety or restrict access to some tweets, Yglesias. Which one do you prefer?” Mr Musk asked.

Despite Musk’s tweet, he said, “This is what it means to treat freedom of expression as a principle, not as a slogan. This is what Wikipedia did.”

A Turkish telecommunications watchdog blocked Wikipedia for more than two years citing a law that allows it to ban sites deemed obscene or a threat to national security.
