Elon Musk is enjoying some back-and-forth interaction with Twitter users, joking that he wanted to buy beverage giant Coca-Cola.
Musk reached a deal to purchase Twitter for $44 billion Monday and has since said, “Let’s make Twitter maximum fun!”
“Next I'm buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in,” the Tesla and SpaceX CEO joked, referencing an early recipe for the drink that contained cocaine in coca leaf extract form.
The tweet stirred a series of amusing replies.

Musk replied, “Kicks Red Bull’s a**!”
While many offered their support for the venture, others have suggested additional takeovers, including buying and saving countries, the Federal Reserve, and TikTok.
One Twitter user asked Musk to help bring back the sci-fi series Firefly.
