Elon Musk shares a second photo of his bedside table, showing a Christmas card based on the US Constitution – calling it his ‘most treasured’ item
- The Twitter CEO showcased a stack of books relating to the founding of America
- In a previous photo, his penchant for guns and decaf Diet Coke became clear
- Musk remained under media scrutiny for months
“Twit leader” Elon Musk this week shared another photo of his bedside table, in which he displayed the US Constitution and called it “the most precious item” on the bedside table.
The surprise glimpse of his personal quarters came in response to a tweet from an account called “Musk University”, which tweets quotes from the famous CEO.
In this case, the account had posted: “The Constitution is bigger than any president. End of the story.’
To which Musk replied, “May it always be so. It’s the most treasured item on my bedside table,” above a photo of the table.
Musk, again, showcased his bedside table in a photo that included a series of documents that were integral to the founding of America
The photo was posted in response to an account that posts Musk’s old quotes, highlighting his commitment to the US Constitution.
Musk has called himself a “free speech absolutist,” and as such he obviously sleeps with copies of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Washington’s rules of civility next to him.
The three books appear to be part of a box set of some of America’s founding documents and most important writings.
The photo marks the second time in recent weeks that Musk has shared a glimpse of his bedside table.
The first photo came in late November, when he posted a photo showing four empty cans of decaffeinated Diet Coke, a framed photo of George Washington crossing Delaware, along with a copy of Washington’s flintlock pistol, a ritual object of the Tibetan Buddhism known as a Vajra Dorje and a fake .357 revolver used in the “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” video game.
At the edge of the painting in the first photo, all the books, including the copy of the Constitution, are visible.
“My bedside table,” he captioned the initial photo. “There is no excuse for my lack of coasters.”
In the updated snap, it looks like Musk has acquired some coasters.
In Musk’s first bedside photo from November, he showed his love of caffeine-free diet coke, his fondness for George Washington, guns (but not real ones) and a Buddhist ritual object
Musk regularly shares information about himself on the abbreviated social media platform he officially acquired in late October.
Musk has been under constant media scrutiny since acquiring the platform, as he, among other things, orchestrated the release of information about the old guard and how the company was run.
Musk recently revealed he would step down as CEO of Twitter when he finds a suitable candidate to take on the role.
He previously posted a poll asking users if he should stay in charge, which he lost by nearly 18 points.
In another recent incident, Musk apparently lost his temper when he was pressured by a Twitter Space participant – and former Twitter employee – into explaining how he was going to reinvent Twitter.
The conversation got technical and ended with Musk calling the former employee – George Hotz – a “moron”.
