Mandatory Tweets: Elon Musk Changes Name to Lorde Edge and Twitter Is Full of Conspiracies and Funny Jabs

Elon Musk sure does know how to get people talking…but half the time, what they’re saying is “Huh?” His latest stunt involved changing his Twitter name to “Lorde Edge” to accompany his phallic profile pic. He also reverted his location to “Tröllheim” (which kinda sorta translates to “Troll’s World” and, as super nerds know, is a mountain in the online game Old School RuneScape).

So what does all this mean, other than Musk is off his rocker? Well, Twitter had some theories, primarily that “Lorde Edge” is an anagram of “elder doge,” which is a reference to dogecoin. (Still following? Because we don’t know WTF is going on.) And speaking of cryptocurrencies, the name change inspired a new form of crypto called Lorde Edge coin.

Whatever his intent, Twitter took the opportunity to speculate and poke fun at the richest – and weirdest – man on the planet.




He’s since returned his name to normal, but kept the profile pic, proving he’s still a dick.
