Elon Musk has revealed that a ‘joke’ got him suspended from Twitter.

Last October, the billionaire told more than 24 million followers that his account was locked because the social network ‘thought I got hacked’.

Now Musk has revealed further details of why he was temporarily booted off Twitter.

Yesterday, he spoke to analysts from ARK Invest during a half hour podcast which discussed ‘the future of Tesla and autonomous driving’.
