Elon Musk tweeted that Tesla have had 140,000 orders for the Cybertruck, and without any money spent on advertising. I have to hand it to Twitter; my entire timeline was exploding earlier this week about:

  • how awful the new truck looks
  • how the demo had failed
  • memes, doctored screenshots, and more memes
  • commentary that should be on a blog post threads

I didn’t know the demo had happened, or what a Cybertruck was till I saw these. Why would you waste money on advertising when your detractors are so willing to discuss it ad nauseum?
