Elon Musk mistakenly tweets his phone number to the public

Musk wrote from his account on Tuesday to John Carmack, the chief technology officer of Facebook Inc. -owned Oculus.

While Business Insider isn't going to share the number, it does indeed appear to be Musk's personal phone - it registers as ready for Apple iMessage.

The tweet was removed soon after, but we're sure at least a few thousands of his 16.7 million followers must have spotted the opportunity and even tried calling him.

Looks like Elon Musk is going to have to change his phone number. After all, Tesla makes some of the most high-tech cars on the road today. Representatives for Tesla and Space Exploration Technologies Corp. didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

The Sacramento Bee also called the number, but it had apparently been disconnected.




That being the message isn't all that surprising given Musk has a healthy sense of humor, although a rendition of Call Me Maybe might have better option given the circumstance.

The audio clip, recorded by game creator David Jaffe, is one of two secret codes hidden in the game.

Oh, and that message, in case you want to hear what Musk had on his cell phone, can be heard by dialing 1-800-613-8840.

"By the Gods you've done it", the message starts. "Somehow you've found your way here to me". Elon Musk deleted the tweet, but not after blasting it to over 16 million of his Twitter followers. "I offer you my congratulations and my respect".
