Elon Musk keeps getting owned by the PA Treasury’s Twitter account

Elon Musk has a new high-profile Twitter hater, and for some bizarre reason, it just so happens to be the official account of the Pennsylvania State Treasury. 

The certified Extremely Online CEO has had his share of Twitter beefs over the years. From calling someone a “pedo guy” to possibly ripping off farting unicorn artwork, Musk has typically been the instigator in online matters past. Not anymore.

The verified @PATreasury account started dropping Musk-flavored insults last August, but the campaign of dunks truly began in earnest on Monday. 

“‘What if we took something like a subway, but made it unfathomably expensive and only for cars, and also make sure that it will never work?’—Elon Musk,,a genius,” wrote the Treasury

That message was quickly followed by another tweet unfavorably comparing Musk to Mark Zuckerberg. Damn, that’s harsh. 

“A big difference w/ Zuckerberg and Elon Musk is that Treasury has worked hard for yrs to make gradual progress on getting Zuck to not serve as CEO and Chairman of the Board at the same time; and Elon Musk literally did a tweet so bad that he was forced to step down as Chairman,” read the Tuesday tweet.

In case you’re curious, the verified account repeatedly owning Musk really is a Pennsylvania Treasury account. A July article in the Pittsburgh City Paper confirms that, yes, this is all legit. 

“We decided to create the account and get kind of weird with it, but hopefully not too weird,” one of the people behind the account told the paper. 

We reached out to the Treasury via email in an attempt to figure out what, exactly, is going on here, but unfortunately received no response as of press time. We did, however, hear back from the @PATreasury account itself over Twitter direct message. 

“It’s not some specific thing about Musk,” read the response in part. “The real conversation is about investment in public infrastructure versus a private company trying to do this stuff, wealth and income inequality, corporate power, etc. But clearly Musk gets people thinking about this stuff.”

Essentially, it’s trolling to spur public discourse. 

“We’re trying to engage our PA constituents into a conversation about the issues that matter to them,” continued the response, “so however we can get that going is good to us.”

Which, sure, why not?

And maybe, just maybe, it will have the side benefit of luring the CEO into another public Twitter feud. Because he definitely needs one of those.
