To say that Elon Musk is an active Twitter user would be an understatement. The founder of Tesla, SpaceX and now The Boring Co. loves to post behind-the-scenes pics and joke around with his followers. Yet, as social media-savvy as Musk is, he made a fatal mistake. The CEO actually tweeted his personal cell phone number to 16 million followers #todaymagic
