He's also known as being a bit of an oddball in real life, a persona he has gleefully embraced on the internet. Musk has always been active on Twitter, tweeting out updates and opinions to his 27 million followers with a regularity that some investors find concerning. After a series of tweets turned public perception against him in 2017 he took drastic measures to turn his image around, starting with a bizarre yet hilarious interview with Joe Rogan for the entertainer's "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast. He followed up that marijuana-laced visit with a live trip to meet PewDiPie, the most-watched YouTuber online today. Next thing we knew Elon had somehow used memes to become relevant to an entirely new demographic: the young people of the internet. Now the "likable weirdo" has become the poster child for self-deprecation in the form of web memes. If you tweet an Elon meme at Elon, he might just reply. Thanks to the way he has embraced meme culture he's now considered to be one of the most popular public figures on the internet, right after Bob Ross and Keanu Reeves. 01 of 25 Why Be Ordinary?
