Elon Musk trolls Mark Zuckerberg over ‘Metaverse’ after Facebook name change

Elon Musk has tweeted a meme trolling Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s plans to launch a ‘metaverse’ following the Facebook name change.

The entrepreneur and SpaceX founder shared the Matrix-inspired meme on Twitter at 3:05 am this morning (October 30).

Musk tweeted the image, which reads: "If you die in the metaverse, you die in real life," as part of a chain of memes started by NicheGamer mocking Zuckerberg.

To which one user responded: "Is this the new story arc for Black Mirror?"

Another joked: "What if we’re already in an infinite sim and can’t die?"

It follows after the Facebook founder announced a rebrand of the social media platform, under the new name 'Meta'.

He also discussed plans to create and launch a "metaverse", which he described as a "set of virtual spaces where you can create and explore with other people who aren’t in the same physical space as you".

Announcing the plans, Zuckerberg said: "We are a company that builds technology to connect.

"Together, we can finally put people at the centre of our technology. And together, we can unlock a massively bigger creator economy.

"To reflect who we are and what we hope to build."

He said the name Facebook doesn’t fully encompass everything the company does now and is still closely linked to one product.

"But over time, I hope we are seen as a metaverse company."
