Elon Musk Launches Media Company Thud, Hires Former Onion Execs – TeslaWeekly

From IGN:

Elon Musk continues his quest for global domination with the announcement of a new media company, Thud, and has hired The Onion’s former editor-in-chief Cole Bolton and executive editor Ben Berkley. After an initial cryptic tweet that simply said “Thud!,” Musk followed it up with the announcement in a second tweet, saying, “That’s the name of my new intergalactic media empire, exclamation point optional.” [and] “It’s pretty obvious that comedy is the next frontier after electric vehicles, space exploration, and brain-computer interfaces,” Musk said, when asked to elaborate on his role in the project. “Don’t know how anyone’s not seeing this.”

I originally thought Elon’s tweet about a new media company but apparently according to IGN it’s real.
