The chart revealed by Musk was prompted in response to the trending hashtags #RIPTwitter and #GoodbyeTwitter.
According to him, more people are using the platform despite many saying they are leaving due to fear of collapse.
There have been speculations that people are leaving Twitter because of Musk and his unfavorable policies being introduced since he took over the ownership of Twitter.
These include the introduction of $8 a month for the Blue Check and restoration accounts earlier banned by Twitter for violating the platform’s policy.
