Only if you’ve been living under a rock have you missed Elon Musk, the billionaire Tesla entrepreneur, buying a 100% interest in Twitter for $44 billion. Netizens have bombarded the microblogging site with possible recommendations and improvements they would want to see in the future after the takeover. Shubman Gill, an Indian cricketer, was also among them. The cricketer resorted to Twitter to publish a message asking Tesla CEO Elon Musk to buy food delivery service Swiggy. You might wonder why. So, keep reading.
On Friday, Shubman Gill turned to Twitter to ask Elon Musk to take over Swiggy, claiming that the company was not delivering meals on time. The post went insanely popular and elicited a slew of responses from internet users.
“Elon Musk, please buy Swiggy so they can deliver on time,” reads the post.

“Try to empathise with delivery partners,” one user said.
“Cringe max,” said another user. Especially at a time when these applications are developing a 10-minute delivery system that is really dangerous.”

You mean deliver as soon as you order 🤔 They are already causing chaos with their reckless driving trying to fulfill the current delivery timeframe https://t.co/IUeGkjFEeA

Shubman Gill’s post was mocked by a phoney Swiggy account, which became crazily viral on social media. “In T20 cricket, we are still faster than your batting,” says the message.
