While there’s nothing wrong with this tweet at first glance, the Community Notes “note” on this tweet seems to make the whole situation a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Community Notes made minor adjustments to Musk’s original tweet, stating that “some” tweets with “false claims” may not be flagged by the feature. “The system is limited in its reach by participation.”

Why it matters: Community Notes was formerly known as Birdwatchwhich Musk’s own Twitter reintroduced in December 2022. The feature allows users to add notes to tweets that may be misleading.

Musk has previously praised the feature after flagging his post, which contained a rigged headline attributed to CNN.
