On early Sunday morning, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk changed his Twitter bio to ‘Technoking of Tesla, Imperator of Mars’.
Last month, Tesla filed a form 8-K with the SEC to note Musk was to be known as the new ‘Technoking of Tesla’, while CFO Zach Kirkhorn would be the ‘Master of Coin’.
As for ‘Imperator of Mars’, Musk is referencing himself as the commander of Mars, as the word ‘imperator’ has latin origins, and used to represent a commander-in-chief or emperor during the ancient Roman Empire. Musk and SpaceX plan to reach Mars and populate the planet.

When Musk changes his Twitter bio, things tend to happen. In late January, Musk added “#Bitcoin” to his bio, sending the cryptocurrency surging; eventually, Tesla revealed it had invested $1.5 billion into Bitcoin and the company now accepts it for vehicle payments.
