Tech billionaire Elon Musk has triggered a Twitter storm with his “strongest argument against aliens”. The Tesla founder shared a graph of how camera resolutions have improved over the years but resolutions of pictures involving UFOs or unidentified flying objects remain the same. Mr Musk’s latest tweet has received thousands of responses so far.

Not agreeing with Mr Musk’s argument, Artificial Intelligence scientist Lex Fridman said “this is exactly what an alien would tweet.”

Last month, Mr Musk had said, “I am an Alien,” in response to a tweet by CRED owner Kunal Shah. The founder of the card bill payment platform had asked Mr Musk how he manages context switching while running over four companies.

Entrepreneur Amit Paranjape quipped that he thought there was a reverse correlation. He added that with the advent of smartphone cameras, random UFO sightings seem to have reduced.

A user even shared a meme of how cameras used to capture images in 1939 versus what they capture in 2021 when a UFO is sighted.

Justifying the resolution of the UFO pictures, one person said that the alleged aliens’ swift movement distorts photographs.

Gamer Chris Covent asked Ms Musk if he is saying that aliens do not exist because there is no 4K image [of the UFOs].

Mr Musk has shared his takes about aliens several times on the micro-blogging site. In 2020, the 49-year-old billionaire had tweeted that the pyramids of Egypt had been built by aliens. He even received an invite from Rania A Al Mashat, Minister of International Cooperation, to visit Egypt and check how the pyramids were built.
