Upon taking to Twitter earlier today to interact with his followers, Elon Musk was asked to delete his Facebook pages for Tesla and SpaceX. It didn't seem to take much convincing, as Musk had them removed right away. Each page had over 2.5 million followers.

The decision to eliminate his companies' Facebook accounts arrives as the social media platform has been having a fairly rough week due to the ever-circulating #DeleteFacebook initiative. The hashtag was spawned in response to reports that tech firm Cambridge Analytical stole information from over 50 million people on the website without their knowledge. This data allegedly aided in Donald Trump being elected.

In addition, Musk has had issues with Facebook head honcho Mark Zuckerberg in the past, dating back to 2016 when SpaceX’s failed launch killed one of Zuckerberg's satellites.
