Elon Musk Talks On Mars, Birth Rate, Skips Twitter At Tech Conference: Report

Elon Musk avoided discussing the collapsed Twitter deal, only repeating allegations of fake account issues at the social media platform, as he addressed an audience of moguls on Saturday, two people who attended the conference told Reuters.

In a wide-reaching interview Saturday, Musk spent most of his time talking about Mars and extolled the virtues of boosting birth rates on Earth, one of the sources said. Musk, Chief Executive of Tesla Inc and rocket company Space X, has said he aims to establish a civilization on Mars.

Musk earlier this week said that he will do his best to help what he called "the underpopulation crisis," following a media report that said he had twins with a top executive at his brain-chip start-up Neuralink.
