Elon Musk Makes a Major Promise to Iranians and Cubans

Elon Musk’s prominence continues to grow.

The chief executive of Tesla (TSLA) has more than 106.2 million followers on Twitter, one of the platforms where trendsetters and opinion makers meet, news is often broken, and agendas are set.

Just four people have more: Former US President Barack Obama with 133 million followers, and three pop stars: Justin Bieber (114 million), Katy Perry (108.9 million) and Rihanna (106.6 million).

One way Musk has built his following is, as The Street has extensively reported, by being unafraid to weigh in on world affairs, especially as they connect with the companies he runs: Tesla, the clean-energy-vehicle leader, Neuralink, the medical- tech developer, SpaceX, the rocket tech and service provider, and Boring Co., the construction-services company.
