We All know this January 2021, Elon Musk did a golden advertisement for an app called Signal and slammed Facebook for its latest Privacy and policy updates and suggested his 42 million followers use an encryptied messaging app called Signal.
Use Signal— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) January 7, 2021
Many people have retweeted musk’s Tweet, one of them was Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey, After Musk’s tweet, the signal was overflowed by new users that they have to tweet about the load and delay for verifications codes for new users.
Verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because so many new people are trying to join Signal right now (we can barely register our excitement). We are working with carriers to resolve this as quickly as possible. Hang in there.— Signal (@signalapp) January 7, 2021
And the funniest part was people started to buy shares of Signal which do not belong to signal,
On Jan. 6, shares of Signal Advance SIGL, -22.10% closed at 60 cents a share, a solid gain for the Rosharon, Texas-based biotechnology company formerly known as Biodyne Development Company.
A day later, on Thursday, the company’s shares surged 527% to $3.76 — and then all heck broke lose, after apparent ticker confusion amplified a move in the over-counter-traded security into the ether. The surge came after Tesla Inc. TSLA, 0.50%. CEO Elon Musk recommended that people “use signal,” shifting to the encrypted-messaging platform Signal from Twitter TWTR, 0.68% and Facebook FB, 0.35%, following the Sturm und Drang over politics and social-media platforms after the riots on Capitol Hill last week.
