Elon Musk has made a dig at Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg after thousands of social media users were forced out of Facebook and Instagram.

We previously reported that Facebook users took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to say that they had been logged out of the social media platform, along with Instagram, Threads and Messenger.

Now, the owner of X has taken to his social media app in a sly dig as he boasts about his company's servers running smoothly.

Musk said: "If you're reading this post, it's because our servers are working."

He also posted another message which said: We know why you're all here rn".

People took to the comments to share their thoughts on the post with one user saying: "Best social media playground and it's not even close."

Another said: "Flex on them."

Whilst a third added: "Thank you to the entire X team."

A fourth said: "X is taking over."

A fifth said: "I knew you'd never miss the opportunity to take a shot."

Reports suggest that Facebook is starting to return for some users, however, other apps and websites seem to still be affected.
