Elon Musk Wants to Change Starlink’s Default WiFi Name to ‘Stinky’

Always in the trend of making witty and sometimes controversial statements, the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, has created a frenzy yet again.

Tesla founder has expressed his desire to rename Wi-Fi for Starlink to ‘Stinky’. He wants to change Starlink’s default WiFi name to Stinky and as always, no one is telling if he’s kidding. “We’re changing Starlink’s default wifi name to Stinky” the SpaceX boss announced on Twitter.

“I’m pretty sure that unique,” he wrote in the following tweet, “This will encourage people to change it haha,” and then, inexplicably, “If you can’t smell your wifi, how do you know it’s real?” Anyway who knows what’s real now? At any rate, if it was a joke, it left Twitter divided. Most didn’t sell on humor at all.

Musk’s latest tweet has taken the internet by storm.

One user mocked Musk saying he was a kid, while another wrote, “It’s too easy! I’ll ask my cat!”

Starlink is a high-speed broadband internet service provider serving 400,000+ customers globally. The company has launched 2500+ satellites into Low Earth Orbit (LEO).

It aims to provide high-speed internet at affordable prices around the world and claims to provide internet speeds up to 600 times faster than the average speed in the US. Their service is currently available in 32 countries.

Recently, Musk once again talked about the issue of population decline on the micro-blogging platform.

Musk recorded his concern about the falling birth rate in the US in a new tweet, joking that he was doing his part in solving the issue.

Musk shared data about the United States’ Total Fertility Rate (TFR) in May. TFR refers to the number of children a woman can have.

The graph highlights the steep decline in the rate over the decades, to a point where it is below the “replacement level”.

Citing this tweet, Musk further said that “the past two years have been a demographic disaster,” building on the already established case of humans running low for the future. Continuing in the same thread, Musk joked, “I mean, I’m doing my job.”
