Elon Musk make a boo-boo today, accidentally tweeting his phone number to 16.7 million Twitter followers today.

So, if you feel the need to ask Musk for a small loan of a million or maybe two million dollars, or just want someone to talk through your yearly holiday blues, go ahead and press those ten little digits.

The Tesla and SpaceX founder committed a Twitter no-no by accidentally tweeting out his cell phone on the micro-blogging site.

Trump's judge nominee withdraws after 'worst two minutes on television'
Another one of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees has withdrawn after a video surfaced that made him look incompetent. Petersen , who was being considered for a lifetime appointment on the bench, was unable to answer those basic questions.

Musk was trying to reach John Carmack, the chief technology officer at Oculus, Facebook's virtual reality subdivision. When you hear it, take pride in knowing that, as the message says, "By the Gods, you've done it! My cell is..." Musk then added his number, and the tweet got out long enough for at least a few of his Twitter followers to call it before Musk deleted the tweet.

'Somehow you've found your way here to me. In January 2015, Musk tweeted photos of a SpaceX drone-landing ship at Carmack and said his motivation was to get the programmer back into aerospace technology, TechCrunch reported at the time. "I offer you my congratulations and my respect". None of the Musk's companies has publicly commented on the post either.

Facebook owns Oculus and a representative told Bloomberg Carmack doesn't plan to leave the company. Instead his ringing music (or potentially voicemail greeting) was a message recorded by God of War creator David Jaffe.
