Elon Musk is perhaps the most discussed name on Twitter these days and his latest tweet “per aspera ad astra” has his English fans wondering what the meaning of the phrase is and if it has anything to do with his latest venture.
The billionaire just bought Twitter and has huge plans in mind for the social networking platform.
He has shared a series of tweets after acquiring it for a whopping $44 billion and as always, his posts have sparked interesting conversations among fans.
Meaning of ‘per aspera ad astra’
Is Elon Latin? No, he isn’t. Then what does ‘per aspera ad astra’ mean?
It is a Latin phrase that translates to “through hardships to the stars” or “our aspirations take us to the stars”.
It is one of many phrases that use the words “to the stars.”
Now, Elon’s tweet shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the recent deal he struck with Twitter.
Many of his fans are now hoping he will go ahead and acquire other social networking and gaming giants. But, at the time of writing, the billionaire is simply celebrating his most recent achievement.

There was a lot of uncertainty around Elon purchasing Twitter until it was confirmed on April 26.
He confirmed the deal by sharing a screenshot that read: “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.”
“Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it,” he added.
Three weeks ago, he bought a 9.2 per cent stake in Twitter and became the company’s majority shareholder.
Did Elon Musk joke about deleting Facebook?
Elon has a reputation for the nature of tweets that he shares.
Many are currently under the impression that he’s going to buy and then delete Facebook – all thanks to one viral Tweet.
After his deal with Twitter was confirmed, a post that appeared to have been shared by Elon started making rounds.
It said: “Now I’m going to buy Facebook and delete it haha.”
However, the tweet wasn’t shared via his official account. Therefore, the rumors claiming Elon is going to acquire Facebook are untrue, at least for now.
