If you're checking my profile, yeah, that tweet was probably sarcasm. Just here to watch the place burn.

I think I have a pretty good idea what happened with the SMS decision yesterday.

Some people are mentioning Elon talked about fraud creating high costs for SMS 2FA. (Account security via login codes sent to your phone.) This is known as Toll Fraud and is nothing new.

1/14 How toll fraud works is, someone in a position to collect fees for delivering messages (a phone company) creates a bunch of traffic or pays a bounty to someone else who will do that for them. This happens more intentionally as there are fewer laws and they can charge more.
