The billionaire CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, has previously stated on Twitter that he is an alien – but seems to have changed his mind on the subject.
On Tuesday, Musk tweeted: 'Strongest argument against aliens' along with two charts that shows camera resolution has advanced, but UFO pictures have remained the same.
The post in the early hours of the morning on March 23 concludes that extraterrestrials don't exist, due to most images showing floating blobs, but many of the comments argue otherwise.
One user replied 'that's exactly what an alien would tweet,' while another explains that most cameras 'are only capturing 400-700 nanometers' and are not capable of capturing 'true reality.'
Musk, who is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX received more than 11,000 comments, 41,000 shares and 400,000 likes to the post.
Many of his bizarre tweets typically get a lot of attention, but due to Musk's reputation in the space industry, this one sparked a debate.
Artificial Intelligence scientist Lex Fridman was among those who disagree with the tweet, who said 'this is exactly what an alien would tweet.'
Entrepreneur Amit Paranjape added that since the birth of smartphones, random UFO sightings have dropped.
Twitter user 'Evilspot' seems to not believe Musk's claim saying: 'He does believe aliens are real… it's just kind of upsetting that every 'ufo sightings' is like 180p or something..why are the images always look like crap!'

And another user by the name of 'Ash WSB' said 'the issue is Aliens move very fast.'
Musk has shown a flip-flopping opinion as not only has he tweeted 'I am an alien,' but also made the claim in 2020 that the Egyptian pyramids were made by extraterrestrials.
The tweet gave credit to 'aliens' for building the pyramids in Giza near Cairo in July 2020 as he wrote: 'Aliens built the pyramids obv.'
The bizarre message, however, prompted a response from Egypt's Minister of International Cooperation, Rania al-Mashat.

'I follow your work with a lot of admiration' wrote al-Mashat via Twitter.
'I invite you & Space X to explore the writings about how the pyramids were built and also to check out the tombs of the pyramid builders. Mr. Musk, we are waiting for you,' she added.
Musk seemed to take the claim back in a follow up social media post linking to an article describing how the pyramids were more likely built by humans living in an Egyptian settlement.
'This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done,' Musk wrote, linking to a story with the headline, 'The Private Lives of the Pyramid-builders'.
Musk's current opinion that aliens do not exist comes just two days after the US government said it has evidence of UFOs breaking the sound barrier without a sonic boom and making maneuvers impossible with known technology, the former Director of National Intelligence has revealed.
