New Delhi: Who would’ve thought that Gen-Z’s favorite Twitter poster boy would eventually end up bidding to buy the platform? Well, whatever twisted turn of events led to the $44 billion Twitter bid, we’re here now. Thanks to Twitter, we surely get to hear a lot of Elon Musk‘s thoughts (peculiar or not), but rarely do we get to hear about his autism spectrum disorder (ASD) condition or the Asperger’s syndrome that he suffers from – as he claimed while hosting SNL (Saturday Night Live).

Asperger’s syndrome

A condition that lies on the autism spectrum, Asperger’s syndrome is a neurodevelopmental disorder. Since 2013, Asperger’s syndrome is not classified as a separate condition. Instead, it falls under the umbrella term of autism spectrum disorders, or simple ASD. It is a neurobiological disorder and so far, the precise cause of this condition remains unknown. Abnormalities in the brain or genetics are suspected to be involving the risk factors.
