Musk tweeted on Saturday that author Stephen King is invited to Twitter HQ.

Stephen King has proved himself to be one of Elon Musk's harshest critics, but their ongoing battle may be taking a turn towards a truce in the near future after Musk tweeted that King is invited to Twitter's headquarters.

After taking over the social media site in October, billionaire and Tesla CEO Musk has received much criticism from many who believe that Twitter is on the decline under his leadership, including horror novelist King.

In King's most recent tweet about Musk, he wrote, "I think Elon Musk is a visionary. Almost singlehandedly, he's changed the way Americans think about automobiles. I have a Tesla and love it. That said, he's been a terrible fit for Twitter. He appears to be making it up as he goes along."

In response, Musk wrote, "Suggestions are welcome Mr. [King]," using a crown emoji in place of King's last name.

Another user suggested in the thread that Musk invite King to Twitter headquarters in San Francisco to "have a face-to-face conversation," a tweet to which Musk simply replied, "He is invited!"
