Social networks have been a brand in the way La Libertad Avanza and Milei himself communicate, even once in government. Hence his connection with technology entrepreneurs is close. An example of this is the link that unites him to the current owner of X (former Twitter), Elon Musk.

Indeed, the magnate was one of the promoters of the current president's candidacy through social networks. In September, he responded to American host Tucker Carlson, who interviewed the libertarian leader: “Government overspending, which is the root cause of inflation, has ruined countless countries.”
Milei even invited Musk to the presidential inauguration on December 10, but the billionaire did not attend. “Today I had a great conversation with Elon Musk, where I thanked him for defending the ideas of freedom and supporting our work, especially taking into account everything he represents as an icon of freedom in the world,” the head of state wrote then. .

Who is Sean Rad?
Rad is an American entrepreneur and co-founder of the dating app Tinder. Born in Los Angeles on May 22, 1986, he graduated from Milken Community School in 2004 and then attended the University of Southern California, where he majored in business. At that time he founded his first company, a mobile marketing company called Adly.
In 2012, Rad co-founded Tinder with Justin Mateen and Jonathan Badeen. The app, which allows users to swipe left or right to indicate whether or not they are interested in another person, quickly became a hit. In 2014, the app recorded one billion “swipes” per day.
Rad was CEO of Tinder until 2017, when he was fired by parent company Match Group. Since then, he has founded several startups, including e-commerce platform RadPad. In 2013, he was named one of Forbes magazine's “30 Under 30″.
