THE man behind the 'absolute unit' tweet has bagged himself a new job working with billionaire Elon Musk, following an exchange on social media.

Adam Koszary has brought the Museum of English Rural Life's (MERL) Twitter account international recognition with a number of funny posts.

Mr Koszary recently went to battle with the Tesla owner after he appropriated MERL's profile picture, forcing them to retaliate and use his face as their image.

Mr Koszary said: "I'm no longer moving to the Royal Academy. Instead, I'll be Tesla's Social Media Manager from July."
