Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has criticised Meta owner Mark Zuckerberg for being "excessively greedy". He said that the Facebook owner takes credits for advertisers' campaigns on its platforms which he should not, India Today reported.

The dispute unfolded after a user posted on X formerly known as Twitter about the attribution of conversions in advertising campaigns on both X and Meta platforms.

The user shared that despite running ad campaigns on both the platforms, the majority of conversions came from Meta while only some were from X.

Furthermore, he added that when ads were deactivated on X, overall conversion rates attributed to Meta would also decrease.

The Space X chief executive replied to the post saying, "Yeah, we are a terrible at claiming credit and Meta is super greedy at claiming credit. There is a major class action lawsuit against Meta for their false claims."

Another Musk follower posted that "eventually Meta will need to revise their attribution model, revealing the truth to advertisers who are already noticing a decline in results."

In another post Musk took a shot at Meta and it social media platforms suggesting that these platforms controlled peoples voice while X on the other hand supported "freedom of Speech".

He wrote: "Only X resisted censoring your voice."
