Elon Musk On Twitter: Instead of tossing away Tesla shares and other physical items to make a point, Elon Musk could probably throw away his phone and uninstall Twitter.
10 Tweets Elon Musk on Twitter
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, made stupid statements on Twitter, which cost the electric carmaker and its stockholders a lot of money. Here are ten instances Elon Musk and Tesla have gotten into problems due to the former’s tweets.
1. Tesla is excluded from the us $ 1 trillion club in the musk vs bernie showdown
In October, Tesla became the sixth firm in the United States to hit the $1 trillion mark. However, Elon Musk’s Sunday Twitter feud with Congressman Bernie Sanders over the ‘tax the rich’ discussion cost him some gains. We’re still baffled as to why the world’s richest man is so opposed to paying taxes.
2. Lawsuit for US $ 162 million online mistakes return to bite
JP Morgan has filed a $162 million lawsuit against Tesla and Elon Musk for the latter’s 2018 tweets, alleging that the carmaker deceived them. The problem began when Elon Musk said in 2018 that he would take Tesla private, causing stock prices to plummet.
3. Elon musk removed as tesla’s board chair
Elon Musk’s position as chairman of the Tesla board of directors was also jeopardized due to the infamous 2018 tweet. Musk’s ‘going-private tweet was market-moving, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
4. Selling shares on the base of a twitter poll
We have no idea whether Elon Musk is winning the tax-the-rich discussion. Before the Bernie Sanders controversy, Tesla had already lost ground when he slammed another Congressman, Ron Wyden. Musk allowed a Twitter poll to decide whether or not he should sell 10% of his Tesla stock, and the result concluded that he should. Tesla’s stock price plummeted as a result.
5. Elon Musk’s tweets gave him the title of world’s richest man
Elon Musk fell to second place on Bloomberg’s list of the world’s wealthiest persons in February. It was primarily due to a drop in Tesla’s value due to Musk’s remark that Bitcoin prices were increasing too quickly. This remark was made just days after Tesla disclosed its Bitcoin holdings on its balance sheet. We’re curious if Musk despises his own Tesla. In any case, Elon Musk has reclaimed his title as the world’s richest person.
6. Is it low enough? tesla’s value is reduced by $14 billion due to musk
In 2020, Elon Musk commented that Tesla’s stock prices were a little too high. And with that, Tesla’s market worth has plummeted by $14 billion. Musk may not have been upset by the loss of a few billion dollars, but other stockholders were not.
7. Musk’s dangerous and dumb covid tweets
With his tweets, wealthy genius Elon Musk fueled Covid ignorance in the United States and worldwide. Musk took his 63.8 million followers down a dangerous path by labeling the Covid scare “stupid,” falsely stating that children are immune, criticizing stay-at-home orders, and incorrectly expecting a drop in cases in the US.
8. Pedo guy,’ calls rescue diver
After the entrepreneur made the ‘pedo man’ remark, a British cave diver sued Elon Musk for defamation. Musk won the lawsuit and was not held liable for the losses. But, given that Musk hung out with Ghislaine Maxwell, who is accused of sex trafficking in the Jeffrey Epstein case, I’m not sure what gives him the right to wrongly label someone a paedophile.
9. The time he said kanye west for president (now ‘ye’)
Without a doubt, Elon Musk has a sizable following and impact. However, if his influence helps American rapper ‘Ye’ become President of the United States, not everyone would be pleased.
10. Pronouns are bad, but Cryptic names are not.
Elon Musk says he supports transgender individuals, but he doesn’t know what pronouns to use. What about his children’s bizarre names?
We don’t know if Elon Musk believes he is the wealthy bad boy troll and a reincarnation of Tony Stark, but it’s worth considering who is being trolled.
