Tesla's Elon Musk becomes 'Daddy DotCom' on Twitter

18 Juin, 2019, 03:35 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

Serial-tweeting Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter Sunday night that he "just deleted" his account, 10 months after his use of the social media site to pump up the electric auto company's investment prospects landed him in trouble with US securities regulators. Musk might've taken it a step further when he changed his Twitter handle to Daddy DotCom and tweeted that he was done with the social media site. Then he signalled in a tweet that he was scrapping the account. But the account was still active hours later.

Tesla didn't immediately respond to a request for comment and Musk hadn't explained his earlier tweets on Twitter as of Monday afternoon.

After midnight on Monday, Musk tweeted, "Just deleted my Twitter account".

L'Olympique Lyonnais s'intéresserait à de nombreux joueurs auriverde lors de ce mercato comme Filipe Luis et Pedro. Mais pour renforcer le couloir gauche de sa défense, Lyon pourrait finalement prendre un chemin moins onéreux.

The biggest flap occurred last August when he tweeted that he had lined up the financing necessary to buy Tesla in a buyout that would have likely cost more than $20 billion, causing the electric auto maker's stock to swing wildly. Musk and Tesla each paid $20 million in to settle with the SEC.

Under a settlement with the regulator, he is required to have a securities lawyer to review tweets that have material information about the company before publishing. Rather than apologise, add a credit in a reply or repost the art with a credit attached, he followed up with "always credit everyone", "no one should be credited with anything ever" and the doozy below, then deleted all of them, including the original image tweet.
