He Tweets When He Wants, He Tweets When He Wants…

Twitter has been wild this year. Come on, look at this…


However, one particular user took over our timelines this year and we’re not talking about Donald Trump or Kanye West (or the absolute unit above) we’re talking about Tesla CEO, Elon Musk.

So, if you’ve never seen his Tweets yet, you’re in for a wild ride. Yes, we’re going to overuse that word until 2018 is up. Recently, the Tesla CEO announced that he’s still free to ‘do, say and tweet’ whatever he pleases. Why would he not be allowed to? We hear you ask. Fine, here’s a brief timeline.


  • August: Musk announced he wanted to take Tesla private, saying he has secured funding from Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund.
  • Tesla’s price went up straight after.
  • Though, It became clear that he didn’t have a deal in place.
  • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigated.
  • September: He paid a £20 million fine and stepped down as chairman of Tesla. Appointing two new independent directors to the board.
  • Musk also had to provide oversight of his communications about Tesla, this includes the tweets.


Right, the boring context bit is over. 

However, Musk told CBS in a recent interview that none of his tweets are censored since reaching a settlement with the SEC in September. Only the ones that directly affect the movement of Tesla stocks. Nobody reads his tweets when he presses send.

Now, we know we said in a previous article that we’re not BuzzFeed with this whole list thing. But, it seemed kinda’ fun. So, to lighten up your Wednesday, we thought we’d give you a bit of a rundown on our favourite Elon Musk tweets. We love you, Elon.


We love a relatable legend. This won’t affect stock prices though, right? 


Anything for you, Elon.

End of the world

We’re starting to understand why he made those flamethrowers now. 


An interesting choice of numbers to take Tesla private.

At this point, we don’t even know what to say.


Right, do BuzzFeed write these mini captions on every single point in their list?

Finally, something we can both agree on.
