The occasional use of Musk on Twitter has caused him problems in the past. Last year, he claimed in a tweet that he "planned" to take Tesla privately at $ 420 per share and that he had secured funds for the transaction. The Securities and Exchange Commission later stated that the funding was not secure and accused Musk in a lawsuit to mislead the investors.
Tweeting that he deleted his Twitter is not explicitly among these rules.
Tesla did not immediately respond to the request for comment.
