Tesla CEO Elon Musk is getting darker on Twitter – at least that's what he claims.
Musk tweeted a little before Monday 1 hour that he "just removed [his] Twitter account ", although he does not know if he's joking." The 47-year-old billionaire did not immediately give more details about why he was deleting his account, but changed his profile picture in a black image and its treatment in "Daddy DotCom. "His account seemed to remain active on Monday, despite that he said he was closing his account.
At around 6:30 am, Musk tweeted about the fact that he wanted to offer his supporters a "starter gift" by organizing a special gift for cryptocurrency fans. The co-founder of Tesla announced the offer in a publication of Medium, explaining that the marketing department of Tesla had the idea.
"It is [really] something haha. Will soon delete the account, "tweeted Musk after announcing his farewell gift. He then followed up with a tweet an hour later, teasing, "Or maybe not."
Tesla did not immediately respond to FOX Business's request for comment Monday morning.
The CEO is a frequent Twitter user, but his tweets had already thrown him into hot water.
Musk was fined $ 20 million after the US Securities and Exchange Commission filed a complaint for publishing "false and misleading" tweets. One of the tweets reported on August 7, 2018, said, "I am thinking of taking Tesla privately at $ 420. Financing assured. "

The SEC and Musk then reached an agreement in April, stating that the CEO was free to tweet everything he wanted, with the exception of information about his company's finances and business relationships, such as possible or planned mergers, production figures or sales, TechCrunch said.
