“Considering quitting my job and becoming a full-time influencer — what do you think,” Musk tweeted Thursday. However, he did not write more than this one sentence.
I’m thinking about quitting my job and becoming a full-time influencer
– Elon Musk December 10, 2021
In January, Musk announced that he wanted to be at the helm of Tesla for several more years.
Musk is known for his ambiguous statements on Twitter, where he has nearly 66 million followers. His tweets have repeatedly caused sharp swings in Tesla’s stock in the past. Musk still owns a large stake in the pioneering electric car company that he founded and its president.
Tesla is currently worth about $900 billion on the stock exchange – more than any other automaker. In November, Musk asked via Twitter if he should give up ten percent of his stake, which was largely confirmed by the community. Since then, he has sold more than $12 billion of Tesla stock.
Musk is also the founder and president of the space company SpaceX. He also runs infrastructure company The Boring Company and Neuralink, which is developing a computer chip that enables communication between the human brain and a computer.
Tesla stock was trading 1.32 percent higher at $1017.03 by the Nasdaq close.
