“It would be nice to have a bit more free time for myself as opposed to just working day and night. From when I wake up to when I go to sleep. Seven days a week, Pretty intense.”
Last month, Musk asked his followers on Twitter whether he should sell 10% of his stake in the electric-car maker to pay taxes, to which the majority agreed. He has since sold shares worth nearly $12 billion.
Lawyers have said, the billionaire’s Twitter banter; and lively interactions with followers have raised regulatory and corporate governance questions in the past. Musk, in 2018 was fined $20 million by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for his tweets and was required to step down as chairman.
Howard Fischer, a partner at law firm Moses & Singer; said he doubted Musk’s latest tweets violated any rules because they were too vague.
