So basically the original tweet sent as a joke implied the stock was going to $420.... and now it has.
Maybe the SEC should return the fines, retract the sanctions, maybe even apologize.
Or better yet cover all the shorts that relied on the SEC information.

Even in joking, his tweet changed the stock performance and doesn't matter if it went up, down or no change...the potential was there...therefore illegal at that time

Tusk still has his SEC training wheels on and wonder what kind of lawyer he has on staff. Should be generalist as Chief Counsel with specialists. One should be an SEC specialist and/or direct link to outside SEC Counsel(s)

He seems to have learned just a bit, but time will tell

What I don't understand is the sudden increase in stock price. I haven't seen any rumors or substance justifying the drive up, except maybe an effort to trap the short sellers.

I think the SEC complaint changed the stock performance more than the tweet.

There has been a lot of talk about manufacturers coming to grips with the lead that Tesla has. It was supposed to be as simple as waiting until there was a market and then just start building EV’s. Except it hasn’t turned out like that. All the Tesla killers have been sales flops. Ipace, ETron, twice as expensive with less performance and lots of problems. Less range even though they have bigger more expensive batteries. Mercedes with another 1 year delay with the EQC. No manufacturer with any real commitment to expanding fast charging networks although Nissan continues to add Chademo facilities. Investors are taking notice of the obvious and the narrative is following. It will be interesting to see how the “big two” Ford and GM respond from the North American side. Lots of talk. Within two years GM says they will have dozens of EV models to choose from. Ford hasn’t made any big plans yet. 50,000 mustangs a year and plans for a truck. Nothing big yet. Toyota has no plans for BEV’s yet. I think 2020 will see lots of new reveals. Time will tell.

I could say a lot about all of this, but Musk seems to be running more than a Automotive Company.

Plus theres those Gigafactories 3 n 4 coming,while GM closes their!

Also Ive never heard anyone test driving Tesla saying anything NEgative about it,on the contrary,its that good.

Tesla doesnt even ADvertise and stil has customers waiting years for its cars,its all word of mouth.
Once more people know about Tesla more sales folow.

I showed Tesla review to one of my neigbors and he went and bought two,one for himself and one for his wife.

This would be impressive, if these people were not buying with other peoples money.

Like many of the so called gig economy companies, they do not really make money. There are now so many of them, that people think this is the norm.
Ubre, lyft, WE, a bunch of the meal prep outfits, Jet black,even gasp Amazon! They have all been providng a service or product below cost. The public is not stupid. They recognize when something is below cost, and if it appeals to them, they will buy it.

Starstruck investors keep giving them money in the belief that tremendous profits will come in the future.

Cracks in this attitude are starting to show.
Quite a few meal companies have cut back or gone away, Ubers founder will be out of the stock by Jan 1, We's founder was forced out, and its valuation is plummeting. A lot of the primary investors are wooried about it's viability.
Jet Black, incubated by Walmart is a concergie service. For 600.00 a year, one can get access to it. A text message and they will bring you pretty much anything you want. Walmart touts the looong waiting list they have of people wanting to sign up... The problem is that they lose $15,000 a year per customer! Basic math puts the break even point at 15,600 per year. How many of those customers will be around at that price? Walmart recently put his booming buisiness up for sale. I haven't read of any interest.
Amazon, has grown into a dominate company, changing the way America buys stuff. Yet their retail division (by far the largest of the company) does not reliably turn a profit. They keep investing more money in the future dreams.
Drone delivery, taking on UPS, Their Prime membership. etc. Their profit center is the cloud computing division. It makes a ton of money on little investment.

Tesla is a complicated outfit with many moving parts, run by a crackpot. He so far has been sucesssful at hiding the ball.

I do not know how long any of these outfits will continue on.
I do know that any traditional company would not be given the benefit of the doubt as these companies have been.
