Bill Gates Shorting Elon Musk’s Tesla Stocks

Bill gates shorting Elon Musk’s Tesla Stocks as the billionaire speaks about the future of Twitter at the hands of the Space X CEO. A week after the announcement of the $44 billion acquisition of Twitter, Bill Gates says Musk “could make it worse”.

At the Wall Street Journal’s CEO on Wednesday, he expressed his skepticism on the ability of Musk to prevent misinformation. “ How does he feel about something that says vaccine kills people, or you know, that Bill Gates is tracking people? Is that one of the things he thinks should be spread?” Gates asked.

“If all you need is money and hiring great engineers, he’s probably as good a person as any” to guide Twitter through its next chapter, Gates added. He doesn’t expect Musk to replicate Tesla and Space X’s “mind-blowing” performance.

“I kinda doubt that’ll happen this time, but we should have an open mind and never underestimate Elon.”

This is not the first time that the billionaires faced off in such banter. Just a few days ago that Elon tweeted that Bill Gates was shorting Tesla’s stock.

Bill Gates said that Elon’s tweets does not bother him and did not comment about Tesla stocks.

“It’s possible that the stock went down and whoever shorted the stock made money. I don’t know,” Gates. “Did it go down in the last month? I don’t know.  I don’t think whether one is short or long Tesla is a statement about your seriousness about climate change. I am putting billions of dollars into climate change innovation; I applaud Tesla’s role in helping with climate change.”

While Musk is planning to make changes to Twitter, Gates hopes that policymakers will develop their changes to the “legal framework, which he’ll have to follow”.
