Electric car billionaire Elon Musk has expressed regret over the sale of his shares in Tesla, Inc. as part of the multi-billion dollar purchase of the social media platform Twitter. Musk, who bought Twitter last year after a lot of media hype, has had a rough few months on the site, especially since he had to run three companies at the same time. The executive has also publicly criticized the network’s previous management for “managing” content on the social network, and his latest statements suggest the task of managing one of the world’s largest networks while his other company, SpaceX, is hurtling toward a major flight test. causes, to put it mildly, some regrets.
In the months since the acquisition, Musk has realized how difficult it will be to completely change the way Twitter works. He’s been looking for a replacement for Twitter’s CEO for some time now, and his current role at the company also took an interesting turn in December when the CEO decided to ask his followers if they’d like him to stay in the top job. In the course of the Twitter buyout, he sold a huge amount of Tesla shares and also received funding from Middle Eastern investors.
Now Musk appears to be hesitant to buy again. In a series of tweets, the executive responded to one of the followers who stated that he still couldn’t believe he bought Twitter, stating that he couldn’t believe it either. The executive went on to add that “it’s a pity I had to sell so many shares of Tesla to do this (sigh).”
