Musk is shaking up twitter again. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX asked his followers what they think about him quitting his jobs.
“Thinking of quitting my jobs and becoming an influencer full-time. What do you think?” Elon Musk, asked his followers.
If Musk really decided to quit and become an influencer, he would have good mentors. Mr. Beast, one of the most successful YouTubers, immediately offered to coach him.
Musk was apparently grateful, but later dismissed the idea of starting a YouTube channel. He called YouTube “noobtoob” – borrowing the video game term “noob” – referring to new and inexperienced players.
He did, however, entertain the idea of making an OnlyFans account.
It is not clear whether Musk was serious with the tweet and the replies, as he has a history of trolling. One Twitter user pointed that out in the replies and got a laugh out of the tech CEO.

However, in January, Musk did talk about eventually quitting his job a bit more seriously.
“It would be nice to have a bit more free time on my hands as opposed to just working day and night, from when I wake up to when I go to sleep 7 days a week. Pretty intense,” he said.
Musk is the richest man on Earth but also has a very hectic schedule. Yet, despite his many obligations, he still manages to find time to troll users on Twitter.
Musk Bought More Shares Than He Sold
In November, Musk asked his Twitter followers whether or not he should sell 10% of his shares of Tesla. The majority said yes. Tesla is now trading at $988, down 0.88% on the day, as Musk continues to sell shares.
Specifically, a newly-released SEC filing shows that he sold an additional $963 million in Tesla stocks. Furthermore, he sold $9.85 billion in Tesla shares in October.
At the same time, Musk is exercising his stock options to buy back shares. So far, the net balance is on the buying side. In total, he sold 11.03 million Tesla shares and exercised options to buy 12.87 million shares. He now has more shares of Tesla than he did before he started selling shares.
