Elon Musk: 'Twitter's a war zone'

SpaceX founder and chief executive Elon Musk speaks after announcing Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa as the first private passenger on a trip around the moon in Hawthorne Calif. on Sept. 17 2018

Elon Musk says he has "no respect" for the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) financial regulator.

Tesla chief executive Elon Musk has said nobody is vetting his tweets months after a dispute with the US Securities and Exchange Commission over social media posts that sent Tesla's share price soaring.

Musk acknowledged that he was "somewhat impulsive", adding that he "didn't really want to try to adhere to some CEO template". But he said he was adhering to the agreement because he respects the US justice system. "That's not realistic, in the sense that I'm the largest shareholder in the company, and I can just call for a shareholder vote and get anything done that I want", Musk told Stahl. Musk on nearly bankrupting Tesla to meet Model 3 production goals:There's been relentless criticism-relentless and outrageous and unfair.

"I am the largest shareholder of the company", Musk proclaimed.

When Musk was asked if he would like to go back to being chairman, he replied, "I prefer no titles at all". Musk credited the decision to build a third general assembly line outside under a tent with saving the company. "Those betting against the company were right by all conventional standards that we would fail". Musk said there's been an "aggressive campaign" by the United Auto Workers to attack Tesla with a "load of nonsense" in an effort to unionize the carmaker. That is the price of the vehicle Tesla originally promised would be an electric sedan for the masses when it was first unveiled in March 2016.

Musk admitted he is notorious for missing deadlines. The tweet sent Tesla's stock soaring.

While Barra was speaking with legislators on Thursday, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV said it will reopen one of its idle engine plant in Detroit and build a new Jeep, intensifying the irritation in Congress over GM's plan to cut jobs. "Funding secured", Musk agreed that his "communications relating to the company... including Twitter" would be overseen by the Tesla board.

Musk told Leslie Stahl that no one reviews his tweets before they go out, despite being told he can't tweet things that could impact his stocks.

Tesla now only has one assembly plant, located in Fremont, California. He said he uses Twitter to express himself. "Some people use their hair", he laughs.
