Elon Musk Asks Billgates If he shorted Tesla

Elon Musk says he asked Bill Gates via text message if he had shorted Tesla stock after the Microsoft co-founder approached him about philanthropy.

When asked on Twitter if a screenshot of text messages, allegedly between the two billionaires, was genuine...

For that Elon said: Yeah, but I didn’t reveal it to NYT. They must have got it through friends of friends.

Elon told that he heard from multiple sources at TED that Gates still had half billion short against Tesla, which is why I asked him, so it’s not exactly top secret.

A spokesperson for Bill Gates was not immediately available for comment about the exchange.

According to the leaked conversation, Bill gates agreed that he shorted half a billion dollar worth tesla stocks and hasn't closed it out.

Musk said, he cant take philanthropy on climate change seriously as he has a massive position against Tesla, the company doing the most to solve climate change.
