After the Bitcoin Buy Tweet, Twitter Locked Elon Musk’s Account

Twitter took the unusual step of locking Elon Musk’s account yesterday after the billionaire Space X and Tesla founder posted a lighthearted tweet asking a follower if they would like to buy bitcoin. Revealing this in  a tweet posted earlier today, Musk said:

Over the past few months, Musk has faced a series of controversies linked to his activity on Twitter. His declaration that he could take Tesla private for $420 a share which he made on Twitter ultimately landed him in trouble with the SEC, leading to a $20 million fine and an order to step aside as Tesla chairman for at least 3 years. He also famously got into a war of words with a diver involved in the Thai cave rescue, describing him as a pedophile – an action that led to legal action on the part of the diver.

Earlier in October, following the settlement of his case with the SEC, Musk also took a dig at the agency, describing it as the “Shortseller Enrichment Commission”.
