Don't need the cash. Devoting myself to Mars and Earth. Possession just weigh you down. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 1, 2020

Previously, the Musk and the American Commission on securities and stock exchanges have signed an agreement under which the Musk is not entitled to tweeting about the company without the consent of lawyers of the Tesla.
however, he paid a fine of $ 20 million and resigned as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Tesla for three years. Musk went on this in order to avoid fraud charges and lawsuits because of his tweet about the intention to make a company Tesla to the public. He did nothing to implement this intention.
