Say what you want about Elon Musk, but you have to admit, he’s absolutely gold on Twitter.

The world’s richest man recently decided to ask his followers whether he should sell billions of Tesla stock. He let them decide, via a Twitter poll.



This came after Musk criticized a Democratic tax proposal that would target American billionaires, and would result in him having a $10 billion tax bill.

Since the poll ended with ‘yes’, Musk has cashed in nearly $7 billion in Tesla stock, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings.



Bernie Sanders then indirected a tweet about the extremely wealthy paying their fair share of tax.

Musk responded with what could be the tweet of the year.

Musk wasn’t finished there. He then hinted he may sell even more shares.



Regardless of the situation, I think “I keep forgetting that you’re still alive” has to be the best put down I’ve heard for a long time.

Now Elon has gone a step further and sold $150 million worth of Tesla stock following the spat.

The world’s richest man filed the paperwork on Monday, November 15, to sell more of his stock after threatening to do so to Sanders.

He’s now sold $6.9 billion in stocks in recent weeks.
