It is worth noting that Tesla has opened its new car factory in Texas this year. In addition to this, Musk’s space exploration company, SpaceX, has a launch site known as Starbase in Boca Chica, Texas.

According to a Reuters report, Tesla shares have lost one third of their value since the billionaire disclosed his stake in Twitter in early April and sold $8.5 billion worth of Tesla stocks in a move seen to help finance his $44-billion Twitter deal.

About Twitter deal

The Twitter Musk saga began in March this year when an SEC filing revealed that Musk had purchased a 9.2 percent stake in the micro-blogging platform, making him the company’s largest shareholder. Shortly after, he refused a seat on Twitter’s board. Instead, he offered to buy the social media platform for $54.46 per share, which valued the company for whopping $43 billion. If the deal went through, it would be the biggest acquisition of a social media company in the recent time.

More recently, Musk put the deal ‘temporarily on hold’ after he asked Twitter to prove that less than five percent of accounts on its platform were bots. He also claimed that Twitter was manipulating its users.
