Elon Musk Is Getting Playfully Roasted for His 'Funding Secure' Tweet

By Mustafa Gatollari

Elon Musk is always making headlines. Whether it's for selling flamethrowers or dating Grimes, the man's always in the news. He most recently however, started an internet kerfuffle for a brief, nine-word tweet. Tweets can have major implications on a company's business, something that became very clear to those who trade and invest in Tesla stocks.

Elon Musk recently stated that he was considering taking the company private in a terse tweet that briefly ended with him saying that the "funding" has been "secured," should he choose to do so.

And while many people were worried about the implications this would have on the future of the company, especially because all trading on Tesla stock halted after Elon's tweet, most people were more concerned with the last two words of the futuristic mogul's tweet.
