Broke niggas tweeting right now
Will his money help him in prison?
"Hahaaa top that kylie"-Elon
what a guy
$TSLA stock price went up. At current standings it has a trade price of +$10 per share, compared to before the event. There are 170.59M outstanding shares, each share is now worth around 10 USD more. This indicates a market cap increase of about $1.7B. Elon Musk owns 22% of Teslas shares, that's about 37M shares. The tweet effectively made Elon Musk about $370,000,000 "wealthier", compared to before the spike. You're welcome.
We all understand that he never actually was $1.4 billion richer right? The stock he owned went up $1.4 billion for a day and came right back down today. If he sold that stock yesterday, he would be $1.4 billion richer. But he didn't, and the stock price dropped today. So he didn't make anything. We all understand how this works right? And to Troy Prince, there are more than 6 billion people on the planet. So that $1.4 billion split between everyone on earth means… $0.15 per person. Math skills kids.
FAKE-X… SPACE IS FAKE… THE Earth is flat covered by a firmament dome.
