Musk’s new Twitter name is ‘Elon Tusk’ currently, with an elephant emoji following it.
The unclear Twitter posts are a proof that Musk can put up tweets which can shift the Tesla shares despite of how little information they offer. The stock value of Tesla soared by nearly 6 percent on Wednesday and closed at $314.74, which is the company’s highest jump in the last three weeks, as the fans and followers of Musk speculated on what the news might be about. The guesses made by them ranged from launch of a new Tesla vehicle to a demo of the new driving capabilities of the company.
When asked, Tesla refused to respond back and elaborate further about Musk’s new teasing Twitter post.
Notably, the upcoming news could probably be something related to the Tesla Model Y. Musk has previously spoken about launching Model Y in the month of March this year. So it can be that Tesla might be announcing about the unveiling and giving out more details about the launch of the car.
