Elon Musk says Tesla will succeed even if he is ‘kidnapped by aliens’ – noting that he has a great team

With Twitter turmoil hanging on a dark cloud from Elon Musk, shareholders worry that the CEO may step down from his role at Tesla if he is forced to buy the platform, but Musk assured them his talented team can continue to operate even if it is kidnapped by aliens. Or he returned to his home planet.

These hilarious remarks were made during Tesla’s 2022 annual shareholder meeting held Thursday at the company’s new headquarters in Austin, Texas, and were presented during the question-and-answer portion of the presentation.

The question came from Tesla bull and Future Fund managing partner, Gary Black, who asked: “So how does the board think about your succession and especially when you are the judge who will decide in a couple of months whether or not you should take over Twitter. How do you divide your time?

After making sure the crowd would live on Tesla, Musk then said “I’m not leaving to be clear.”

The billionaire went on to explain that Tesla is definitely gathering a lot of momentum, which he was referring to in an earlier announcement during the presentation about the automaker’s recent production of its three million electric car since its inception in 2004.

“I wonder how many cars we’ll have in 10 years,” Musk said as he paused quietly to think.

“10 years ago we had less than 3,000 cars and now we’ve made three million.”

Someone from the audience quickly shouted “300 million,” sparking laughter from Musk who quickly said that “100 million things are actually possible.”

According to the billionaire, this will be done by expanding the four fully operating Gigafactory plants to 12, and Tesla will likely reveal the location of a new plant later this year.

However, Musk still has to face the lawsuit brought by Twitter against him.

The Tesla CEO offered to buy the social media platform for $44 billion, but then retracted the claim that Twitter had failed to provide enough information about the number of fake accounts on the site.

On Wednesday, Twitter denied in a lawsuit that it denied necessary information or misrepresented details about its business.

The fate of this acquisition, which Musk agreed to without taking the time to examine the details of Twitter’s business, now rests with Delaware court as Twitter sued to force Musk to complete the deal. The case is due to go to trial on October 17.

The court’s ruling could ultimately determine the future of a social platform used daily by 238 million people around the world — an audience that is small by the standards of Facebook and other major platforms, but includes political leaders, major artists and experts on a variety of topics. Until January 2021, it was also the home of the then President of the United States, Donald Trump.

In an unexpected development, Twitter was able to provide its response to Musk before Musk’s counterclaims surfaced in public. A judge ruled on Wednesday that Musk’s counterclaim would be made public by Friday.

However, parts of Musk’s counterclaim were included in Twitter’s response. These include accusing the company of fraud and “delay tactics” and Musk providing “sterile and incomplete information” only to answer his questions about spam accounts and other company metrics.

While Twitter has claimed that Musk is inventing reasons to abandon the company’s purchase, Musk’s lawyers say it is Twitter that is blocking the deal by ‘slowing down’ and providing insufficient data for the billionaire’s requests.

In a response filed Thursday at Delaware Chancery Court, Twitter describes Musk’s reasoning as “a story, imagined in an attempt to escape a merger agreement that Musk no longer attracts.”

Musk is also dealing with a lawsuit from Twitter that he touched upon in the meeting.  He told the audience that Twitter fit the grand vision of his holding company.  He said that since he uses Twitter a lot, with over 100 million followers, he knows what to do with it

Twitter’s response reads: “Counter-claims are a litigation-ready tale that goes against evidence and common sense.” Musk invents representations that Twitter never made, and then attempts to selectively use the sweeping confidential data provided to him by Twitter to evoke a breach of those alleged representations.

At the same time, in the response, Musk also accused Twitter of breaching their agreement by “stalling” his requests for information.

Musk’s representatives did not immediately respond with a letter for comment Thursday, though Musk spoke briefly about Twitter at Tesla’s annual shareholder meeting.

He told the audience that Twitter fit the grand vision of his holding company. He said that since he uses Twitter a lot, with over 100 million followers, he knows what to do with it.

“I understand the product very well,” he said. “So I think I have a pretty good idea of ​​where the engineering team should direct Twitter to make it radically better,” he said.
