Tesla’s Musk, Greenlight’s Einhorn taunt each other on Twitter

Elon Musk fires back at Tesla detractor: 'Allow us to send you a small gift of short shorts'

Musk, who has a history of being playful on Twitter, began an exchange by posting an open letter https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1192704412885536768 on Twitter addressing Einhorn as "Dear Mr. Unicorn (fabulous name btw)".

Einhorn politely observes that Greenlight has generated real profit for investors since 1996, while Tesla has racked up over $6B in losses despite taxpayer subsidies.

"We are much more interested in, and have many questions about, your financial statements".

Musk finished his letter by inviting Einhorn, the head of Greenlight Capital, to tour the facilities, because: 'I'm certain your investors would appreciate you getting smart on Tesla'.

When Einhorn set out Greenlight's quarterly report, he stated that Tesla's effects has experienced a negative impact on Greenlight's returns, but he also took his individual shots at Musk, saying the Tesla boss "knowingly orchestrated a sizeable fraud" about Tesla's acquisition of photo voltaic-panel technological innovation corporation SolarCity.

Einhorn acknowledged his hedge fund and Tesla had "some similarities and a few variations".

The clip on which the Tesla CEO was discussing the future of mankind while smoking marijuana and drinking whiskey on the rocks on a podcast the Joe Rogan Experience went viral a year ago and nearly immediately became a meme hit.


In his tweet, Musk addressed Einhorn as "Unicorn" and signed off as "Treelon", a reference to his tree-planting donation. Einhorn shared along with two pictures of the short on Twitter. "They did come with some manufacturing defects".

"I think facility visits would be fun (can we start in Buffalo?)", Einhorn tweeted Friday in response to Musk.

Greenlight Capital first rose to prominence for making a prescient call on Lehman Brothers' accounting troubles earlier than the agency's crumple. "I could perhaps be taught the variation between your alien dreadnought factory and cars made by hand in a tent".

Shares of Tesla are up about 1% year-to-date. The carmaker, however, put some concerns to rest after delivering a surprise profit in its third quarter.

The power duo have butted heads for years, with Einhorn many times calling for Musk's ouster atop Tesla.

Tesla CEO has mentioned that the forthcoming pickup truck has a "heart-stopping" design, with better utility than a Ford F-150 and superior performance to a basic Porsche 911, The Verge reported on Wednesday.
