Elon Musk takes a swing at the SEC, in a tweet

Wil James Murdoch be the new Chairman of Tesla?

In a tweet, Musk appears to be mocking the USA agency by saying, "Just want to that the Shortseller Enrichment Commission is doing incredible work".

The SEC has responded by denying any plans for a name change, but won't be drawn on the content of the Tweet. Bearing in mind that it was a tweet that got Musk in trouble in the first place, it's perhaps ironic that he has apparently taken aim at the SEC using Twitter.

The SEC declined to comment on Mr Musk's latest tweet. However, Tesla's shares tumbled 2.5% in after-hours trading before showing some signs of improvements.

Here he's suggesting that the agency-whose mission is to protect investors from CEO misconduct-is actually harming the value of Tesla's stock by enforcing securities laws against Musk and Tesla. The deal settled charges that Musk made false and misleading statements about having secured the funding to take Tesla private.

Ratajkowski posted a photo of her during the protest on her Instagram announcing that she has been arrested. The model is holding a sign, reading "Respect female existence or expect our resistance".

On Monday, Elon Musk tweeted a Youtube link to the 1990s hip-hop video entitled O.P.P. captioned with "Naughty by Nature", the group behind the popular rap song.

"Months later, shareholders, creditors, employees and the global economy paid a big price when management's reckless behavior led to bankruptcy", Einhorn said.

Some judges have complained about being viewed as rubber stamps for SEC settlements. The settlement was announced on September 29, two days after Musk was charged. However, the government was annoyed with Musk's decision to bail on the original agreement so they doubled down on the conditions for the new settlement.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan requested more information from the SEC and Tesla related to the settlement so that she can determine whether or not it's "fair and reasonable, with the additional requirement that the public interest not be disserved".

A GoFundMe page has been created by Stabile's family and friends to help bring awareness to the rare but preventable infection. The organizations statistics indicate that since 1962 there have been 143 confirmed cases, of which only four people survived.

Musk doubled down on the tweet shortly after.

Also as part of the settlements, Musk and the company will each pay a $20 million fine to the SEC.

"I think it is juvenile and sophomoric and narcissistic, but I don't think it has particular relevance to the subject of the lawsuit against him", said Harvey Pitt, the SEC chairman under President George W. Bush.

Tesla and the SEC declined requests for comment.

Several news outlets reported that the agency sued after Musk rejected a settlement under which he would have had to step down as chairman for two years, add two independent directors to the company's board, and pay a $10 million fine.
