    Tesla is a polarizing company, attracting equal numbers of dedicated followers and staunch critics. This is particularly prominent on Twitter, where Tesla bears and bulls spar on a daily basis about the state and future of the company. As the lineup of Tesla’s supporters and dissenters continue to grow by the day, parody accounts of some known short-sellers have emerged, such as @TesIaCharts (a parody account of known short-seller @TeslaCharts) on Twitter. One of these parody accounts recently took to Twitter to discuss Elon Musk’s vision for humanity, and surprisingly, the thesis presented actually makes sense.

    Tesla is the most shorted stock in the US market. Thus, it is unsurprising to see many outspoken critics online, some of whom admit to holding short positions in the company. A number of these short-sellers have become the center of their own drama over the past month, such as Seeking Alpha author and outspoken bear @MontanaSkeptic1, who opted to leave Twitter after his identity was unveiled and became a focal point for Elon Musk.

    Here’s a 1029433795936579584[/MEDIA]]link to the tweets themselves, but in the event that the account deletes these tweets later, here are some screenshots of the epic thread.

    As constant dissenting voices to Tesla’s initiatives, short sellers have managed to attract the ire of Elon Musk. When Musk posted his first blog post last week about taking the company private, he specifically mentioned entities that are incentivized to attack Tesla - a direct reference to short-sellers.

    “As the most shorted stock in the history of the stock market, being public means that there are large numbers of people who have the incentive to attack the company. I fundamentally believe that we are at our best when everyone is focused on executing, when we can remain focused on our long-term mission, and when there are not perverse incentives for people to try to harm what we’re all trying to achieve,” Musk wrote.

    Elon Musk’s reactions on social media and his open disdain for Tesla’s short-sellers is one of the areas that he can definitely improve on. Musk is never one to back down when faced by an aggressive critic on Twitter, and as the past months have shown, there were multiple times when Musk, unfortunately, left arguments worse for wear.

    Nevertheless, considering the amount of negativity and drama surrounding TSLA, a good degree of Musk’s temperament towards bears and short-sellers is quite understandable. Some Tesla bears, after all, have a tendency to attack Tesla and its supporters without hesitation. Among these is Gordon L. Johnson, an analyst from Vertical Research Group and a noted Tesla bear, who ended up apologizing to his firm’s clients after he issued a note he wrote based on inaccurate information being spread about Tesla.

    Ha ha! Gave me a good laugh. Thanks for sharing this thread. To those who are offended by the jab to their precious capitalism, I\'d like to add that the positive aspects of capitalism, being the owner of your own destiny, is nice. But when profit is #1 above all else, everything else suffers. Such I believe is the case in the world right now. Future successful societies will be a bit of capitalism and lots of socialism. Especially as the whole system of jobs is taken over by robots, leaving us to do what we are most inspired to. Gee that sounds nice.

    Let's call a spade a spade. Capitalism is just a thinly veiled excuse to rape and pillage the earth. If you have half a brain you'd remember that all species extinct are extinct because of capitalism. All air pollution is the byproduct of unfettered capitalism. Musk wants to move humanity to a planet where there is no capitalism! Or at least, a planet that was fully tapped-out by capitalism, a planet where there is NO LONGER any capitalism!

    Srsly Larry, what are you complaining about? If you want to discuss, make a point. Otherwise, you sound like you are just name calling: Repubs are only good at cheating, stealing and destroying, leaving the rest of us to have to clean up after them. They get in office and then it\'s scandal after scandal, the economy is looted, and then the rest of us get back in power and all we have time to do is clean up the mess. Regan/Bush, bailed out by Clinton, then Bush2 starts more wars and destroys the economy and Obama bails him out. Just when the economy is finally back working again along comes Trump to prove that Bush *isn\'t* the worst president ever. Yet the republicans in congress kiss his ass to the bank. Yet they claim to be good religious people, how?See, that\'s name calling. Did you see all the actual points the article made? Perhaps you have a rebuttal to those points and not just a tirade?
