10% SpaceX Layoff:

We now have some color on recent $TSLA insider selling.

We also have some MAJOR color on the events of Dec. 17-21. 2018

12-17:
@WSJ article by @realrobcopeland mis-use of #SpaceX resources (aka embezzlement) by @elonmusk

/1
12-18 ~6:30am: ~15 hrs later

- @WSJ article co-authored by @realrobcopeland on sudden $500mm #SpaceX "funding secured" from "existing shareholders" & @BaillieGifford

- SIMULTANEOUS $TSLA PT reiterations by investment banks holding @elonmusk's pledged $TSLA shares

/2
12-19:
- More heavy selling $TLSA selling following 12-19 selling
- 9:55am: Large trade block of 770,000 shares - $262mm

Was @BaillieGifford suddenly selling to fund a *struggling* #SpaceX at a higher valuation?

Or was another Major holder freeing up some URGENT liquidity?
/3
12-19:
- A twitter user observes the odd behavior and receives a Permanent Suspension within minutes of asking #ElonMusk about selling $TSLA stock

- Twitter hid the "violation" under a user who never reported it and who had no interaction with the suspended account

/4
12-20: a few hours later

- $TSLA suddenly parts ways with its Sr. Dir. of Investor Relations
- #SpaceX AND $TSLA Board Member Antonio Gracias begins selling $TSLA stock (he will wait 6 days to file the Form 4)

/5
12-21: a few hours later

- #SpaceX *partially* fills $273mm (filed 19 days later) of raise

- Someone generated liquidity from $TSLA trading hours earlier
- Who led the #SpaceX raise?
- How much did @elonmusk contribute?
- Was he active in $TSLA trading without reporting it?

/6
Clarification:

**#SpaceX to Layoff *More than* 10% of Workforce**

As with every @elonmusk headline, reality is far worse than stated.
