Tesla Daily-Apr.7 Tesla News
Lately Elon Musk shocked followers and media on Twitter with his announcement that Tesla will switch the batteries to hydrogen in 2024. He also mentioned the first vehicle to arrive using the fuel will fittingly be called the Model H. Before that, Musk called hydrogen fuel cells as “fool cells”, it’s said that the rapid turn for his thought is due to terminal problems encountered in the mass production of the 4680 batteries. The Model H will have ground-breaking features, with the headline capability being “Hindenburg Mode” derived from SpaceX technology, which will reportedly allow the Model H to hit 60mph in just 1.2 seconds. It’s worth noting that Elon posted this news on April Fool’s Day, later on he deleted this post. Do you believe this will happen in the future?
Elon Musk recently purchased 9.2% of Twitter stock, making him the largest shareholder in the company. Twitter's stock price rose by 25% in pre market trading after the news broke. In the eyes of Wall Street, it could signal an effort by Musk to take a more active role in how Twitter is run. That is one of the factors prompting other investors to buy shares and drive up the price. Musk has also raised the possibility with his massive and loyal Twitter following, that he could create a rival social media network. His surprise investment, which comes days after questioning the company’s commitment to free speech and suggesting he might start his own social platform, sent Twitter stock soaring. While it was not immediately clear what role Musk plans to play, analysts speculated he may try for an activist restructuring that could change the way Twitter policies its platform as well as who it banishes.
