Some board members are reportedly “angered” over Musk’s recent chaotic exploits on Twitter in particular, from the seemingly spontaneous announcement of a plan to take Tesla private to the ugly public spats with analysts and cave divers. The board is also said to be concerned with Musk’s spiraling workload and use of Ambien, and is seeking to “help take some of the pressure off” him with the new hire. Musk says he has no plans to stop using Twitter, nor does he regret his most contentious tweet of the month. Musk’s other major company, SpaceX, was also apparently considered as a way to fund the privatization. The SEC started questioning Tesla the day after the market-shaking tweet, and has reportedly served the board and Musk with subpoenas as the investigation gathers pace.
