"The only tweets that would have to be reviewed would be if a tweet had a probability of causing a movement in the stock", he said. And I didn't really want to try to adhere to some CEO template.

Mr Musk said he and Tesla had chosen to pay the $20m (£15m) settlement fine because while he did not respect the regulator, he did believe in the justice system. But he said he was adhering to the agreement because he respects the USA justice system.

'I want to be clear. Stahl rebutted, questioning just how Musk could be awarded judgment to decide which of his Tesla-related tweets are actually monitored.

I mean that's not realistic because I am the largest shareholder in the company and a very high percentage of the shareholders support me and the company.

Later in the interview, Musk continued to slam the SEC's decision to strip him of his Board Chairman title. The company resorted to building a second assembly line inside a tent-like structure next to its main assembly plant in Fremont, California. "Those betting against the company were right by all conventional standards that we would fail". Then, in no uncertain terms, Musk says exactly what he thinks of the government agency responsible for enforcing the federal securities laws.

"The whole point of Tesla is to accelerate the advent of electric vehicles ..." Since then, however, Tesla has only made higher-priced versions of the vehicle. Well, because Elon admits that "punctuality is not my strong suit".

"Nobody's flawless", the Tesla chief said, while laughing. The tweet sent Tesla's stock soaring. It wouldn't be the first time Tesla bought a GM plant.

This weekend CBS News aired a wide-ranging interview with Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk during which he reflected on his companies, his erratic behavior, his pot smoking, and even the SEC. Musk made it clear that, despite a settlement that requires "mandatory procedures... regarding oversight of communications relating to the Company made in any format, including but not limited to, posts on social media (e.g Twitter)", no one is looking over his shoulder or telling him not to tweet.

Musk, 47, told anchor Lesley Stahl that none of his tweets have been censored since he reached a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in October. He said he uses Twitter to express himself.
