Before this deal, Musk asked his legions of Twitter followers to vote whether he should sell the 10% chunk of his holdings in an electric car and solar business with a poll and wrote “Much is made lately of unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock. Do you support this?” An option was given to the followers where they had to decide “Yes” or “No” vote and said he would bend his directions by the results of his followers. Where 3.5 million responded, with 57.9% of votes responding to “Yes.”

Ron Wyden, D-Ore, Senate Finance Committee Chairman wrote in a tweet, “Whether or not the world’s wealthiest man pays any taxes at all shouldn’t depend on the results of a Twitter poll,”
