Billionaire Elon Musk said on Monday that he was working “as hard as he could… from morning to night, seven days a week” when asked about his recent acquisition of Twitter and his leadership of the maker of Tesla cars.
“I have too much work on my plate, that’s for sure,” Musk said by video link at a business conference on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali.
Musk, who is the chief executive of both companies, appeared lit by candles, wearing a batik shirt sent by organizers and said he was speaking from a place that had just lost power.
The question of whether Tesla ( TSLA ) will suffer because Musk is worried about Twitter has become a focus for investors and analysts.
Indonesia has been trying to secure a deal with Tesla over investment in batteries and potentially for Elon Musk’s SpaceX aerospace company to develop a rocket launch site.
Musk wouldn’t commit to any of them, but said Indonesia had an important role to play in the electric vehicle supply chain and that it would make “long-term” sense for SpaceX to have multiple launch points around the world .
