Did Elon Musk ever really want to buy Twitter, or was it all a an excuse to cash out Tesla stock without causing a panic

Any sufficiently advanced con is indistinguishable from market manipulation.

he's diversifying because he knows EV's are just a novelty and that Tesla stock will eventually crash

EV's will only last until the government subsidies, incentives, tax credits, etc. run out (or until people finally realize that the power grid can't support any sizeable quantity of them)

@wildbill83 Of course no one stops to wonder why they never caught on like gas powered vehicles.
So you pretty much live in a modern world where technology thrives, like it has for all of Human life, and brilliant people do brilliant things. You believe in your religion more than you believe in reality. Either that, or you could be an extraordinarily ignorant dip shit.

Keep in mind, the two are very much not mutually exclusive of each other

He has more money than what 10,000 people would know what to do with in a lifetime.
He probably just got bored and thought, "Oh why not, I can afford it" with the same indifference that any one of us might eat fast food "just because".

He sold $8.5 billion in Tesla shares around the time he announced. He'll buy them back when they go down again.
