"It's destroying the medium".
Tesla lawyers can breathe a sigh of relief: CEO Elon Musk said he is deleting his Twitter account.
Eventually, seemingly fed up with the negative reaction, Musk deleted the tweets in question and then changed his profile picture to a black circle.
Is Musk actually quitting Twitter? Rather than apologise, add a credit in a reply or repost the art with a credit attached, he followed up with "always credit everyone", "no one should be credited with anything ever" and the doozy below, then deleted all of them, including the original image tweet.
Eberhard, who is now the chairman of an electric vehicle battery startup called Tiveni, co-founded Tesla in 2003, but was sacked from the startup in 2007 in an ouster led by Musk.
Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment through Tesla. This caused a number of people to call Musk out for not crediting Magali, as a share by someone with Musk's massive following (he has over 27 million Twitter followers at the time of this writing) could have literally made that Magali's career. "No one should be credited with anything", Musk said.
An offer never materialised, and the Securities and Exchange Commission later accused Mr Musk of using Twitter to mislead investors.
