Elon Musk follows 69 accounts on Twitter — here they are

Image

Elon Musk’s Twitter account has gotten a lot of attention lately.

Musk, who is CEO at both Tesla and SpaceX, uses his Twitter account to share ideas, company announcements, and jokes with his 22 million+ followers.

But some of his tweets recently drew the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which sued Musk last week for tweeting “false and misleading statements” about taking Tesla private. Musk settled with the SEC over the weekend, after agreeing to resign as Tesla’s chairman and pay $US20 million from Tesla and $US20 million from his own account as a fine to the SEC.

With so much focus around Musk and his Twitter account, we thought it would be interesting to highlight the handful of accounts that he actually follows – there are 69 of them, to be exact.

We’re not saying that following the same Twitter accounts means you’ll suddenly have the brains or money of Elon Musk, but it certainly can’t hurt.
