The story of Tesla and Elon Musk is truly quite a story, with numerous twists and turns. There are so many twists and turns, and such a unique community of folks has developed that have followed it with an intense microscope on Twitter, that a Podcast covering $TSLAQ Twitter has developed.

This thread from El Gato Malo from October 2018 is probably the best description of what $TSLAQ Twitter is/does.

Following the saga fairly intensely since the summer of 2018 has been a fascinating experience, unlikely to be paralleled with following any particular stock/company for probably at least the next decade.

The quality of research and collaboration conducted by members of the $TSLAQ community and shared freely on the "battleground" that is Twitter (per the words of Elon Musk, Twitter is a battleground) has been excellent and of comparable quality to the research conducted here on the NPI board.

This Q1 2019 Model X and S demand decline is going to have a big negative impact on Tesla's profitability. After the $920M bond payment they made on March 1st, it appears that they could really really use a capital raise before June, but this continuation of the SEC matter with the court hearing today probably makes that not feasible for another 2 weeks unless some settlement can be reached.
