Elon Musk gets in trouble with the securities watchdog once again

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is reportedly investigating Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s tweets about joke cryptocurrency Dogecoin, according to sources familiar with the matter

As reported by U.Today, Musk’s frequent tweets about the meme coins have had a great impact on its price action.  

This is not the first time that the Twitter account of the “former Dogecoin CEO’ has gotten him in trouble with the SEC. In the past, the agency charged the billionaire with securities fraud over his controversial “funding secured” tweet about taking Tesla private before settling with him in April 2019. In a “60 Minutes” interview, Musk explicitly stated that he didn’t respect the SEC.
