Elon Musk's transformation from real-life Tony Stark to bizarre Twitter ranter has been one of the strangest spectacles of 2018.

Not only has he been forced to resign as the chairman of Tesla because of a joke tweet he posted about taking the company private but his tweets are now costing other people a lot of money.

On Thursday, Musk tweeted about the Shortseller Enrichment Commission, a US regulator that reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with Musk over alleged security fraud.

This tweet triggered a flurry of responses from actual Tesla investors who were basically telling Musk to 'shut up' and stop tweeting because they were losing a lot of money.

In response, other Twitter users began to question their financial strategies.

These pleas haven't stopped Musk from tweeting, nor has he chosen to reply to many of those individuals.

However, he did respond to one person who accused him of "working against us" to which he responded with something that resembled positivity.
