How does selling $4B in Tesla shares affect Elon Musk?

Elon Musk sold 19.5 million shares of the electric vehicle company valued at $3.95 billion on Tuesday, according to the securities filing.

Musk had approximately $20 billion after selling part of his stake in Tesla.

Musk would have needed to raise an additional $2 billion to $3 billion to pay the Twitter price tag based on the Reuters article.

Musk had previously stated that he would provide no more Tesla stock after closing a sale of shares at the beginning of April and the beginning of August.

Musk's net worth dropped by $70 billion after he made an offer for Twitter in April.

Tesla's stock has declined significantly due to Musk's activity on Twitter.

Musk unloaded loosely around $36 billion last year, consisting of nearly half since he went public about his Twitter buyout plan.
