Nathan stated court-supervised arrangements must be obeyed.

In a subsequent tweet, Musk said these changes will start on May 1.

A former tweet regarding a strategy to take the business private led with the SEC to the first round of problems.

After that, and as part of a settlement agreement between them, Musk personally paid a $20 million fine. The SEC alleges that Musk blatantly violated the settlement with a February 19 tweet about Tesla vehicle production that wasn't approved by the company's "disclosure counsel".
