Elon Musk sent stocks of his electric car company on a freefall on Friday after tweeting that the share price may be too high as the billionaire Tesla CEO posted a bizarre series of tweets.

‘Tesla stock price is too high imo,’ Musk tweeted at around 11:11am Eastern Time on Friday.

Right after he posted this tweet, Tesla shares began a precipitous nosedive on Wall Street.

Sure enough, Tesla shares dipped on Friday, falling more than 11 per cent and trading at around $693 as of the afternoon.

Fans of the Tesla CEO are worried and confused on Friday after he posted a series of incoherent tweets that included misquoted lyrics of The Star Spangled Banner as well as a strange pledge to sell his possessions.

Musk also tweeted: ‘Now give people back their FREEDOM.’
