    The Tesla CEO has had a rough year. However, it is not Twitter that is the culprit behind the fall of Musk’s wealth. It is the shares of Tesla Inc., which have now dropped to the lowest level in two years that has caused Musk’s loss. The SpaceX CEO currently has a fortune of $169.8 billion. As a whole, this year, Musk’s wealth has gone down by $100.5 billion.

    One reason for the fall in Elon Musk’s wealth is the struggle faced by Tesla in its sales. Due to the Covid-related restrictions in China, these electric car makers are not able to make gains from its largest market outside the USA. The company also had to recall more than 300,000 cars due to faulty taillights. The 51-year-old entrepreneur is preoccupied with Twitter at the moment. Maybe more of his attention on Tesla would turn his losses into gains.

Google co-founder and board member Sergey Brin lost $38.1 billion this year. The biggest net loss of the year is for the Facebook founder and Meta CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
