Elon Musk has been busy at work after the takeover of Twitter in the past few weeks.

The world’s richest man was quizzed on Monday about his acquisition while running his company, electric car maker Tesla.

The new Twitter owner said he has been working “at the absolute most amount, from morning til [sic] night, seven days a week.”

The call

On Monday, Elon Musk took part in a business conference on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali.

Shedding light on his busy schedule through a video link, Musk said:

“I have too much work on my plate, that is for sure.”

Elon Musk held his video call from a candle-lit room.

Musk was speaking from an area where the power had just gone out.

Additionally, he wore a batik shirt sent by event organizers for the call.

Juggling between Tesla and Twitter

Currently, Elon Musk manages two companies: Tesla and Twitter.

During the meeting, Musk was asked if Tesla operations would be affected by his preoccupation with Twitter, which has become the target for investors and analysts.

Indonesia is trying to secure a deal with electric vehicle maker Tesla for battery investments.

They said they would like to do the same for Musk’s aerospace company, SpaceX, to develop a rocket launch site.

However, Musk made no mention of deals with the country during the meeting.

Instead, he said Indonesia is essential in the electric vehicle supply chain.

Musk also said it makes sense for SpaceX to develop more launch sites around the world in the long term.

For now, the CEO of Twitter, Tesla and SpaceX is working as best he can on all three companies.
