Elon Musk says he asked Bill Gates by means of instant message in the event that he had shorted Tesla stock 

after the Microsoft prime supporter moved toward him about magnanimity.

Whenever asked on Twitter if a screen capture of instant messages,

purportedly between the two tycoons, was genuine, the Tesla CEO answered

"definitely," adding "however I didn't spill it to the NYT."

A representative for Bill Gates was not quickly accessible for input about the trade.

Musk has recently said he thinks Gates has a short situation on Tesla 

 and has referred to discussions with him as "disappointing."
