  • Tesla CEO Elon Musk was recently asked how he spends
    his time at Tesla.
  • Musk explained that he spends most of his time in
    meetings around the factory, and though “people think I spend a
    lot of time on Twitter … but actually it’s like, that’s like
    almost nothing.”

Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently sat down for an interview with
YouTuber Marques
Brownlee, a.k.a. “MKBHD.”

Brownlee’s first question was pretty straightforward: “How do you
spend time at Tesla? What do you do?”

Here was Musk’s response:

I think probably a lot of people don’t realize I’m basically in
the factory, in design or engineering meetings or in production —
that’s like 80-90% of the time.

I think sometimes people think I spend a lot of time on Twitter.
I don’t know what gave — why they would think that, that’s crazy.
But actually it’s like, that’s like almost nothing.

But most of my time is spent — at least the last several months
especially — going around the factory and then working on say,
the paint shop, the body shop where we weld up the body, the
final assembly where we put all the parts together, and if I’m
not here I’m at the Gigafactory in Nevada.

Well, there you have it. Musk says he spends about 80% to 90% of
his time in various meetings within the factory, checking in on
production throughout the assembly process. Oh, and
the amount of time

he spends

on Twitter
is “like, almost nothing.”
