WASHINGTON — Securities regulators told Tesla Inc. last year that Chief Executive Elon Musk’s use of Twitter had twice violated a court-ordered policy requiring his tweets to be preapproved by company lawyers, according to records obtained by The Wall Street Journal.


and the Securities and Exchange Commission settled an enforcement action in 2018 alleging that Musk had committed fraud by tweeting about a potential buyout of his company. Musk paid $20 million to settle that case — Tesla also paid $20 million — and agreed to have his public statements on social media overseen by Tesla lawyers.
