Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk at Tesla Store opening in Westfield Mall, London, Oct 2013

Just days after settling with the Securities Exchange Commission, Tesla CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter and trolled the SEC on Thursday.

“Just want to that (sic) the Shortseller Enrichment Commission is doing incredible work. And the name change is so on point!” Musk tweeted.

The CEO then doubled down in a response to Silicon Valley socialite Robert Scobe by apologizing for the typo in the first tweet, after Scoble suggested it should have said committee, not commission.

On Saturday Musk settled with the SEC resulting in a $40 million fine—half to be paid by Tesla and half to be paid by Musk—and Musk is to step down as chairman of the board for at least three years.

The agreement also called for two new independent directors to join Tesla’s board.

Also on Thursday reported that U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan in Manhattan gave Musk and the SEC until October 11 to justify why the settlement is fair and reasonable.

The U.S. Department of Justice might be investigating Musk separately, but officials haven’t confirmed the investigation.

Clearly the situation has not put restrictions on Musk’s personal tweeting habits.
