巴菲特:发推特对马斯克并没什么好处

Jonathan Vanian 2018年09月03日

巴菲特认为,如果公司CEO在热门社交平台上公开谈论交易意向,确实有可能引发法律问题。

沃伦·巴菲特在采访中聊了聊埃隆·马斯克爱发推特的习惯,马斯克最近几个月的推特着实引发了不少争议。

“我觉得发推对他没什么好处”,巴菲特上周四接受美国全国广播公司财经频道(CNBC)采访时说,说到这他还轻轻笑了起来。主持人谈到特斯拉CEO马斯克的推特语录时,“奥马哈先知”巴菲特被逗乐了,马斯克最近发了不少有争议的推文,还在8月7日的推文中说想把他的电动汽车公司特斯拉私有化,并且因此招来了大量审查。

虽然马斯克及时刹车,上周说特斯拉仍将维持上市公司的状态,但据报道他的推特导致证券交易委员会开展了相关调查,还被股东起诉他发布虚假消息抬高股价。

巴菲特承认,因为所有人都能对社交媒体上的信息进行阅读凭评论,如果公司CEO在这种热门平台上公开谈论交易意向,确实有可能引发法律问题。

关于他是否会对伯克希尔哈撒韦公司的相关情况发表推特,巴菲特说,“要是我开始对伯克希尔的公司事务发表日常评论,就会存在很大风险,所以我绝不会这么做”。

关于是否会发表一般性的推特,巴菲特说他“想不到有什么理由”要发推,而且他会发布年报,从中可以看到他的商业观点。

“我不会每天对各种各样的事情发表看法”,他说。“我觉得比起发推特,生活中还有其它更吸引我的事情。”

巴菲特还承认自己知道有一个假的沃伦·巴菲特推特账号,最近假巴菲特还因为发一些诸如“要保持健康活力”、“常和朋友联系”之类的心灵鸡汤而赢得了一些称赞。

“如果我发推特,内容可能还不如这个山寨账号”,巴菲特显然觉得这件事情很有意思。“要是他的推文确实能提出不错的建议,我就要把他的功劳据为己有啦。”(财富中文网)

Warren Buffett has chimed in on Elon Musk’s voracious Twitter habits that have sparked much controversy in recent months.

“I don’t think it’s helped him a lot,” Buffett said while gently laughing in an interview with CNBC in an interview on Thursday. The Oracle of Omaha was amused when the interviewer brought up Musk’s Twitter musings because the Tesla (tsla, -0.99%) CEO attracted much scrutiny over an Aug. 7 tweet that suggested he wanted to take his electric car company private, among other controversial tweets.

Although Musk reversed course and said last week that Tesla will remain a public company, his comments reportedly led to a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation and shareholder lawsuits that alleged he made false claims to raise the price of his company’s stock.

Buffett acknowledged the potential legal issues that could occur if CEOs were to discuss proposed financial deals on a popular social messaging service open to anyone in the public to read and comment on.

“It would be particularly dangerous to start commenting about Berkshire daily, which I never would do,” Buffett said regarding tweeting about his conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway.

Regarding tweeting in general, Buffet said he doesn’t “see a reason to” and that he puts out an annual report instead that contains his thoughts on business.

“I do not have a daily view on all kinds of things,” he said. “I just think there’s other things in life I want to do than tweet.”

Buffet also acknowledged that he’s familiar with a fake Warren Buffett Twitter account that earned minor acclaim in recent days for posting trite business and life-skill tips like “stay healthy and fit” and “keep in touch with friends.”

“This copycat imitator, he’s putting out better stuff than I would,” Buffet said clearly amused. “If he puts out enough good advice I’ll take credit for it.”
