Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, responding to Uber Technologies Inc. board member Arianna Huffington urging him to change the way he works, ruled out taking a different approach. I just got home from the factory.

In a tweet early Sunday after arriving home from a late night at a Tesla factory, Musk tells the Huffington Post founder that his electric vehicle company and Ford are the only two American automakers that have avoided bankruptcy. You think this is an option.

In an interview with The New York Times last week, Musk said he sacrificed family milestones in the race to meet Tesla production targets. "It is not." Musk tweeted at 2:32 a.m. on Sunday. "This past year has been the most hard and painful year of my career", he told the newspaper.

The volatile exec stunned Wall Street on August 7 when in a tweet not reviewed or expected by the Tesla board announced plans to take the company private at $420 a share and that he'd secured funding for the initiative as well. The company later received a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange Commission over the tweet. Her description accompanying the open letter describes her as a "flat shoe advocate and sleep evangelist".
