Elon Musk takes control of Twitter, fires top executives

It’s official, Elon Musk has taken control of Twitter, as the $44bn deal is finalised.

Twitter’s CEO and CFO were immediately fired and “escorted out” of the building when Musk took the reigns.

In a sensational post to Twitter, Billionaire Elon Musk claimed he was acquiring the social network for the good of humanity.

Musk also used the post to reassure advertisers that Twitter will remain a safe place for their brands.

“Fundamentally, Twitter aspires to be the most respected advertising platform in the world that strengthens your brand and grows your enterprise,” he said. “Advertising, when done right, can delight, entertain and inform you.”

He said the reason he acquired Twitter is “because it is important to the future of civilisation to have a common digital town square. Where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence. “There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right wing and far left wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.”

Adding, “That is why I bought Twitter. I didn’t do it because it would be easy. I did it to try to help humanity, whom I love.”

Musk said Twitter should be a platform that is “warm and welcoming to all, where you can choose your desired experience according to your preferences.”

Who killed the crypto boom?

It has been a shocking year for crypto investors, the year that crypto came crashing down to earth.

What began as a trickle became a turning point for crypto, losing their luster and exposed as a fringe product that most sensitive, experienced investors approached with skepticism.

So how did crypto climb so high under the cover of the pandemic?

By 2022, the ads were everywhere. Crypto was taking over the superbowl, and global sport.

Hollywood’s biggest names were jumping on board, and suddenly the big banking firms were taking notice.

The tokens might have been virtual, but crypto was become a real threat, and of real interest to next gen investors. #crypto #ftx #bitcoin

Musk’s Tesla is currently floating through the galaxy

Exactly five years ago,Elon Musk’s Tesla roadster was launched into space to travel on an endless joy ride through the cosmic wilderness.

And how’s this for a journey.

On its anniversary, estimates suggest the vehicle has completed three and one quarter loops around the sun and is sitting 326 kilometres from Earth.

It’s also logged up more than 4 billion kilometres, mostly travelling through a barren vacuum.

In space terms, it did get close to Mars at one point – passing within 8 million ks of the planet – or about 20 times the distance between the Earth and the moon.

Although, it’s difficult to say where the vehicle is exactly with or whether it’s still even in one piece.

It is possible the roadster may have been hit by a meteoroid or eroded by radiation. #trending #fetured
