I love Twitter. While some people type out carefully curated tweets, most of us write what we want as if no one’s reading. But you know we’re really hoping that someone will read it. Bonus points if it makes us laugh, think or feel. Here’s a couple of my favorites overnight:

I read Twitter every day and I love finding interesting things to read, topical news, stupid memes, and food for thought. And yes, like 66 million other people, I follow Elon Musk. It must be hard, you want to write about your favorite action movies, tunes, and comical memes, yet you’re also a one-person PR machine for your own company, Tesla.

6. Ok, I’m actually a huge fan of Neuralink (I once met a guy who was designing a car that could be operated through a neural chip), and this is pretty mind blowing:

To be clear, I strongly believe in crypto, but it can’t drive a massive increase in fossil fuel use, especially coal

Much is made lately of unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock.
Do you support this?

13. Oh is it a rape whistle? That’ll come in handy when you’re sexually harassed at work…
Don’t waste your money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead!
