TNW’s Big Spam: I am the Master Algorithm
OK, today we promised you a newsletter takeover from marijuana mogul Socrates Rosenfeld… sorry, it’s actually tomorrow. But you can still ask him a question before his TNW Answers session on Friday (4/20).

IMPORTANT: Kanye West is back on Twitter. Filling us with joy, just when we needed him most.

There are only 36 days left before TNW’s Amsterdam Conference… 36 is the number of UK gallons in a standard beer barrel. Make of that what you will.


Tweet of the day:

His poor tootsies 😞

Love you, mean it!
