Musk’s Twitter

I don’t think it’s an accident that both Peter Thiel and Elon Musk are both responsible for destroying large media empires. They share similar political values, are among the wealthiest people on the planet, and had similar experiences with media companies they could not directly control, and both devised means to solve their problems by leveraging their massive wealth.
