Hello and happy Saturday to you all. Today's issue of TimeMachiner brings a few good reads and a bit of a breakdown into the big news: Elon Musk's Twitter obsession. I try to give my point of view on it, but also some context as to why it may not be the best idea for him to own the company. Either way, I think you'll find my take interesting.

Thanks and I'll see you on Tuesday.
