Any half hour waking up to Elon Musk’s life is like an episode of The Office these days

A few weeks ago, Elon Musk took control of Twitter, and since then half the world has been watching what the world’s richest man does with the company he bought for $44 billion. You can’t say he’s bored: he fired half of the programmers, announced that there might be bankruptcy here, changed the system of verified users many times, talked to a lot of famous people, encouraged his vote for American Republicans, and kept saying that Canaan is free speech. It’s worked so much that Twitter’s traffic is growing, but not to the extent that advertisers are turning away from the platform.

But the really interesting and useful thing is how Musk handles the little things. Of course, the little things he spends his time on, as an owner and CEO, who is also a corporate director at Tesla and SpaceX, means his time is literally very expensive. In light of this, let’s take a look at the latest little story from yesterday.
