    Elon Musk continues to be a hot mess whose billions of dollars give him the power to inflict his hot messiness on the world. On Friday, just days after saying he would reverse Donald Trump’s Twitter ban, he tweeted that his deal to buy the company is “temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users.” Two hours later, he followed up to say that he was “still committed” to buying the social media platform. Sure he is. Musk’s initial tweet cause an 18% drop in Twitter stock, which recovered slightly after his second tweet. That’s on top of a drop in Twitter share prices that left the company worth $9 billion less than Musk had agreed to pay for it.

    Elon Musk's $44 billion deal to buy Twitter is "on hold" for the moment, the billionaire business tycoon said on Friday. "Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users," Musk tweeted. The price of shares in the social media company dipped double digits in premarket trading after the Tesla and SpaceX CEO's tweet. In his tweet announcing the snag in the deal, Musk shared an news article from earlier this month about a Twitter disclosure where the company estimated that fake or spam accounts represent fewer than 5% of its 229 million monetizable daily active users in the first quarter. Last month, Twitter agreed to sell the company to Musk for $44 billion in cash. Musk plans to take the social media company private and focus on making the platform more friendly toward free speech.

    Share this: A trial court ruling that declared New York’s new congressional and legislative district maps unconstitutional was temporarily stayed Monday as lawyers prepared to argue before an appeals court.

    They say all publicity is good publicity. But maybe not when it involves public officials dining in groups at your restaurant after pleading with others to refrain from that sort of gathering during a pandemic. Yelp has posted an “Unusual Activity Alert” on the French Laundry’s review page and temporarily halted the posting of comments about the restaurant. The action comes after the San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday that San Francisco Mayor London Breed joined seven others at the restaurant for a birthday party Nov. 7. That’s a day after Gov. Gavin Newsom’s controversial dinner there with people from outside his household. Representatives for both Newsom and Breed have noted that Napa County, where the French Laundry is located, was open for both indoor and outdoor dining at that time. Yelp routinely monitors accounts for suspicious and malicious activity. The website didn’t specify the types of comments on the French Laundry page that warranted the action, posting only its policy on such matters: “This business recently received increased public attention, which often means people come to this page to post...
