Hi there Subscriber!
(This newsletter was supposed to go live on Monday morning. But Revue decided to disable my account for no reason. It’s finally re-enabled so I am sharing the draft as was to go live)
It’s the second week of the second last month of the year. A year is such a short period of time. (Take this as an encouragement to pursue whatever you want to now.)
While most of us will agree we’ve seen a lot of negative impacts of social media on the world, we can also agree that there are positive things that have arisen thanks to social media. How do you use social media? Are you a scrolling addict? How do you limit usage? What apps do you use most? And would you say you’re more or less productive thanks to social media?
This week, we may see something huge happen thanks to a Twitter Poll. LOL, yes it is Elon Musk again. This time he ran a Twitter poll to ask his 62.8M followers if he should sell a 10% stake at Tesla. And of course, the majority said yes. Out of over 3.5 million votes cast, 57.9% said yes. We are waiting to see if he abides with the outcome.
The reason for this? To pay more taxes!
