What on Earth Is Happening With Twitter?

"What on earth is happening with Twitter? I'm seeing all these conflicting remarks. Elon actually going to buy Twitter. Well, let's first go to some of the kind of legislative debates on this on Capitol Hill, senator Josh hawley, one of my favorite senators ripping Twitter to shreds, play cut 68. Which is that Twitter has been all too eager to take private information from its users without telling them to sell it and monetize it without their permission. To expose them to the worst kind of security threats to censor them to spy on them. I mean, you have painted a picture of a company that is not only out of control, but it's truly in many ways a malign actor. Continues here, former Twitter security chief says the platform's leadership is misleading the public, lawmakers, and regulators. Play cut 53. Twitter leadership is misleading the public lawmakers regulators and even its own board of directors. What I discovered when I joined Twitter was that this enormously influential company was over a decade behind industry security standards. The company's cybersecurity failures make it vulnerable to exploitation. Causing real harm to real people. Oh, Jack Dorsey, lying under oath, how interesting. I wonder if he'll be prosecuted. Not only that Twitter has become a glorified Democrat super PAC, doing the censoring the scrubbing and the silencing on behalf of the entire Democrat regime. Elon might be forced to buy it, but at a lower price that lawsuit is ongoing, but Twitter is nowhere near as valuable as it once was. And thanks to the persistent pressure we've applied Twitter is collapsing. That's a good thing.

Dinesh Reveals Why Elon Musk Is Giving the Left Panic Attacks

"I want to talk about Elon Musk and Twitter and I speak about this with someone who has an almost vested stake in this because quite honestly, the great traction behind our movie is in part being driven by Twitter. I don't mean the Twitter I was pushing, and I mean the fact that there's free speech or something closely approximating free speech, this is how we can talk openly about topics and quite honestly we can't talk about the same topics on a number of the other platforms. And but you'd be like YouTube. And Facebook. Yeah, I mean, those platforms have become a joke. I mean, we're still on them, at least for now, Debbie's like, who knows how long we're going to be on those platforms. We don't know and quite honestly, at the end of the day, we don't care. But let's come back to Elon Musk because his vision for Twitter. And he's going to be in the saddle very shortly. It's really important. I find it kind of funny, by the way, that he's been kind of whipping Jack Dorsey into shape because Jack Dorsey was kind of like the big tough guy that John Travolta character and calling the marching orders. And now Jack Dorsey appears to be like Elon Musk's sidekick. He's like tonto and Elon Musk is like the lone ranger. And so Jack Dorsey now says things like, no, no, no. We can't permanently bound anyone from Twitter. Wasn't I'm the Jack Dorsey that Trump got permanently banned. So now that Elon Musk goes no prominent bands, Jack Dorsey is no point in bands. It's kind of fun to watch. I mean, it's like watching a bully who's been reduced to groveling because another bigger guy has

"Elon Musk confirming yesterday that if and when he gets control of Twitter, he's going to welcome Trump back to Twitter. Oh, look at this. Jack Dorsey, now a supports Trump returning to Twitter. The ACLU supports reinstating Donald Trump. Where were all those folks for the last two years, senator? All I can say is, you know, I've been threatening and threatening to quit Twitter and I quit YouTube because they censor me, but I haven't quit Twitter. But if Elon Musk takes over, it gets rid of the sensors, I love his irreverent sarcasm and he's actually just playing funny a lot of the times. And actually, I don't even know his politics. I think he may have a libertarian street tumor, I don't think he's either conservative or liberal. I think he's probably a mixture of a lot of different beliefs that the younger generation believes him. But it might not always agree with, but my goodness, do I agree with freedom of speech without question? I think he's going to make it a fun place again. But you know what? I doubt Trump will come back, you know, he's in a direct competitor now. He's got a bunch of money invested in this true social. So I would be very surprised if he came back to Twitter.

Elon Musk Says He Would Lift Twitter Ban on Donald Trump

"Elon Musk yesterday said that once he gains control of Twitter, Trump will be welcomed back on Twitter. Trump is 58 and one in Republican primary contests. What do you think he'd be doing if he was back on Twitter? I don't even know if he wants to go back to Twitter. He says he doesn't. He's trying to boost truth social and he says that's where he will be, but listen to what Elon Musk, who now is about to own Twitter, told a reporter who asked the inevitable question about the 45th president of the United States. Are you planning to let Donald Trump back on? I think there's a general question of should was it Twitter have permanent bans? And I've talked with Jack Dorsey about this and he and I are of the same mind, which is that permanent advance should be extremely rare and really reserved for people where they're trying to for accounts that are once or spam scam accounts. Where there's just no legitimacy to the account at all. I do think that it was not correct. To ban Donald Trump, I think that was a mistake. Because an alienated a large part of the country and did not ultimately result in Donald Trump not having a voice. He is now going to be on truth social as will a large part of the right in the United States. This guy sounds very analytical and of course very smart.

Jenna Ellis: 'It's a Great Day for Free Speech'

"Yesterday, Elon Musk bought Twitter. That sounds like a joke. It's like a Babylon bee headline. Elon Musk zillionaire bought Twitter for 67 gazillion dollars. Do you have any thoughts on that today the day after this happened? Because I find myself feeling generally like, hey, that's a great thing. But there's a I just have a lot of questions about it. I just wondered if you had any ideas about it. Oh, it's a great day for free speech, and it is absolutely a great thing. And I think ironically, you mentioned Babylon B and that seemed to be the catalyst when the Babylon be the satire site was suspended on Twitter. Elon Musk, of course, had done that interview with about one B loves all of their work and started talking to Seth Dillon, who's the CEO. And actually had a conversation with him saying, should I offer to buy Twitter? I mean, this is ridiculous. And so what the left is melting down over in people who are so concerned that somehow billionaire Elon Musk is owning Twitter when they didn't really care that Jack Dorsey was running Twitter, then what they're concerned about is that Elon Musk has openly said that he is a free speech absolutist and that he hopes that people who disagree with him will stay on the platform because that's what free speech means. So I think this is a watershed moment in American history because we have not only the government that's forbidden by the constitution to infringe on constitutionally protected speech and free speech. But we've seen that the tech oligarchs have gotten around that and private companies have censored public forums and with Elon Musk saying I'm going to buy one of the top 5 platforms V top platform for political speech. This is going to revolutionize what we can actually discuss and debate

A New Respect for the Original Founder of Twitter

"This is really something this next story I appreciate this, you know? I had kind of written Jack Dorsey off, but lately he's become a little bit more entertaining and perhaps a little bit more authentic. There are some pretty strong words, tweets, thoughts, from Jack Dorsey out this week. He was alleging an exchange on social media on none other than Twitter. The company he founded that he's on the board of and is about to step down from, that CNN created conflict during protests in Ferguson, Missouri. Remember that way back in, I guess it was 2014. So this was a thread about CNN and fake news, endorsing said, and I quote here, I know this from being on the streets of Ferguson during the protests and watching them try to create conflict and film it, causing the protesters to chant F CNN. It all started because CNN's media reporter, Brian stelter over there said, and I quote Tucker Carlson is always selling the same thing. This was a reference to a piece that he tweeted out about how Fox was trying to effectively sell doubt. And Dorsey wrote back and said, and you are all selling hope? In other words, I think he gets it? These mainstream media companies are all trying to sell something. And by the way, is not hope. I mean, he's being sarcastic there because you know, CNN is on one side of things. You get Fox on the other, but they're all, this is why I love, by the way, independent media. Again, make sure that you subscribe to this channel and to this podcast. But you know, they're all kind of, they've got bigger agendas. Anyway, newsmax is correspondent Alex salvi took to his Twitter account and accused Dorsey of trying to defend Carlson and then Dorsey responded saying, you know what? Quote, not defending a thing. And added up that he was adding that he was just holding up a mirror. So just a mirror at what they're all trying to do.

Elon Musk Sweetens the Deal for Twitter

"It. So Elon Musk, sweetening the deal here. He says he's come up with the financing, which is really pretty significant. He's been clearly working on that Morgan Stanley was his banker. Morgan Stanley, as well as a group of other banks, they have lined up the financing with him and he's got, he's got the means to do this. He's also got the means to actually sweeten the deal by about three $1 billion. So 25.5 billion in financing is coming from this group of banks, as I said, led by Morgan Stanley, including a 12 and a half $1 billion $1 billion worth of margin loan against Tesla shares that Elon owns. The rest of the money is actually coming out of Elon's pocket. $21 billion is going to spend right out of his own pocket to get this done at three and a half $1 billion more than the original $43 billion offering. So translation here, this guy is serious and it's going to be increasingly hard for the board to turn this one down. There is a board meeting coming up later next month, Jack Dorsey, his term is actually expiring, we'll talk about that in a little bit. But this meeting is going to be pretty

Why It Matters That Twitter Has 'Poison Pill' Clause for Elon Musk

"Is that a for profit company would be deranged not to accept an offer. Much more valuable than what it's worth to sell the Elon Musk. Any businessman who actually just wants to make money would be enthusiastic about selling their company to Elon Musk. Instead, what's happening is the Twitter board has now put forward poison pill amendments. They're trying to do everything they possibly can to try and kill the deal with Elon Musk. Elon Musk is coming in with a $42 billion cash offer, and the board is coming up with every sort of argument they're doing mental calisthenics, if you will, to try to block the offer, that Elon Musk is put forward. Why would that be the case? The answer is right in front of us. It's because Twitter does not actually care about making money. Twitter is not a for profit vehicle. Instead, they are a regime megaphone and a censorship machine that camouflages is a for profit company. A for profit company would be much more interested in trying to get the maximum for their shareholders. Instead, what you have at Twitter's ideologues disguised as capitalists. You have people that are left wing activists that sit on the board of Twitter that almost own no shares collectively. Now, this is a very important point because if you're not dealing with a company and you take a step back, you say, well, all of a sudden, do market principles still apply to that company. You see, we have been led to believe that market principles drive all behavior. That people are going to want to get rich and make profit. And that is generally the case in most business transactions. The most business transactions and merger and acquisitions, you're dealing at the very end of it. Who's going to make money? Who's going to get paid and get them out of the deal? This has happened with some of the most famous merger and acquisitions, whether it be U.S. airways merging with American Airlines. The biggest merger and acquisition to the last decade, whether it be cell phone companies merging, whether it be Comcast and NBC merging into NBCUniversal. All these different types of merger and acquisition trends over the last 20 years usually it comes down to is okay, I need more money, buy me out of my deal. Maybe you can guarantee the debt and let's move on. That's what happens when you have companies dealing with companies, but Twitter is a different type of thing. It's not a company. It's never been a company by the start as a company. Some people might have got rich along the way. Jack Dorsey definitely made some money, but it changed as the type of thing it actually is in 2015 and 2016 and 17.

Elon Musk Plans to Shake Twitter Up

"Elon Musk was recently on Joe Rogan's podcast and apparently you basically lit up and he lit up both literally and symbolically and then Elon says, quote, Twitter's next board meeting is going to be lit. I think what he's saying is that that is that this is not just a guy who wants to buy Twitter shares. He doesn't just want to become the largest Twitter shareholder. He's becoming more of an activist. And I think this couldn't come, this is not coming. This is coming when we really need it. And Musk has, after first buying the shares, now joined the Twitter board, which means he's going to be showing up at board meetings and he's going to be in a position of authority because after all, this is a guy who has the ability to buy a lot more shares and basically sees you can say virtually full control of this company. And the big shots at Twitter know it. So para agarwal, the kind of the Indian CEO of Twitter. He's like, I welcome Elon Musk to the board. And Jack Dorsey, I welcome Elon Musk to the board. So these guys are sounding the right noises and they have to because they really don't have any choice.

The Left's Scorched Earth Campaign Against Trump's Lawyers

"The Russian general clausewitz famously said that war is a continuation of politics, a policy by other means. What I want to talk about is the scorched earth campaign by the left against the Trump lawyers. This is something that is known as project 65. It's aimed at going after the Trump lawyers who supposedly assisted Trump in challenging the election results. And what this is is it's kind of the opposite of what Klaus wits was saying. He said war is policy by other means, but this is turning politics into all out warfare. It's essentially treating the legal profession, which is always taken the view that listen, people do have the right to a lawyer, a lawyer is an advocate. A lawyer should not be confused necessarily with the cause of the client. The client wants you to defend, hey, listen, I've been accused of burglary. I want you to defend me. That doesn't make the lawyer into a burglar. Hey, I want to challenge the election results. I want you to represent me. The lawyer is an advocate. That's the lawyer's role. And that's the legal system. That's the rule of law in this country. So going after Trump lawyers for arguing on behalf of their client, this is a gross violation of a basic principle. This is going beyond the politics of left and right. This is essentially saying, we don't even want rule of law in this country. We want to penalize the lawyers for the cases that they've identified with. And this is the project that's being led by this sleazy David Brock, who actually is very explicit about its goals. He basically says, we're trying to shame these people. And by the way, if they belong to big firms, we probably can get them, but he goes to small firms. We can ruin their life. We can ruin their reputation. I think the little fish are probably more vulnerable to what we're doing. You're threatening their livelihoods and you know they've got reputations in their community. So think of the shamelessness of this of this character, David Brock. By the way, a guy I knew before, he was he pivoted left largely on the basis of his nocturnal pursuits. Now, Alan Dorsey, which is outraged by what the project 65 is doing. And he says he's actually going to use his legal influence and potentially his own representation to support these

Did Elon Musk Just Save Free Speech?

Did Elon Musk Just Save Free Speech?

"Elon Musk has become the largest shareholder in Twitter. In fact, he's bought, it seems overnight, a 9% stake in this public company, Twitter. He now owns about 73 and a half million shares. And his stake is worth close to well, 2.89 billion close to $3 billion. And by the way, that's not a whole lot of money for Elon Musk because he has something like 300 billion. So this is money he's taking almost, you can say out of his back pocket. But it's caused a sensation at Twitter the stock actually has surged 25%. By the way, Twitter has been down. Some 50% roughly. Partly as people who have recognized this is not really a free speech platform anymore. And so it's lost a lot of its value and it's lost some of its some of its spice, the interest in Twitter was you had people from different sides of the spectrum who were able to go back and forth. And some of that kind of vibrant energy is no longer on Twitter. And of course, the most vibrant energetic tweeter of all time, Donald Trump is no longer on the Twitter platform, and that alone I think is a, it's an absence that is felt on Twitter. Now, very interestingly with Elon Musk. Now Elon Musk has taken kind of a passive stake by which I mean he hasn't announced yet that he's trying to remake the company, he's going to fire this guy, the fellow that Jack Dorsey put in his place to be the CEO of Twitter, so Musk is moving cautiously. At this stage, he merely owns a big stake and that means they're aware of him, but he hasn't moved actively to affect the management of Twitter, but he could do that next. There's nothing to stop him from increasing his stake, and of course with increasing his stake, he would increase his influence.

Elon Musk Takes 9.2% Stake in Twitter, Stock Soars

"So the guy's got a big Twitter account, shall we say? It's good news for the company because it had sort of been, I think in some ways kind of left for dead. It hadn't figured out how to monetize its business in ways that were going to really help it going forward. It had grown users. I would say over the last three years, we saw an improvement in the user base. So that was good news, and it certainly a sticky platform, but you have to be able to do something with all of that, right? So you have all these people there, you're growing the user base, but there's lots of competitors out there, and if you're not able to properly monetize the company, then it becomes very challenging. Anyway, so he is tweeting over the last couple of weeks. Hey, you know, should there be another platform? Do you think that Twitter really embraces free speech? So we got everybody kind of worked up and then lo and behold, it turns out that it was, I believe, on March 14th, that he made the purchase. So that means that was what about two weeks ago? Shares are up 50% since then. I think he bought it for just about $3 billion. So he's made a pretty sum. The question is, does he continue to make money going forward? And my answer, my thought on that is, yes, I mean, maybe not this week. Maybe the stock settles down, but ultimately, if he can join the board and I would think that he would want to join the board and I would think that the board would actually want him on there. Then he's going to have a hand in helping this company sort of figure out its strategy going forward, which means one being all encompassing in terms of bringing as many people to the platform as possible and allowing a lot of different viewpoints on that platform, which may mean getting a new tech team in, frankly, to adjust the algorithms so that you're not squashing things needlessly. And then the other thing is once he's on the board, maybe he can think even about how the company incorporates, I don't know, say something like crypto in its future, right? He's a huge crypto enthusiast. So maybe there's a play in this Twitter space again as it comes to monetize its user base to incorporate crypto and then the other thing that I'd be thinking about and I know we don't necessarily want to think this maybe there's a play here to sell the company ultimately to a private equity firm or to maybe a bigger tech firm or hey, maybe even like a PayPal that would be able to work in some of that crypto stuff. Now I'm just talking theoretically and I want to get to ahead of ourselves because right now I think we should all be sort of excited. I'm excited. The Elon Musk is coming to Twitter because I see him as kind of well just a revolutionary. He's a smart, brilliant guy, irreverent guy. He recognizes the insanity that's out there right now. Hey, Jack Dorsey even recognizes it. In fact, he was quoted today as saying, you know, you feels bad that he's kind of created this very single lane platform where only one view is tolerated. So I think there's a real chance here to improve upon this and look, I mean, my answer to bad speech is always more speech. You need people to be able to speak freely. And so if you can create that platform there with Twitter, then that's really going to be a very, very good thing. So ultimately, I think for shareholders, they should be looking at this and just rejoicing. Of course, they probably are because the shares are up 30% right now. But long term, there may be some real upside in this company. I mentioned sort of inability for a lot of different voices to be heard. And it brings me to one of our sponsors of this program, which is a Mac, they are doing what they can, everything they can to make sure all voices are hurt, especially conservative voices. I mean, it seems like a lot of voices shall we say are protected, but not when it comes to conservatives. And this is why amac is out there, the association of mature American citizens is standing up for you, standing up for the future of America conservative voices there for mature Americans that believe in freedom. And all the freedom loving things in American so want and want to hold dear. There's 2.3 million members here that share your values my values and you know what you get all kinds of great discounts, all that good stuff. So travel, hotel, cell phone plans, insurance plans, just go to amac dot U.S. slash Regan, my last name, REG and you can sign up. It's only $16 a year and you're going to get all this free stuff. So it's really, really worth doing. You'll make it back in a day. I'm so glad to be able to tell you about it. I really think it's something you should look at. So again, amac dot U.S. slash vegan for your membership and take a stand there for America. I want to get to oil because oil is continuing to move higher in today's market and I don't think we've seen anything yet. I actually think that oil is going to get really, really high. We're looking at about a 101 $102 per barrel right now. And that's in part, it's been eased because the president came out and said he was releasing the strategic petroleum reserve over the course of the next 6 months, which would be a 180 million barrels that would be released into the oil supply, but I'm going to tell you this, it's not enough. It's not enough, and it's only 6 months, and we've got to figure out a better long-term solution here. Because we can't be dependent on the likes of Russia. I'm sorry, but this is truly awful what we're witnessing right now. And what came out over the weekend is devastating and you can look at it in many places. I don't even want to show you. The kind of thing that makes you sick to your stomach and you think how can a nation be so horrible so horrible to its neighbors so horrible to its brothers and sisters and cousins and we see Russia, Russia is clearly capable of some pretty horrific awful stuff. So let me reiterate. We don't want to be giving them any business. We don't want to be giving them any money any any trade whatsoever in light of everything that we have learned. It's time for the United States of America to be completely self reliant. That means natural gas can't be coming from Russia. By the way, not just us. The free world in general. All of Europe needs to say enough. Now, it's coming out, you know, in the last 24 hours, we've heard more and more that we're looking towards greater sanctions, the U.S. both and the Europeans together are looking to sanction more of Russia, but I just question why we haven't done this already. What are we waiting for? I mean, we should be doing everything we possibly can to give Ukraine the assistance it needs. And that means sanctions like Russia has never seen before, that means military equipment to aid the Ukrainians, that means intelligence gathering, helping them, however we can. There's a lot we can do without actually finding ourselves in a situation that would be World War three. But we can't sit back and pretend that none of this is happening. We can't sit back and allow a monster like Vladimir Putin to do what we've seen him do. Meanwhile, oil, that's why I say you haven't seen anything yet. I mean, if you want to, if you want to play this one, the commodities fund is the way to go because there's no way that oil is going to go down any time in the near future. In fact, as we go into summer months, I would anticipate it's going to go higher and higher and higher. The refining capacity changes in the summer and there's additional things that need to be done to the oil in order to get it into gas tanks. And so that's going to be problematic. It comes at the same time when you have in the in the driving season, right? Some are driving season and it's all happening as the entire world just reacts with horror to Russia. So as more and more people and more and more countries, hopefully more and more countries, I'd like to see more and more countries shut Russia off, that means less of a supply out there that would drive up of course the price of oil. So it's so important that we start thinking strategically about how we fix this. And I'm sorry. I realize everybody wants these EVs. It's not going to happen. Tomorrow. And we need help tomorrow. We need help very much in the near future. So whatever can be done, we need to have some adults in the room in terms of our energy policy to think through this so that the American people are not paying the price with $9 at the gas pumps because that's what we're going to be looking at. And the answer is not giving them $800 in Maine or $300 in in California or saying, okay, we're going to forgive the 25 cents per gallon tax in Connecticut. No. The answer is having a long-term plan, a real solution. To make sure that we have energy for as long as we need it. For as many people as we need it. And that means a multi prong approach. I mean, I just can't believe the stupidity of these administration that wants to sit there and keep telling us, you know why? Here's why. There's no leadership. Absolutely positively no leadership. These people are all worried about getting reelected, and they've convinced the world that climate change is the biggest problem out there. So how are they supposed to turn around and say, well, actually, it turns out that Russia's the biggest problem out there, and now it's compounded by the fact that our lives are going to be harder as Americans because oil prices gas prices, energy prices are all moving up up and away. This is just one massive mess and I hope I hope. There are some smarter heads that will prevail. Look, I think if not, we're very likely looking at a recession. I've told you that before, I think a recession is very much something that could be in the cards, only because you can't have $9 a gallon and not have some kind of effect. We're going to see because we're coming into mid April here, how this affects earnings. All the companies with their earnings reports are going to be coming out. We'll get a sense of whether or not the consumer really can withstand these higher energy prices. I don't think they can. I mean, look, I guess it's good because people are going back to work and so maybe they have a little bit more money, you're seeing that reflected in the unemployment rate, which continues to drop. The number of jobs added, which was more than expected, maybe people are going to have a little bit more cash on hand to pay for this higher oil, but look, I think there's a real risk that we're heading into a recession as a result of these higher energy prices, not that I would trade it. I mean, I actually think that, you know, you make choices in life and you make choices as a country, and sometimes you just need to stand up for what is right. And standing up for Ukraine is the right thing to do. I want to get to legacy precious metals that I told you about in the beginning of the show because with all the chaos in the world right now, probably saying, how do I how do I manage this if I'm trying to think about my retirement? How do I hedge out all this inflation? And one of the very best ways to do this time and time again is gold. I mean, I have believed that for decades now. And I've been proven right. It's not always perfect, right? There'll be times when maybe the market out performs gold, but then when the market's down, that gold comes in pretty handy. And right now we're looking at nearly $2000 an ounce, they're on gold. So this is an investment worth having. This is an investment worth holding.

How Breitbart's Emma Jo Morris Came to Know Hunter Biden's 'Laptop From Hell'

"Welcome back to one on one with me Sebastian gorka and breitbart's Emma Joe Morris. Emma, I'm curious, I'm not a journalist, if anybody calls me that, I correct them very, very rapidly. But I'm very curious that I want to want you to walk us through the inside story, give us a little bit of inside baseball because I love the New York Post. It is, I believe the oldest extant newspaper we still have founded by Alexander Hamilton. So as you're breaking this story of the laptop from hell, what is it like at the post? What is your management think about the impact your coverage is going to have and then walk us through is just before the election, Jack Dorsey, Twitter and Facebook just memory hole this orwellian New York Post story just has to disappear. Yeah, I mean, so we became aware of this laptop in September of 2020. So just before the election, about two months before the election. Was it through Rudy or Bernie or yeah? So I can tell you that. So Steve Bannon has a producer named vish who I knew from New York. He's from New York. He was not previously in politics. This was his first job with somebody political. And I knew him from my days back in Hannah. I used to hang out with him a little bit. He was friends with some mutual friends, and we had kept in touch, and I went to the New York Post in any way. They obtained the laptop or Rudy does actually. And then Bannon becomes aware of it. And these are copies, right? So the story. Certain people to download the hard drive. Exactly. Exactly. He gave, well, he gave Rudy's lawyer the first coffee that was out and they were looking at it. Oh, multiple laptops. One. A one, because they were two in the stool, weren't there? No, well, I think there's 300 laptops in circulation. Wow. The post had one. Okay. And that was the one that went through Rudy. And Rudy called Bannon because there was so much China on there and Rudy knew that Bannon was the guy for that. And decide, they need to get this out into the press. So Bannon's producer, I knew from years ago, and he was telling Dan and I know somebody an editor at the post, you got to get in touch with. And she is going to know what she's looking at and you better call her. So I got a call from Steve Bannon who was actually on Yankee poor. I'm Jewish. So I remember that way. Very intense holiday, actually. And he calls me and he says, I have to Steve actually called you. Yes. Okay. Bitch texted me and said Steve Bannon. It's a big deal. When Steve Bannon doesn't get somebody else to call you, that's a big deal. Leave a story. Oh, you don't miss it. Of course. And sex is a big deal from Steve. Trust me. Especially at 3 a.m., which is when he used to text. He carry on. So this randomized text me seems about to call you, don't miss it. I get the bone. He says, I have a story that's about to change your

"From NPR and WBUR I'm Peter O'Dowd in Phoenix and I'm Callum borchers in Boston it's here and now Jack Dorsey is out at Twitter Again the Twitter cofounder announced yesterday he is resigning from his second CEO And while Dorsey remained CEO of the payments company square his sudden departure from Twitter has many wondering did he go on his own Or was he forced out Let's bring in Vanity Fair correspondent Nick bilton He wrote the book hatching Twitter a true story of money power friendship and betrayal Welcome to here and now Thanks for having me You've been following Twitter since it's inception Do you see this resignation coming I did not see it coming and I don't think many people around Jack did You know Jack cofounded Twitter 16 years ago with three other people And really spent a lot of the early days of his career pushing two of them out so that he could remain in control of the company And it's really been like the TV show Succession over there for a long period of time And it's always been Jack trying to remain in control in some way And so for him to quote unquote resign abruptly right now I think shocking to a lot of people I think one of the reasons for that too is that he's been very resilient over his career and maybe if I had asked you this question a year ago Nicky wouldn't have been surprised but we know that he recently survived an ouster attempt led by activist investors So it seemed like maybe he was going to be in the clear but maybe we didn't really know what was going on behind the scenes so I wonder if you think that power struggle is ultimately what toppled him this time So there are a lot of people who I've spoken to this week who have said that Elliot management and investment firm that came in about 18 months ago and said hey look the way this company is being run is not working out They have about 1.2 billion in investment and Twitter They were upset that Jack Dorsey was running both square and Twitter at the same time He's the only CEO on the Fortune 500 It's running two public companies He just really wasn't focused on Twitter And you know they set out a few guidelines instead of these goals aren't met We're really going to push for a CEO change And Jack what seemingly happened was he was able to kind of fend them off But I think from the reporting I've done and what I've heard this week is that he knew that he wasn't going to be able to do that the next time And it was clear from the board being upset and some of the other investors that there was going to be pushback for Jack to eventually have to step down And so this was his way of doing it without being fired But for Jack to not only leave effective immediately yesterday as the CEO and to be leaving the board in May really says that this wasn't necessarily a choice that he wanted to make So let's go back a little bit because as I mentioned at the top this isn't the first time that he's had a run as the chief executive at Twitter And he was ousted and then he came back in 2015 and at that point he argued that he was really the only one who could run the company he had helped to start it after all You've written in your book that at least at the early days of the company he wasn't particularly good at managing a company sometimes folks have a brilliant technology idea but the management side of being a CEO escapes them Did that change in the intervening years though did he become the manager later on that he wasn't at the beginning You know what's interesting He I think a lot of founders in tech They have brilliant ideas and then they can't execute And it's more often than not that that's the case But there are these rarities There's the Jeff Bezos is in the Mark Zuckerberg's and the Steve Jobs And I think that with Jack it's kind of a little bit of both in the early days He was keeping you know the company's finances on the computer that he didn't even have the password to there's all these crazy stories of things that happened in the early days He really did not know what he was doing And I think that what has changed is that he kind of half knows what he's doing and he half doesn't you know square has been a perfect example of a company that he's been the leader of that has done incredibly well It's stock has jettisoned over the last few years It's had a rough year this year but it's you know it rose every year for the past 5 years With Twitter it was almost like he was frozen as a CEO because he was afraid to make any changes That product it has barely changed in 16 years You know if you look at the early days of Twitter and Twitter today it looks exactly the same If you look at Facebook in the beginning and today it's a completely different company But Twitter has not been that And so I just don't think that he was the right person to necessarily lead Twitter But I think he has become a pretty adept CEO when it comes to And it's very apparent that he is very strategic in the boardroom And that he was able to stave off being pushed out for this long I think you know definitely said something Well and to your point about square I think if you go by market cap it's something like two or three times more valuable than Twitter is even So is it possible Nick that he just developed other interests or things that he wants to spend more time on be it square be a cryptocurrency or perhaps just devoting time to a personal life that sometimes can get forgotten about when you're in the startup phase He's all over the world hanging out with Jay-Z and Beyoncé and people like that these days He's definitely hit that level of CEO I don't think it's that I think that you know I think Twitter is a very difficult company to run and I think you definitely need a specific mindset to do it And I think Jack always thought that you had to be a founder to do it And I actually think that it's a rare company where you don't where I think you need to come in with new ideas You know I think one of the things that I found really fascinating about his resignation letter was that it was almost as if he was bragging that you know he said you know after almost 16 years of having a role company from cofounder to CEO to chair to exec share to interim CEO to CEO it's finally time for me to leave That to me it's like if you've been there that long and the companies in the state attend it's clearly your fault You know it's not anyone else's fault And I think that the fact that he wasn't able to see that Even now when he's not necessarily leaving on his own accord I think is pretty telling about the state of Twitter and his role in it Well let's dig in that a little bit to the state of Twitter because one of the things that he and a lot of social media executives for that matter have struggled with in recent years is moderation particularly as it relates to the former president Donald Trump He initially started flagging Trump's tweets as misinformation eventually banning him from the platform How do you think Jack Dorsey felt about the direction Twitter was heading I don't think he felt anything about it I think he you know.

"Dot org to receive any advertised product. You must become a member of pen fed, federally insured by NC UA. There's been a changing of the guard at Twitter, CEO Jack Dorsey, the eccentric cofounder known for his dedication and meditation, fasting in Bitcoin has stepped down. Replacing him as a Twitter veteran few outside the company have heard of NPR's tech correspondent Shannon bond has more. Jack Dorsey left Twitter once before. In 2008, he was pushed out as CEO after clashing with a fellow cofounder. He told employees in an email yesterday, this time he's leaving on his own terms. The handover comes at a critical moment for big social media platforms. There's a lot of heat and a lot of friction and politics associated with being these social networks on which so much public conversation plays out. Margaret omera is a Silicon Valley historian. She points to Facebook's recent pivot to building the so called metaverse. So too, perhaps Twitter is looking at what is the next gen social network going to be? Now the man responsible for answering that question is parag agrawal. He's a Stanford trained computer scientist who joined Twitter as a software engineer a decade ago. He became chief technology officer in 2017. Twitter insiders say agrawal is a close confidant of Dorsey, who shares his vision of a future in which Twitter runs on technology that gives users greater control. They expect cryptocurrency and the blockchain to play big roles. Dorsey has been talking up this vision to investors for a while. Here he is on an earnings call this summer. So obviously I've been treating and talking a lot about the crime so I thought it was important to explain a little bit more as to why. Well, some current and former employees told NPR they were surprised agarwal was tapped for the role. Dorsey says his trust in his successor is, quote, bone deep. As technology chief agrawal worked on machine learning and other technical advances that have allowed Twitter to roll out new features and products more quickly. As it's tried to shake off a reputation for being slow to innovate. Historian omera says choosing agrawal to succeed Dorsey is a signal that the technology itself, the technology of the platform and redesigning what social media is like will be something that Twitter is trying to center going forward. Now it will be agrawal, not Dorsey, who's the.

"Internal pessimism in regard to the business. That will have to wait and see. But those are some benchmarks to keep an eye on those user goals and that revenue goal, because as it stands right now, that's what the streets expecting. And so leadership is going to have to figure out a way to deliver. Last thing before we move on, you think back to let's just say January. Who are the CEOs of the big tech companies that occasionally get hauled in front of Congress to answer questions? And now we've got Jack Dorsey joining Jeff Bezos. In 2021 is saying, I don't think I'm going to do that anymore. Yeah. Well, I mean, I don't blame it, but it doesn't really look like a very enjoyable experience. And you add to that the fact that it does, I'm getting the vibe that a lot of those people in Congress don't quite know what they're talking about. They could be off base, but I'm just throwing it out there. Just in time for cyber Monday, Amazon executive Dave Clark said this morning on CNBC that his company is about to become the largest package delivery service in the United States. Passing both UPS and FedEx, if not by the end of this calendar year, then in early 2020, are you surprised by this? Because as an Amazon shareholder, who has watched them build up their delivery service over the past decade, I'm surprised at this. I don't know when I thought it was going to happen. I didn't think they were that close. I've started thinking about this more and more lately just because we have multiple Amazon packages delivered to my house on a daily basis. For whatever reason, there's always something being dropped off. My dogs can attest to it. What I've seen more and more respectfully, your dogs are not the one paying for that. No, no, they're not, but they say for whatever reason. It's like I'm pretty sure you and your spouse are the reason. They're the beneficiaries of some of those packages, but yes, you're right. They're not the ones forking over the bucks. But I think it strikes me that more and more of these delivery vehicles have that Amazon logo on them. I've noticed that. It's not to say we don't have FedEx and UPS stop and buy as well. But it's certainly the ratio has come far more to parity than it ever has been. So I'm not terribly surprised. I think to me with Amazon, the biggest risk for Amazon has always been ultimately not living up to what they say they want to be. In being the world's most customer centric company. So if they start getting the reputation of not being able to get stuff from point a to point B on the timeline that they promise, consumers will go elsewhere. There are more options out there now. I mean, ten years ago, Amazon was a little bit more of an only game in town sort of thing. But that's not the case today. You have other options. And so I think they saw that. I think a while back. Bezos has always been very, very forward in saying how scared he is of customers and the competition and customers always waking up the next day and choosing someone else..

"I've always been a Twitter user, but to me, it feels like, you know, we talk, you and I talk a lot about businesses that we feel like there's a ceiling, and I feel like Twitter the platform may be has hit its ceiling. I don't believe it's a platform for the masses. I think it serves a unique purpose, but I don't think it's a platform for the masses. It's free flowing and fast nature. I think it's going to make it difficult to monetize meaningfully over the coming years, which is going to be a big problem for mister ago agro wall. I honestly thought kave on Beck poor would have been the guy taking that chair over. He came on as the one of the founders of periscope came onto the Twitter team when that deal was finalized. He's been the head of consumer product there for a while. But either way, I think it's good to see someone internal. I just don't know how much I don't know what else they can really do with it. I think that's going to be one of the biggest challenges. There is an argument to be made that the smoothest transition is to go with someone a long time executive like this. But to your point, this is going to be interesting to see over the next let's call it 6 to 12 months. Are there going to be significant changes to the business? You think back to when Satya Nadella took over at Microsoft? And within that calendar year, it was obvious that he was going in a different direction than his predecessor Steve Ballmer was. And I think there's an opportunity here for the new CEO. There is a couple of couple of things there. Number one, I don't know if you had a chance to read the email that jag Dorsey said. I found it very enlightening. It was a very interesting perspective, I think he has there in regard to founder led companies because his primary point. One of his biggest points in all of this, we talk a lot about businesses that are founder led and how much of a how much we value that. Founder led business being such a high quality dynamic there. So you always really take note..

There are a couple of things I want to get to, but let's start with, look, we're long-term investors, but let's start with the very short term movement of the stock. Because one way to read what happened was that everyone got very excited. And look, this has been pushed by some activist investors who were pushing for change. Not happy with what has happened with Twitter stock over the last few years. Initially, you could look at this and say, oh, great, we got the change we wanted. And then, and this is not a knock on parag agrawal. But one way to read what happened to the stock, or what is happening with the stock is that.

"29th, 2021, I'm Brian McCullough today, Jack Dorsey is reportedly about to be a one company CEO if he steps down from Twitter. The acquisition of giphy is on life support. Folks remember Microsoft could be an antitrust target to well apple's AR headset not need to be tethered to an iPhone and a look at just how much Amazon has increased its delivery capacity. Here's what you missed today in the world of tech. Early this morning, David Faber was reporting that sources were telling him that Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey is expected to step down from that CEO position quote Dorsey currently serves as both the CEO of Twitter and square his digital payments company. Twitter stakeholder Elliot management had sought to replace Jack Dorsey as CEO in 2020. Before the investment firm reached a deal with the company's management. Elliot management founder and billionaire investor Paul singer had wondered whether Dorsey should run both of the public companies calling for him to step down as CEO of one of them. It is unclear who is set to succeed Dorsey, but if he steps down, the next CEO will have to meet Twitter's aggressive internal goals. The company said earlier this year, it aims to have 315 million monetizable daily active users by the end of 2023, and to at least double its annual revenue in that year end quote. It is worth noting that early this morning Twitter stock was up as much as 10% on this news. As Barry riddles tweeted, just be glad that when you quit your job, your company's stock price does not rise 10%. The rumor that I just saw on Twitter is that Dorsey and Twitter's board have already settled on a successor. And as I would point out, there is a strong and maybe obvious internal candidate to step up to the CEO position. It is friend of the show and sometimes guest on our Twitter spaces, kayvon, bake pour, who has been the leader of Twitter's recent product renaissance of late. Though, as Matt Levine tweeted, quote, what are the odds that the next CEO of Twitter currently has a Twitter account? Like zero, right? The most important criterion for a senior executive is that you've never used the product. I used to make fun of Twitter for this, but now I think it's just obviously a good idea and quote. Shows what I know. Late breaking news to report here after I recorded that last bit that Jack Dorsey released a departure statement, quoting the verge. The company confirmed that CTO parag agrawal will succeed Dorsey and says that Dorsey will remain on its board of directors. Bret Taylor is taking over as the new chairman of the board. In a statement Dorsey said, quote, I've decided to leave Twitter because I believe the company is ready to move on from its founders. My trust in Prague as Twitter's CEO is deep. His work over the past ten years has been transformational. I'm deeply grateful for his skill heart and soul. It's his time to lead. Quote, agrawal joined the company in 2011 as an ads engineer, eventually taking the title of CTO in 2018..

Creating a new business joining seller cash title focused on building an open developer platform with the sole goal of making it easy to create non-custodial permission list and decentralized financial services. Our primary focus is bitcoin. Its name is like our new bitcoin hardware wallet. We're going to do this completely. In the open open road map open development and open source mike. Brock is leading and building this team. And we have some ideas around the initial platform primitives. We want to build. How is this different. From square crypto square doesn't give direction to square crypto only funding. They choose to work on l. d. k. And are doing an incredible job. Td we'll be focused on creating a platform. Business will open source our work along the way so when you read that. A lot of people noted that they sort of sounded like they wanted to build defy on top of bitcoin and mike brooks tweets around the announcement seemed to point in that direction. As well quote. I also believe that technology has always been a story of decentralisation from the printing press to the internet to bitcoin technology has the power to distribute power to the masses and unleash human potential for good.

That's going to propel the work the movement and is so needed for our organizations. Our communities are dorsey. That was my last question. But i definitely want to give you the opportunity.

We're focused on one account now, but we're going to be focused on everybody's accountant in the year to come. Well, is as he usually does. And as he promised, now, they have more information about Big Tech Twitter. Jack Dorsey. Ah, lot of the work that we've been doing over the last week is work we built on in other places. What does that mean? Especially since other big tech, you know, came to the rescue to silence their competitors. Their you know their competitors like parlor anyway, and it goes on. They have a Twitter legal policy trust. Safety lead. One of the interesting things is that a lot of the work that we've been doing over the last week and they go on from there is work we've built on another places around the world, and we've seen the violence unfold as a result of either mislaid leading information or coded rhetoric. And then a lot of the leanings here in the U. S have come from other markets. So in that sense You know, we do feel like it's our global approach. Let's play it. You aren't going to be Oh, cool, retro, they said, And I know it is going to take some time. You know, just killed close up way are focused on one account right now.

"Jimmy dorsey welcome to the model majority. Podcast today thank you for being one of our very first episodes to record in the year. Twenty twenty one which is a very exciting for so many people that we are here at this point but before we get into all that one actually start from the very beginning to get to know your personal story a little bit. i love to hear about. Where did you grow up. how did you grow up. And if anything during that time leads you become who. You are today as a chef but also has an activists usc for sure so i was born in shanghai china and my parents moved to the us when i was around to pursue their both of them are scientists and so they moved to new york. They went to a school in the bronx. And so i followed them when i was up three and a half with grandparents so i was really raised by my grandparents growing up <hes>. And lived in new york until about eight. Yeah that's i think that's right. I moved to seattle so i. I set my larger chunk of my childhood in seattle washington and ended up going to school <hes>. College in seattle as well so like good decade plus in seattle cut the no it and during that time also like learned. I think that seattle is not the place for me. I really really wanted to go back to new york so right after college and making that switch back to new york i i. <hes> started in management consulting after college. I was a finance major in school. Originally marketing major switched over to finance was not doing so great. Marketing and very quickly knew that finance. It's fine but it was something that is not naturally good at it. You know. I think everyone kind of has their own talents and you can tell you a talented something when it's really yes you're still gonna have to work hard and there's times where you're not doing great job or what. Not but for the most part. Like in makes just intuitively makes sense to you and tell. The numbers intuitively. Don't make sense to me the way that they did to other people <hes>. And i hate like the serota asian being good at math and talk about that maybe later on but at least it was like a way to get my foot in the door ever since i was young. Who was always a big part of my life. But i didn't even think about it in college or honestly dion for a while because it was never really encouraged by my family. My family going up with more traditional than they are now <hes>. I'm chinese american and like and we kind of because they were scientists. They were very wary of <hes>. Career or they felt that. I cannot get ahead because they were you know they were in our lab. They were always the ones that were doing all the work. If you've just look at lab dynamic <hes>. it's always usually by hawk. Individuals a lot of them. Asian east asian or south asian. Doing all the research all the were all the writing but who is the main like name on the paper that you see who's getting nobel peace prize for their work in science. It's usually white men and that dynamic played out throughout my childhood. I never really consciously understood it but now looking back it was. You know my parents had these bosses. And i'd be like but you do everything and they get all the credit. I'll get it. You know so anyway. I think my parents really wanted me to find a career where i could succeed and not have to be under someone's thumb so to speak and they really wanted you know they've really encouraged less ultra prenatal careers for more careers where you can make money and you can be independent so business. Definitely they definitely encouraged. I was an undergrad business school and they were like yeah. You can now go out as a console. You do make a lot more money like you know so. They just wanted that stability they wanted to non you know. Be a lab technician salary for me <hes>. Even if they really loved the sciences sciences so anyway with that kind of mind food never really felt like a real clear path. Never really thought about. I never really even explored at. I had no idea what to do right. I think a lot of people who are interested in food don't really know how many years pm and <hes> starting my career absolutely hated it. I was in the fashion and luxury division. So i usually work with clients in your fashion and luxury so i spent a lot of time <hes>. By clothes being obsessed with clothes and shoes and being skinny and it was like a really tough period of time because everyone around me really encourage that behavior as well. It was always about how you lose more way out of your book. Nice you know there was a lot of judgement and it. I think it really came to a head. there was one time at <hes>. At work where our partner came in and she was very fashionable. Amazing like wealthy <hes>. Woman and she had brought in a bunch of clothes she had purchased at a sample sale. We <hes>. We work in chelsea in new york city and chelsea market. Has this like if you've been. There was kind of large area in the center of the market. That always has sampled feels. And i guess she had gone to hurry and she just said that she would just buy everything that basically that was in her size and just figure it out later and it was. I mean there was a lot of things but let's about. But i just remember thinking of this woman coming ahead at all. You know she was. She was such a bath right and the fact that she would come in with a garbage bag full of new clothes designer clothes. It's like it's never ending hole in your heart that you're just trying to fill with dot and you can't ever fill it like spoil alert for anyone who's over there you can't feel it it's impossible it doesn't matter how much money you out you can't feel it because that's not something that can be so thing
