✋ 5 things you should never do in a remote interview

Presented by
 
Elon Musk is buying Twitter for $44 billion. But you already knew that. What you don’t know is, what the heck happens next? Is Twitter over? Or could Twitter be approaching a new golden age? It’s a story I’ve been tracking closely since I’ve covered Twitter’s design team extensively over the last year—and specifically how it’s tackling problems like misinformation and abuse. Having followed Musk’s own tweets about how he plans to fix Twitter, I’ve been surprised by one thing in particular: Most of Musk’s ideas are popular with his massive following, but they are actually features that Twitter already has in the works.

My opinion is that Musk’s ideas for Twitter aren’t nearly as bad as some have implied; the problem is that for a thinker as future-forward as Musk, they are relatively conventional. If Musk plans to fix Twitter, he needs to be the leader who gave us the first great electric car and the first reusable rocket ship—not just another viral Twitter star. Read my story here.
