      They’ve also been extremely successful in creating a culture where your goal is to constantly want more followers and to get more likes and retweets of your content.

      I have over 1,500 followers on Twitter and was guilty of having these goals: I was gaining an average of 50 new followers a month until I decided to step off that treadmill.

      So it will be interesting to see how radically they change the platform: maybe they’ll expand their character length to 500 characters like Mastodon, to increase social conversations.

    • These fly on the wall moments between two icons are always intriguing to observe. Replace Elon Musk with Henry Ford and DeGraase Tyson with Einstein and you’re now reminded of what an incredible world we live in compared to the pre-internet age of our grandparents.

    • Can you imagine if we can attract a big enough audience someday to get Elon Musk and Neil deGrasse Tyson having a conversation on a Cake panel? I always wanted to see that with Tyson and Hawking.
