Hey, remember how Did Elon Musk buy Twitter? It has been a turbulent week since then, both on and off the controversial social media platform. There are still many open questions about what is going to happen on Twitter. But the whole bizarre deal also raises questions that extend beyond a single platform. For example, how can this affect the spread of misinformation online? How can this affect democracy? At the moment, there is no better person to help answer this question than powerhouse technology journalist Cara Switzer.
At Gadget Lab this week, Cara joined us to talk about Twitter, Elon’s strategy, Web3, and cryptocurrency.
