Elon Musk demonstrates the power of his portfolio by buying Twitter
On April 25, Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors, bought Twitter for $44 billion. Musk is one of the richest and most extravagant entrepreneurs, either because of his obsession with making Mars habitable or because of his recent statements about buying the world’s most famous soda brand to “put the cocaine back” (… to put the cocaine back in).
With this acquisition, Musk affirms that he will promote freedom of expression, a position that has caused controversy and debate among specialists. While users expressed their outrage at spending millions on a social network and began to compare and search for other alternatives in which Musk could use his fortune, such as the fight against world famine.
Follow the “round” between Eugenio Derbez and the Mayan Train
On April 20, during his morning conference, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador called the celebrities who participate in the #SélvameDelTren campaign to talk with him about the Mayan Train project. However, last Sunday the Presidency announced that the meeting it would have with the “Selvame del tren” group, which includes actors such as Azela Robinson and environmentalists such as Arturo Islas, had been canceled because several of the guests would not attend, but the celebrities pointed out that this was not true, because the only one who canceled had been Eugenio Derbez.
“I already talked to everyone and nobody said that I was not going to attend, the only one who said that I was not going to attend was me for this reason, because I have been filming a movie for two months, I have a contract with an American studio and the date is I have been away for two or three months and I cannot be in Mexico City today,” the actor clarified through a video he posted on social networks.
On Friday, April 29, the protagonist of “Refunds are not accepted” spoke with EL UNIVERSAL about the controversy:
“It is not a fight against him (AMLO) and suddenly I felt that it was already becoming something personal; we are more than 70 and the only one he mentions practically every day is me or because I couldn’t because I had to go to film the meeting was cancelled, so the intention was to lighten up a bit with comedy and say ‘it’s not personal, we’re just letting you know that there is something that is happening here and that’s it,’ if he doesn’t want to pay attention, it’s fine, no problem, but that’s why I decided to put humor, so that it’s not so confrontational, “said Derbez in an interview.
For his part, Rubén Albarrán, vocalist of Café Tacvba, published a letter on Twitter in which he is grateful that this meeting will not be held at the National Palace, because then the debate on the Mayan Train would have been held in “that dark place from where the they have been executing so many atrocities against the people and nature” a discussion “in a limited and pre-censored way: speaking only of Section 5 and in a way that you and your team would not bother”.
WhatsApp crash causes panic
On the afternoon of April 28, WhatsApp went down in different countries. Although the failure was brief, thousands of complaints saturated social networks such as Twitter and Telegram. WhatsApp reports reveal that the application had connectivity problems mainly to send messages. This was around 3pm and ended at 3:50pm.
