Fun Fact

Lady Gaga – the most followed Twitterer, with almost 78 million followers – gains followers faster than Twitter adds new accounts.

"Difference is of the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. The answer to difference is to respect it. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace – respect for diversity." RIP John Hume

So many questions about this deal. Will U.S. TikTok be interoperable with the non-U.S. version? Does Microsoft get the algorithm, or just the users? Will there be a global app war to see who can develop the most addictive version of TikTok?

Amazing that a 3-hour series about Rupert Murdoch focuses almost exclusively on newspapers and Fox News, barely mentions Sky or the studios, and ignores social media and streaming. You‘d learn more about the media industry from one episode of Succession. https://t.co/7ypw5MLJQE

Late to this, but “Putin’s People” by @CatherineBelton is a phenomenal piece of work. A rare combination of forensic reporting in the service of a broad strategic narrative. Eye-opening and deeply troubling in equal measure. https://t.co/H76tnlj0ck

Spent the past week reading @MESandbu's "The Economics of Belonging" and "Angrynomics" by @ericlonners and @MkBlyth. Two short-ish books that tackle a lot of big ideas. My review for @Breakingviews https://t.co/tz9LdF23QO

If the NYT were run by avowed Maoists they couldn’t have done more to hasten the revolution than this article. https://t.co/lgem3YFPDD

From @Breakingviews: As a growing number of people avoid public transport, the estimated $65 billion bicycle business seems to be buzzing, says @peter_tl https://t.co/682BHOS14e https://t.co/HWv51Wpgsk

Pandemic-induced fear of public transport and state subsidies have boosted the $65 billion bicycle business, with growing numbers opting for battery-assisted pedalling. As with cars, the shift is disruptive, writes @peter_tl: https://t.co/H0UEFZfaBw https://t.co/LMLkeL1bLR

Being asked to check basic facts in opinion columns before publication is apparently part of the "progressive cancel culture". Good to know, good to know.

I'm not saying markets are frothy, but Spanish mobile tower operator Cellnex is raising €4bn from shareholders to fund acquisitions that it hasn't made yet.

Investors earlier this month: ignore Q2 results, we know they're going to be bad. It's all about the second half.
Investors today: look at how resilient Unilever was in Q2! https://t.co/IIAfYZIidr

This is how British civil servants say: "Even SoftBank didn't think this was worth rescuing, yet you expect me to believe a model that gives you a 20% return on investment?"

This is the real scandal: it’s not just that Johnson blocked the report for nine months but that the Tories blocked any investigation of Russian interference for four years. https://t.co/Wcf5KisFxd

Lots of details to pick over, but the big picture is clear: the EU will collectively borrow €390bn and distribute the funds to its most stricken members. Another way the pandemic has accelerated developments nobody thought would happen for many years. https://t.co/HNtyhJZERx
