The Morning After: Elon Musk faces lawsuit over his Twitter investment

Elon Musk, Tesla CEO, SpaceX boss, that guy, has been Twitter’s largest shareholder for mere weeks but has packed in enough drama and turmoil to make it feel like months.

He’s now facing legal action over the handling of his latest investment. A Twitter shareholder has filed a class-action lawsuit against Musk over his 11-day delay in officially disclosing his investment in Twitter to the SEC.

It continues the bizarre ebb and flow between the Tesla CEO and Twitter. After becoming the social network’s biggest shareholder, Musk agreed to join Twitter’s board of directors. Then, the decision was reversed following several days of bizarre tweets from Musk, who polled his Twitter followers on whether the company should change its name and speculated on whether the service was “dying.”

As we noted in our report, Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal told employees it was “for the best” that Musk ultimately wouldn’t take the position on the board.

Meta is going hard on its vision for augmented reality and the metaverse. According to anonymous sources talking to The Verge, the company aims to launch its first AR glasses in 2024. These would be followed by a “lighter, more advanced” model in 2026 and a third iteration in 2028. The initial model would be independent of your phone, but you would need a “phone-shaped device” to handle the computing part and rely on a wristband for controls. Are you ready for some AR accessories?
