Elon Musk Is a Digital Citizen Kane

From a New York Times story by Shira Ovide headlined “Elon Musk Is a Digital Citizen Kane”:

What if one of the world’s important tools for information was owned by a mercurial billionaire who could do whatever he wanted with it?

I am talking about Elon Musk’s proposal to purchase Twitter for himself, which he disclosed on Thursday. His offer works out to more than $43 billion, which is a lot of money, even for Musk, the chief executive of Tesla and the owner of SpaceX. (Musk’s letter offering to buy Twitter said that his purchase would be conditioned on finding help in paying for the acquisition. It didn’t say where the money might come from.)
