Tech: What's really going on at Twitter HQ?

From Nine To Noon, 11:10 am on 24 November 2022

Tech commentator Paul Matthews joins Susie to talk about the latest developments at Twitter since Elon Musk took over.

Has Musk managed to destroy his $45B investment in a matter of weeks, or is it that he's turning what had become a bloated, lazy company into a lean, mean, fighting machine?

The Reserve Bank Governor raised the cash rate an unprecedented 75 points yesterday and as with some other countries, things are looking increasingly dire economically for 2023.

So why is the tech sector looking so upbeat? And are autonomous vehicles spying on us?

In a complaint filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission and published in part August 23, 2022, by The Washington Post and CNN, Peiter Zatko also accused Twitter of significantly underestimating the number of automated bots on the platform -- a key element in Musk's argument for withdrawing his $44 billion buyout deal.
