Twitter is nonsense. Don't take it seriously. That, in essence, is what Elon Musk and his team of lawyers argued in the defamation case won by Musk last Friday. Twitter is "infamous for invective and hyperbole," his attorneys said in legal briefs. Users "play fast and loose with facts," they said. Forums like Twitter "are not a source of facts or data upon which a reasonable person would rely." Twitter participants "expect to read opinions, not facts." Which raises the question: If Musk's Twitter account, with its 29.9 million followers, can't be taken seriously, why should anything Musk says there about Tesla, SpaceX and his other companies be believed? And for those concerned about the functioning of open and honest financial markets, how can the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission continue to consider Musk's account a legitimate channel for investor communications?

Prince Andrew returned to work in the UK today as he attempts to ride out the storm over his friendship with late billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. The Duke of York has been at a golf retreat in Spain for the last two weeks - during which time Epstein's alleged victims have made a court appearance in the US, with one urging the Prince to 'come clean' over his past. Andrew has faced repeated allegations that he had sex three times with a 17-year-old Virginia Roberts, who is now a 36-year-old married mother of three called Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
