This is something interesting!
What are your views on "X, the everything app"?
This also sounds familiar to China’s WeChat!
Manas Goel Someone needs to seize Elon's phone.
Valentine Enedah Though the idea of the everything app seems appealing to me! , what are your views on that?
Manas Goel Elon Musk has too much time on his hands, but i don't doubt he could create an everything app
Manas Goel I totally resonate with . He has too many companies he is in control of even to add the school he started for his children are now have other people enrolling in it.
It's a lot to build an everything's app.
If the product managers of the company are genies then it's possible.
That's true , I also believe some of his claims and aspirations are irrational, but then irrationality can sometimes just be a bridge to greater inventions and discoveries! , Do you believe in Elon as a person who could bridge this path?
Manas Goel Regardless of his controversial life, Elon is a revolutionary.
From electric cars to speedy internet, construction, brain work,AI.
Elon is that guy!
Indeed Valentine Enedah, a nimble-witted technical and management team is paramount for this! However, do you believe Elon's thought process and work ethic could enhance the productivity of such a team?
Manas Goel I actually came across an article on the internet that says Elon works up to 16 hours daily.
I don't know about you but that work rate is something most people can't match.
My only problem is that, working 16 hours a day and you are not as rich as Elon is disheartening 😔
I believe he has a good work ethic but sometimes it could be extreme.
That's true Valentine Enedah, these are the work ethics I was talking about. 16 hours daily may sound like a fortune in making, but in reality, in my opinion, such practices will only deteriorate the overall productivity of employees if such a culture is imposed!
Manas Goel Wellsaid!
Manas Goel I don't know what the X, the everything app is but I love how pretentious this quote is. Musk does see himself as the instigator to everything new.
Might make you A FAN now?😂 Mónica Freitas
Manas Goel I don't see that happening. Unless he surprises me with something that can actually be accessible and life changing for everyone
Though I haven't had first-hand experience since I'm from India, according to what I've studied, isn't Starlink a promising initiative? Mónica Freitas It might fulfill the accessibility criteria?
Manas Goel, I thought he didn't want to buy Twitter after all 😂 But what is X, the everything app? I only know WeChat for communication, so I don't really get the idea haha
This tweet is weird. His core fans will defend it :melting_face:If he wants to emulate WeChat, is it regulated by the Chinese Government?
He has been saying he wants to create a platform free from such with his proclamation of free speech at all costs if I am not mistaken.
Sara Pinto Mood swings I guess😂(though they cost heavily on my stock portfolio🙃). WeChat isn't only for communication, it has more than 1 billion monthly users, according to one estimate, and is a ubiquitous part of daily life in China. Users can hail a car or taxi, send money to friends and family or make payments at stores. In 2018, some Chinese cities began testing WeChat for an electronic identification system that would be tied to users’ accounts too! People basically live on WeChat in China!
Musk , wants a similar kind of app , basically a Swiss army knife of mobile apps, offering a suite of services for users such as messaging, social networking, peer-to-peer payments and e-commerce shopping.
elizabeth modupe I agree with the government involvement angle. But emulating WeChat really might be a game changer in the states!
