Tesla CEO Elon Musk: ‘Who controls the memes, controls the Universe’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been very active on Twitter lately. Over the past few months, Musk has been very vocal about his displeasure with the media and government’s handling of the ongoing coronavirus. Last week, Musk wrote on Twitter saying: “We must pass The Great Filter; …social media is a limbic amplifier, which inherently destabilizes civilization.”

Today, in one of his recent tweets, Musk said, “Who controls the memes, controls the Universe.” His latest probably has a lot to do with mainstream media response to the ongoing unrest and chaos around the country. The country is polarized along ideological lines. Historical statues are being torn down by protesters and rioters across the country. The United States has become an “us versus them” society.

Late last year, Musk slams mainstream media of hypocrisy calling them “the holier-than-thou hypocrisy of big media companies.”  In an aggressive Twitter posts, Musk bashed the media and vowed to start a website that would evaluate “the core truth of any article & track the credibility score over time of each journalist, editor & publication.”

As for his latest tweet, Musk received immediate reactions from millions of his followers with one user asking: “Yo @elonmusk what do you think of this you probably see it too?”

Another user posted a tweet of memes for the upcoming months. “August got memes you’ve never seen,” Twitter user Nerd City, said.

Amazon focussing on digitizing MSMEs in India, working on getting more sellers onboard

Ecommerce giant Amazon’s top company executive has revealed that the platform is focussing on digitizing MSMEs in India & is working on getting more sellers on board and hiring more people.

Amazon Director Investor Relations David Fildes said that the company has talked about India many times. 

He added that the great part about a place like India with all geographies is that there are a bunch of micro, small and medium-sized businesses, which is why the company is focusing on digitizing Indian sellers. 

Amazon has already launched a bunch of new features to help support digitization efforts with some of the brands. 

The company is focussing on on-boarding more sellers and hiring some people as well to work around their goals. 

Many ecommerce platforms, including Amazon, have been aggressively investing in expanding infrastructure and adding solutions to enhance consumer and seller experience on the platform. 

Intensified competition with JioMart’s entry

The US-based company is a constant competition with Walmart-owned Indian company Flipkart, which would further be intensified with the entry of Mukesh Ambani’s JioMart. 

Earlier this year, during Amazon founder Jeff Bezos visit to India, a fresh capital of Rs 2310 crore was fueled into one of its India units as per the regulatory documents. 

During the investor call, Amazon’s CFO Brian Olsavsky said,

“What you also see are investments in new countries. Obviously, India is the biggest one, but also, to a lesser extent, Middle East, Brazil, Turkey, & Australia are recent additions. So there is always an element of expansion going on there.”
