Just how charged is the discourse around Tesla these days? Can a journalist criticize the company without being called a short or a pawn for Big Oil? Can they write something positive without being called a member of Elon Musk’s cult? Evidently not on both counts, if you’re the Wall Street Journal’s Dan Neil, who…
Rick & Morty and Community creator Dan Harmon unleashed a Twitter rant for the ages on Sunday, describing the bizarre experience of horrendous service and unengaged staff he had during a recent trip through New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk is a billionaire. He has access to a private jet. It was a holiday weekend. Faced with similar circumstances, he could’ve done literally anything the human mind could conjure up. Instead, he spent the weekend tweeting, getting caught up with Actual Nazis, and then tweeting some more. This is a play…
The billionaire who cosplays as a Bond villain and claims artificial intelligence will be the end of mankind is arming 20,000 of his devoted followers with flamethrowers on a Saturday evening.
As long as people have been selling cars, they’ve also been knowing what they have. This isn’t just an internet-age problem, either. Sellers know more than you, and have done for a very long time. If you’re going to low-ball them, don’t even bother calling, because their ratty and rusty old Jeep is VERY RARE.
A couple weeks back, Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent reporters on a wild goose chase over (possible) plans to send a Roadster into space aboard one of his toy rockets. He told The Verge it was legit. Then he said it was “totally made up.” And then a source told the news outlet it was real. Why’d he spend a weekend screwing…
Jason Calacanis, founder of Engadget and investor in dozens of companies, including Tesla and Uber, would like to know if it’s morally acceptable for millions of people to die in a preemptive strike against North Korea. It’s just something that came up over dinner.
It is widely accepted that Twitter is a horrible place, full of Nazis, misogynists, near-provocations of nuclear war with North Korea and people who openly call themselves Thought Leaders. But! Every now and then something good happens on Twitter. This is one of those times, and the result is a ton of Top Gear…
Uh-oh: someone forgot they were logged into the official, corporate IndyCar Series account. Worse yet, they mentioned the son of the United States’ preeminent Twitter troll in the process. Ohhhh nooooooo.
A follower of Elon Musk on Twitter literally begged for the upcoming Tesla Model 3 to have a traditional speedometer for those who wouldn’t be using Autopilot, but Elon ain’t having it.
To be fair to BMW, California doesn’t usually get this much rain. Audi’s social media team isn’t here to play fair though.
The anti-submarine belt (or “crotch belt,” since it goes between your legs) tops of the list of car parts I hope never, ever become sentient. Yet someone made a Twitter account for exactly that part of the No. 96 Turner Motorsport BMW M6 GT3 over Daytona weekend. I’m disturbed, but...weirdly entertained?
There’s a C-130 circling New York City right now. Why?
Do you know what helps end civil wars? Peace talks! Do you know what is not helping us try to avoid World War III? Dumb tweets! Truly, a fitting end to humanity.
The official Honda Twitter account (@Honda) threw its support behind Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for a few short moments during the the debate Monday night, and then quickly deleted the tweet.
I may have lied to you. You may need to follow for these two tweets.
Failed GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s former PR person Amanda Carpenter got trapped in an Amtrak elevator at Baltimore-Washington International Airport this past February. She tweeted at Amtrak saying that she was stuck, pleading for help. Amtrak’s official Twitter account came to the rescue—a mere eight months…
If you take nothing else from Elon Musk’s bizarre, conspiracizing beef with Fortune, know this: the CEO of Tesla is hilariously petty.
Elon’s anti-journalist tweets are getting weird, man.
