Elon is back in the news, announcing that Twitter will now report directly into X corp. Is this the X everything app plan or a way to hide expenses?

Spotify goes non-exclusive with Gimlet. Was this a planned or surprise move?

And a new Deloitte survey shows that video games now top the content chart. What other changes in content consumption are ahead?

Bytedance, the owner of TikTok, puts big money behind their Instagram/Pinterest clone called Lemon8. Pushing for a May launch in the states, Lemon8 is going directly after Instagram (and perhaps the US government). Will it succeed in an already crowded social media field?

Bud Light gets hate mail from Kid Rock. Is that a good or bad thing?

And AI continues to be the leading story in the world of marketing. When will the hurting stop?

In rants and raves, Joe raves about a Lin-Manuel Miranda clip, while Robert rants about Twitter (again).
