Elon Musk ’s deal to take over Twitter “cannot move forward” unless he receives more information about spam accounts on the platform, he has said.

On Monday, in a long thread, Twitter chief executive Parag Agarwal claimed that the company would be unable to provide such proof publicly because it relies on private and internal information. Initially, Mr Musk replied to that with a turd emoji.

Far-left Vanity Fair published a 90-gazillion-word boot-lick to Disney’s Star Wars franchise that eventually sputters to a close with the only information that matters… As a film franchise, Star Wars is dead… “That leaves the question of what’s happening with the Star Wars movies,” wonders Vanity Fair . The answer is hilarious … “We have a road map,” [producer Kathleen] Kennedy says, although Lucasfilm’s big-screen return is unlikely to follow the same relentless cadence as before.

Is it true that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will produce a Star Wars film? “I would love to see what movie he might come up with,” Kennedy says. “But right now, no, there isn’t anything specifically.” And the trilogy from The Last Jedi ’s Rian Johnson that was announced five years ago? … [Read more...] about Nolte: Vanity Fair Confirms Death of ‘Star Wars’ Film Franchise
