minutes. a couple delays from grant line road, 22 minutes. well, good morning. a very happy thursday to you. elon musk says he's willing to buy all of twitter $54.20 a share. musk says that's his best and final offer. note the $4.20 in the price. he often includes that in his dealings. he purchased 9% of twitter saying twitter needed to let people say what they wanted with less censorship. musk writing in the required government filings, quote, since making my original investment in twitter i now realize the company will neither thrive in its current form. twitter needs to be transformed
5:15 am
into a private company. the total offer would cost musk about $43 billion. that's easily affordable for the world's richest person. he's worth $265 billion give or take. coming up at 5:30 we'll talk more about what musk's offer means and what it means if twitter shareholders don't accept. other news, google will unveil today details about how it's investing in california and san jose in particular. google, as you may remember, is developing a mega campus in downtown san jose near the train station and the s.a.p. center. it's also adding on to its mountain view campus and expanding into nasa. google released a financial report showing the company had created more than $600 billion in activity in the american economy. amazon is going to add a fuel surcharge to third party sellers who use amazon's distribution. 5% tacked on to the seller's cost.
5:16 am
it's reasonable to think they will pass it on to you, the customer, sellers who ship themselves will not be affected. and a bit of news from the world of nfts, that's nonfungible tokens, the sort of license to own something intangible. something people think they're the future. other people roll their eyes. case in point the very first tweet ever made by twitter's founder, you can't put it in your pocket. you can't put it in a glass case, but you can buy the nft that shows you own it. somebody did. they paid $48 million for it. he's ready to sell. the high bid is $280. >> $280? >> yes. >> oh! i was thinking million. >> i was trying to lead but you but, no, $280. >> hmm. >> not a good profit there at all. >> do a little tiktok dance. >> oh, lord.
5:17 am
anyway, speaking of tiktok, more news for you here. social media giant testing a new feature allowing users to dislike individual comments on videos. tiktok says people can flag comments they find irrelevant or inappropriate. dislike will not be visible to others. users can already dislike videos on apps if they are not interested in that content. and a new netflix series has a lot of viewers buzzing especially among parents with young children. >> it's called "old enough" and is a popular show from japan. why don't you decide if an american version will be dropping anytime soon. >> so the show has toddlers run family errands instead of their parents. while it stretches the limits to children's independence, it may be good television. some child experts are raising
5:18 am
flags. skeptics wonder if maybe the show is a little more staged than it wants to lead on. the "today" show is asking this morning would you let your toddler do your shopping for you? head to and tell us what you think. you can see the little kid didn't even get past the thing where you put a quarter in. oh, gum. >> i actually watched that clip. he's less than 3 years old and he remembered everything on the list. he got the curry he forgot and came back and picked it up. my thoughts the way the u.s. is kind of set up. >> my kids are getting older and i don't let them out of eyesight. i don't know. >> and those kids were in the age range of 2 to 5. no. absolutely not. i don't have kids and i'm like, no. i guess the little flag, i'm running errands. i'm a little kid by myself, i guess. >> technically they're with the camera show. they're not completely alone. >> just no. no. don't.
5:19 am
it's time to get up and out and maybe you'll be running some errands. you can take the kids with you or leave them at home, i don't know. we are going to see some of this rain moving through. we're dealing with this on our way to work and a look at the bigger view shows there's more rain farther to the north. for us it's mainly sprinkles as you are heading out the door. i think it's enough to grab the umbrella, make sure you have that close by as we get a closer look at storm ranger. our mobile doppler radar. we can see there are some showers moving through parts of southern sonoma county over to marin. 101 is soggy heading down into san francisco and also with light showers moving around hayward, also union city as we see the rain kind of drifting off to the west to san ramon. a live look at our san francisco camera. you can see the low clouds misting there. we'll continue to see the wet weather with us. at times you may even seep the sun peeking out as our
5:20 am
temperatures head for the low 60s in the south bay, dublin only reaching 59 degrees. these are the temperatures we've seen for the past couple of days. it does get a little bit warmer tomorrow in some spots. we'll even see some low 70s, a mostly cloudy sky. that nice warm-up won't be here very long. we will see the rain on saturday and that will drop temperatures quite a bit. we see more widespread rain by 1:00 and some light showers. it may take its time before it makes it to san jose and we're not expecting much. friday we're dry and then saturday early in the morning is when the next round of rain comes in and this may be more widespread and heavy. i think that's perfect sleeping in weather. a tenth of an inch possible for san jose much less morgan hill and then you head up to concord t. could be a quarter inch of rain. in total with that next round of rain coming in, this may really
5:21 am
add up to a decent amount. we are going to see the widespread showers on saturday, dry sunday, and then on tuesday more rain coming in. we could also see another storm system behind that on thursday. i think finally our april showers may lead to may flowers. we're looking at some of the snow also for the sierra and a very late season big snow as we will see some of that coming in. our temperatures will be in the low 60s for today but then low 70s for easter sunday. vianey, how is it looking now for the morning commute? >> we had a couple of fender benders. this is in castro valley along the crow canyon road stretch at norris canyon road. there is a lane blocked through there. hopefully they work to clear out the lane so it doesn't remain blocked.
5:22 am
580 about seven minutes. you're looking at about 12 minutes and also a smooth commute through there. no delays all the way from the north bay down to the south bay. we're moving along quite nicely and no metering lights just yet. i'll send it back to you. >> all right, thanks. next here on "today in the bay," the reason the queen is opting out of easter celebrations. why some experts are trying to downplay the decision. but first as we head to break take a look at this. vianey arana getting in on a little fun there she shares this photo on instagram. i love it. don't forget you can keep up with vianey giving her a follow on instagram, twitter and facebook. she's filling in for mike here this week. we love to have her around. she'll be up soon 5:22.
