12:17 pm
thank you. it's been nearly one full month of elon musk at the helm of twitter. his tenure has been riddled with drama. the latest of which has the billionaire attacking apple seen editor ensure. joining us now for a little twitter talk this you and thank you for joining us. >> tweet tweet. how are you doing? tweet this sounds to me a little risky for elan to be attacking apple in this way. i know it stems from apple cutting advertising on these social media site. elon accusing the company of hating free speech for doing so at this point app has apple responded? >> they have not. and it's worth noting all of this has to have allegedly in front of it because elon musk is not actually provided any details or evidence of everything he's saying. and unfortunately, we have found numerous experiences and times that we've written about on see that where he wasn't telling the or it was a slice of the truth. so you want to be
12:18 pm
careful kind of taking him at his word at this moment. but it is worth noting that he is taking this stance against apple. and look, he's the world's richest man. apple is the world's most highly valued company. feels like wwe. g match, right? starting to come up together against each other. and look, i i don't know how it's all going to play out, but i imagine that apple is going to end up fighting this the way they have with everyone else which is saying, it's our it's our court. you've got to play by our rules. and if you don't, you get off our court. and that's basically what the courts have said. they're allowed to do. >> well, and if you do end up getting in such a tiff with. >> apple where? >> what? almost a million. if not more than a million users of twitter actually are accessing twitter from an apple >> i mean, you don't expect apple to pull twitter from its app store anything like that right? >> it's hard to tell. part of what's been interesting is that apple and google represent a very interesting kind of a gate keeper within
12:19 pm
the tech industry. they don't use that power very often. but those app stores that they have are incredibly influential rented for a lot of people. that is the doorway into a lot of these services and apple could choose and they they have, for example, done this to other social networks, smaller ones, more popular among the extremists. they said, look, you're moderation isn't good enough. we're not going to allow you to run on our story and potentially have child abuse imagery or you know it. using your networking are apps to be able to recruit people and all sorts of other stuff. so in reality, as you want, musk has been cutting staff friday cut by half within his first week and then he basically chased out another group of it's really good question about whether or not they actually happen of moderation to meet apple standards. and it's it's really possible. apple could say no, this is not good and kick them out. >> i guess we'll have to wait and see. i know. of course this all stems kuzma. stu has
12:20 pm
vowed to take a much more relaxed approach towards speech on twitter. another nation of that is the ending of the platform's covid misinformation policy. functionally, what will that look like for users? >> a good number of people are going to be showing back up on twitter and this is something that he has talked about since before about the company. you know, he said that he want to bring buyback credit for president trump. he since actually done that. he brought back marjorie taylor greene, the the georgia republican congresswoman who was kicked off of twitter earlier this year because of covid misinformation. she's been allowed back in and he's basically said, look, i'm going to allow amnesty for a lot of people who were kicked out for various reasons one way or another. he won't allow them to come back if they were spamming and if they were breaking the law. while though, if you if you go by breaking the law that allows a lot of behavior that we didn't allow otherwise, including like terrorists recruiting and whatnot. so i'm really curious to see what's going to come of all this, but at least for the time being, you can expect a
12:21 pm
lot of the very outspoken, a very, you know, anti fauci characters that we had in the mainstream discourse. unfortunately a year ago are probably going to come back. >> going to come back and then things that they'd tweet will not necessarily have a banner saying, you know, this may be misinformation, which is the way that they were doing. things of the last couple of years. >> yeah, i mean, you musk has said that he wants to encourage the community notes feature, which for those of you who don't use twitter and i, i really ynvy you on some level. what it is is it's a thing that puts kind of a note at the bottom of tweets that other people write pointing to the actual information. so if it's something as counter to what the cdc says, the community writes up a little now, this is actually here's the information. cdc web site right there. so that is something he's wanted to encourage. but we have seen time and again over the last month or so. he is interacting awash with people who are considered to be extremists, particularly on the right wing. and it makes a real
12:22 pm
sense that, you know, there's this feeling that he is trying to push twitter over toward being much more allowing of extremist behavior that before just wasn't go out. >> well, yeah, when you said un be some people who who aren't on twitter sometimes i'm like, do i unfollow him? do i keep telling him some of the pictures that he posts are a little weird. so, you know, but you have to keep up to date and will continue to do that. and thank you so much for joining us. absolutely. thanks for having me. happening right now, the california energy commission is holding a hearing on the record gas prices we've been experiencing. but the state's major oil refineries are not participating in this chevron valero marathon phillips. 66 and pbf energy all refused invitations officials with the western states petroleum association are representing those companies. instead, state lawmakers want to know the reason for the record high profits by oil companies at

couple early storms had california's snowpack looking healthy, but that followed with a long, dry period. putting us back well below normal. that could change this season, though, with more rain hitting the state in just a couple of days after a promising start the month of november has mostly been dry, but it is about to change a wet weather pattern promising to bring measurable rain and snow to the sierra dennis shanahan reports from lake tahoe where people are anxiously awaiting that change in weather. >> when you have enough snow for ski areas to be open in november, it's hard to complaints. think what i've been waiting for all summer, like. >> i've already i come up here. every chance i get like i can't. i came straight from school up here. every skier and snowboarder. we spoke with the boreal is thrilled to be on the mountain, but they all admit that conditions could be better. i'm really excited for. >> it's no more because right now it's not the best. it's not like really like soft. the snow is pretty hard packed right now and a little thin.
