Genshin Impact Update 3.0 Drops Details
It’s been days that leaks have been raining on Genshin Impact and it seems that the studio wants to take the lead in releasing some official information. We were treated to a small presentation video where we could see a large jungle to explore thanks to the new Dendro element. And with this novelty, three new characters seem to be confirmed: Tighnari, Dori and Collei. And if the last was expected among the new faces of 3.0, the other two names on the table are completely new. This update is scheduled for July 13.
Elon Musk and Twitter, it’s over
After months of waiting and various twists and turns, Elon Musk has finally decided not to buy Twitter for 44 billion dollars. The social network would not have respected certain commitments yet written black on white in the agreement: give a significant figure of the number of fake accounts on the social network. If Twitter has communicated the number of 5% of fake accounts existing within its service, Elon Musk and his team have believed from the start that this information is largely underestimated. However, for him, this information is essential to estimate the real value of the social network. For its part, Twitter threatens the entrepreneur with a lawsuit. The leaders of the platform are hoping to force the sale. as Bret Taylor, chairman of the board of directors of Twitter explained: “The board of directors of Twitter is committed to closing the transaction at the price and on the terms agreed to with Mr. Musk and plans to pursue legal action to enforce the merger agreement. We are confident that we will prevail in the Delaware Court of Chancery”. A statement that did not fail to react Elon Musk. According to him, Twitter’s lack of transparency about the bots present on the platform is the main cause of the breakdown of the agreement.
