“The algorithm is convinced that I can 'make money through Audible,'” said Musk in response to a thread involving Dogecoin DOGE/USD co-creator Billy Markus and CEO of enterprise cloud firm Box, Inc BOX Aaron Levie.
Alex Kehr, the CEO of cryptocurrency-oriented social network Superlocal, told Musk he could “probably” make a lot on Audible, an audio-book service by Amazon.com, Inc AMZN. Musk said he did “recommend a lot of books.”

Why It Matters: Musk had planned a war on spam and bots on Twitter Inc’s TWTR platform after announcing a $44 billion unsolicited bid to take over the platform.
The entrepreneur terminated that purchase and says Twitter made false and misleading representations to him on multiple data requests.
Musk sent out a volley of Tweets in the 24-hours leading up to press time and shared the books he has recently read, which included “American Caesar” by William Manchester and “Masters of Doom” by David Kushner.
Price Action: In premarket trading Tuesday, Tesla shares were down 1.73% at $690.89, according to Benzinga Pro data.
