Grow Your Business, Not Your Inbox
Hard to believe that there is anybody in business who isn't already on Twitter, but Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess just joined and immediately went after Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
"Hello @Twitter! I'm here to make an impact with @VWGroup, especially on political issues," he tweeted. "And, of course, to get some of your market shares, @elonmusk — after all, our ID.3 and e-Tron have won the first markets in Europe. Looking forward to productive discussions."

Diess' tweet has racked up 4,900 likes so far. Not too shabby! Now we'll have to wait and see how Twitter ninja Musk replies.
