Regina King and Don Johnson in WATCHMEN. That's it. That's the tweet.
How does this relate to the movie?
It's based on the comics, so stuff they changed for the movie gets changed back. But mainly, the original story is set in the '80s, and this is set in 2019 but in that alternate universe. So some characters are back but older; otherwise, brand new storyline.

As an investor, if you lead subsequent rounds of funding, you're "smoking your own supply." Good investors require third-party, arms-distance validation of the firmโ€™s value here & now. #SoftBank was the only lead investor in #WeWork, through multiple rounds, since 2016.
This is too much of a blanket statement although I agree in the specific case of SoftBank here.
Except when @sequoia did every single round of @WhatsApp and had the biggest returns of the past cycle... itโ€™s healthy to get an outside lead for hygiene, sure, but itโ€™s also good to double, triple and quadruple down if you have a huge winner.

In the tech industry, we need to be more reflective of short-term vs long-term gains. It's best to always ask not only how much money can your company make but also how much money should you be making! @mattieuGA and I further discuss this topic๐Ÿ‘‡ Part 6 of 8

@KingJames 1m people in concentration camps in China โ€” being tortured and raped every day. Itโ€™s not worth the 10% salary cap boost โ€” speak up!
Amazing how @MSNBC and others are ignoring @AndrewYang โ€” itโ€™s almost like they donโ€™t want him in the race.
Letโ€™s hope Mr. Rather, letโ€™s hope.
What does an independent candidate for president need to show to get in the final debates? How did Ross Perot do it, why hasnโ€™t anyone done it since?
You have to meet a polling threshold. I believe for Perot it was 15%.
Amazing... @Qantas is trying to fly direct from London and NYC to Sydney โ€” which saves a couple of hours and is completely unnecessary (but I love it!!). #ProjectSunrise is rad... if only we had a new fuel source that could get us to supersonic levels & boost speed!
20 hours from nyc to Sydney โ€” wow! Longest commercial flight in the world being tested... I recommend a couple of days in LA or SF to shorten this trip, but ok maniacs, fly direct!!!
Can you imagine if the @nba kicked them out? What a brutal situation for the @nba which could be 100% banned in China if this keeps up... salary cap goes down maybe 10%? a great lesson for all businesses: you canโ€™t bank on the communists for ๐Ÿ’ต .
