Breakfast Briefing: Five things to know Friday

Judge orders SEC and Elon Musk to work it out; Who writes the longest shareholder letter?; Biden's first post-allegations speech; Prince Harry stole my Instagram.

A judge Thursday ordered the SEC and Elon Musk to work out a disagreement over Musk’s tweets. The SEC claims a Musk tweet predicting Tesla will make around 500,000 cars in 2019 broke an agreement that mandated he get tweets pre-approved by Tesla if they are material to the company. (Marketwatch)

Who writes the longest shareholder letters, JPMorgan’s chair and CEO Jamie Dimon or Berkshire Hathaway’s chair Warren Buffett? Quartz reports that this year, Buffett’s letter runs only 14 pages. Dimon’s, on the other hand, is more than more than 50 pages long. As a Quartz graph shows, Dimon overtook Buffett in the page count race back in 2008.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will find out soon if one speech can make a difference. Biden is speaking today to a meeting of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Washington, his first major appearance after allegations were made by several women that he engaged in unwanted touching. Political observers think Biden may enter the presidential race sometime in the next few weeks. (USA Today)

The former owner, Kevin Keiley, said the handle name comes from his support of Reading FC (football club) which is nicknamed the Royals, and the fact that he lives in West Sussex. Keiley admitted he has few followers and doesn’t post often.
