Translation: OK, outright suspending trading was a little too obvious a play folks, be more subtle next time. We're looking at how we can prevent those pesky retail investors from screwing us ever again.

What's that? We're a government agency that's paid by and is supposed to work for the people?

Let's have the richest man in the world make phones that the slightly less rich cannot censor. Got it.

Twitter's censoring Sci-Hub which is under threat of being banned in India where for many it is the only way to access knowledge.

Meanwhile Trump who is tweeting again.
