    So much for tolerance...

    Twitter is an extraordinary tool in so many ways. But, it’s a troll-lined black hole for civic dialogue. Last night, serial inventor Elon Musk dared to express a political opinion on Twitter and paid the price. “Always admired Margaret Thatcher — she was tough, but sensible & fair, much like my English Nana,” he tweeted.

    While the reaction to Musk was relatively tame, compared to the usual firestorm of epithets and Hitler-themed accusations, the utter lack of informed dialogue does not spell good things for the future of democracy and social media.

    Sarah Palin Tesla Swipe Leaves CEO Elon Musk 'Deeply Wounded'

    He's handling this with humor though.

    Sarah Palin is probably trying to get back at Musk for all his abuse of the Republican party for being anti science and uninterested in newer technologies.

    I think he's going to win this one.
