Emerging Currencies, Citgo Seizure, Tesla Board: CEO Daily for August 10, 2018

Spotify and Samsung

Spotify is partnering with Samsung to provide streaming music across all the South Korean giant’s devices—smartphones (in which Samsung is the world’s market leader,) TVs, watches and speakers. The preinstallation agreement is a big boost for both partners in the fight against Apple Music. “We believe that this significant long-term partnership will provide Samsung users across millions of devices with the best possible music streaming experience, and make discovering new music easier than ever—with even more opportunities to come,” said Spotify CEO Daniel Ek.

Ryanair Strike

The European budget airline Ryanair is suffering a pilot strike in five countries today, leading to a cancellation of a sixth of Ryanair’s flights. The carrier has been facing long-running industrial action over the negotiation of collective labor agreements—about 300 flights were cancelled last month, though this strike is affecting 400, with pilots walking out for 24 hours in Germany, Sweden, Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Avenatti Run

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, is not exactly publicity-shy—and this may be part of the reason why. Avenatti, who enthusiastically rails against President Trump at every opportunity, has revealed that he is exploring a presidential run. He will address the Democratic Wing Ding fundraiser today in Clear Lake, Iowa. Bloomberg

InfoWars and Twitter

Remember how Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said the platform wasn’t booting conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his InfoWars outlet because they hadn’t broken Twitter’s rules? “It’s worth noting that at least some of the content Alex Jones published on other platforms (e.g., Facebook and YouTube) that led to them taking enforcement against him would have also violated our policies had he posted it on Twitter,” Twitter VP Del Harvey told staffers in a Wednesday email. Well, CNN looked into Jones’ accounts and discovered he had posted all of the same Islamophobic, harassment-encouraging content to Twitter and its Periscope service. Oops. CNN
