Twitter was adding these at a frenetic pace in the lead-up to the November 3 election....

In his introductory remarks at the Big Tech CEOs’ hearing before the House subcommittee on antitrust on July 29 (available to watch here), Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg conveniently gave a skewed picture of Facebook’s dominant position. “In many areas, we’re behind our competitors. The most popular messaging service in the US is iMessage. The fastest growing app is TikTok. The most popular app for video is YouTube. The fastest growing ads platform is that of Amazon.

Billionaire tech mogul Larry Ellison says he and Elon Musk are 'close friends.' Here are 8 other tech exec friendships that have thrived in the competitive world of Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley might be competitive, but it also appears to be a breeding ground for friendships among its famous execs. It makes sense: the tech world is home to some of the richest people in the world, and life can probably get a little lonely at the top.  Elon Musk, for example, is close friends with Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, as well as Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey.  Larry Ellison gave a eulogy at Steve Jobs' funeral, and he also has a love/hate relationship with c...
