President Joe Biden tested negative for Covid-19 but will continue to isolate, according to the White House.

Biden “continues to feel very well,” White House physician Kevin O’Connor said in a memorandum on Saturday. Despite his negative antigen test, “in an abundance of caution, the president will continue his strict isolation measures pending a second negative test,” O’Connor said.

Biden, who is fully vaccinated and received two booster shots, first tested positive for Covid on July 21 and then tested positive for the second time in a “rebound” case one week ago.

O’Connor had previously warned of the potential for a rebound in positive test results, a phenomenon among a small percentage of patients who, like Biden, used the antiviral medication Paxlovid as part of their treatment.

Musk challenges Twitter CEO to public debate on bots

California: Elon Musk on Saturday challenged Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal to a public debate about the percentage of bots on the social media platform.

"Let him prove to the public that Twitter has <5% fake or spam daily users!" Musk said in a tweet.

He also started a poll asking users whether less than 5% of Twitter daily users are fake/spam.

Twitter on Thursday dismissed a claim by Musk that he was hoodwinked into signing a $44 billion agreement to buy the company.

Musk filed a countersuit against Twitter on July 29, escalating his legal fight against the company over his bid to walk away from the purchase agreement.

Earlier on Saturday, Musk said that if Twitter could provide its method of sampling 100 accounts and how it confirmed that the accounts are real, his deal to buy the company should proceed on its original terms.
