As somebody who has Aspergers, hearing Elon proudly speak about his neurological condition in his opening remark is really inspiring. Tackling every industry by storm, from the arrival of the electrical automobile; to colonizing other worlds. @elonmusk is one hell of a human being! https://t.co/pb7wQ0ZM80
