Top tweets by CEOs in November 2020
1. Albert Bourla’s tweet on Pfizer and BioNtech’s deal with European Commission for Covid-19 vaccine
Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, shared an article on an agreement inked by pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and BioNTech with the European Commission (EC) for the supply of 200 million doses of their investigational mRNA-based Covid-19 vaccine candidate, BNT162b2. The EC also has an option to request an extra 100 million doses of the vaccine candidate, under the agreement.
The European Union (EU) member states will order doses of BNT162b2 vaccine candidate, subject to receiving regulatory approvals from the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The vaccine doses will be produced at BioNTech’s manufacturing sites in Germany and Pfizer’s Belgium site. The deliveries are scheduled to be initiated by the end of this year.
Just as important as developing a safe, effective #COVID19 vaccine is getting it in the hands of people around the world. Today’s finalized supply agreement with the @EU_Commission is another major step toward that goal. #ScienceWillWin https://t.co/nvdtYbwhjJ

2. Yoshitaka Kitao’s tweet on XRP Ledger
Yoshitaka Kitao, president of SBI Holdings, shared an article on the future development of the Ripple’s XRP Ledger (XRPL), a decentralised cryptographic ledger, and the need for crypto regulation in the US to support technology innovators.
The article noted that the recently launched XRPL v1.6 features upgrades such as negative Unique Node List (UNL) code to improve the robustness of the network and hardened validations to allow the servers to identify inadvertent misconfiguration of validators.
The advantages of the new XRPL include quick transaction time, low cost and high volumes of transactions, as well as support for a diverse range of functionalities such as time locks, escrows and multi-sign, the article highlighted.
Stuart Alderoty, Ripple’s General Counsel, noted that the US Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s recent announcement permitting banks to provide custody services for cryptocurrency to customers was a positive development for the industry. Further, the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau acknowledged Ripple and XRP as user friendly in terms of cross-border transactions.

8. Dr. Ilham Kadri’s tweet on Solvay implementing global remote working policy
Dr. Ilham Kadri, CEO of Solvay, a chemical company, shared an article on the company announcing the incorporation of global remote working policy into its work culture. The announcement was based on a survey, which was conducted between 10,000 Solvay employees who have adopted teleworking due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The survey revealed a positive teleworking experience from the employees, as they did not have to travel anymore thereby increasing productivity. Roughly 40% of Solvay’s employees have adopted remote working since March of this year due to the ongoing pandemic.
Proud to share that #RemoteWorking will become @SolvayGroup’s standard.
The impact the pandemic has had on our #FutureofWork is an opportunity that we do not want to miss. #Solvay’s capacity to adapt and reinvent is what powers our #innovation.
