Earlier, when business magnates spoke to each other, the markets trembled. But now, with everyone and his neighbour intimately connected over the interwebs, even if they never physically meet, conversations between private citizens and public figures around the world transcend any domestic polities.

Elon Musk and Anand Mahindra, both of whom share a common interest in automobiles futurism, tech, space and other mandatory geek subjects, recently had an exchange of ideas on Twitter.

It began when Mahindra posted an article on NASA's Insight Probe having made a successful landing on Mars, while expressing a hope that poets, rather than property agents, get first crack at populating the red planet.




Musk replied that there was room for all kinds of creator types on Mars (in more ways than one), as there was much to build on the barren planet.




Undeterred, Mahindra continued to pitch for the poets, while Musk went on to predict a timescale for the colonization of Mars by Earth (and not the other way round, no matter what the movies tell you).




The SpaceX founder estimated that it would take 7-10 years for the first colony of humans to gain a foothold on the new planet.




Musk and Mahindra have a history of exchanging ideas and news over Twitter, to the obvious delight of the social media platform. As the InSight probe begins its exploration of the red planet, we hope for more insights on humanity from the two industrialists.
