If you can exercise restraint and not touch the money for the 10 years, take the money now, invest at 10% simple interest, compounded annually and you'll have much more than doubled the money in 10 years. Year 1: $100,000 + 10% = %110,000. Year 2: $110,000 + 10% = $121,000. Year 3: $121,000 + 10% = $133,100. Year 4: $133,100 + 10% = $146,410. Year 5: $146,410 + 10% = $161,051. Year 6: $161,051 + 10% = $177,156.10. Year 8: $177,156.10 + 10% = $194,871.71. Year 9: $194,871.71 + 10% = $214,358.88. Here you are at year 9, more than was to be offered if you took the uncle's offer of year 10, and you can still add another 10% to the total. If you're certain that you would actually leave the money for investment, you'd come way out ahead taking half as much now and let the bank pay YOU interest. If you're not so confident regarding your restraint, perhaps you should leave it and take the $200,000 in ten years. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Take the money now.

How do you choose who sees your tweets if you have it set to private Can only the people you are following see them or out of the people you are following can you choose who sees them and who can't?

If your account is private then only people that are following you can see your tweets. It doesn't matter who you are following, they must be following you to view your tweets. So, if you are following someone but they aren't following you then they won't be able to view your tweets.
