Elon Musk is the richest man in the world and he scoffs at Jeff Bezos
Elon Musk is currently at the top of the richest men in the world and it seems he wants to let Jeff Bezos know at all costs. The eccentric founder of Tesla in fact replied to a tweet from Bezos with theemoji of a silver medal bearing the number 2. A real mockery according to many, aimed at highlighting the overtaking of the creator of Amazon.
Elon Musk is the richest man in the world and makes fun of Jeff Bezos
The tweet in which Musk’s response appeared is related to an article published in 1999, in which Amazon’s business model was put to the shame. “Listen and keep your ears open, but don’t let anyone tell you who you are,” Bezos tweeted. “Today, Amazon is one of the most successful companies in the world and has revolutionized two completely different industries.”
Words that undoubtedly highlight the success of the e-commerce giant, which however are partly tempered by Musk’s emoji in the answers. Bezos, for his part, did not accept the provocation, but we do not doubt that he may have been bothered by the reaction of his business rival. As for his followers, the reactions were mixed.
Listen and be open, but don’t let anybody tell you who you are. This was just one of the many stories telling us all the ways we were going to fail. Today, Amazon is one of the world’s most successful companies and has revolutionized two entirely different industries. pic.twitter.com/MgMsQHwqZl

At the moment Elon Musk is the richest man on the entire planet with a stock market heritage of 222 billion dollars, against the 191 billion of the rival. For now, the two entrepreneurs are engaged in their personal space race and it seems that soon they could also start competing in the luxury electric car sector, given that Bezos has bought a self-driving startup in potential competition with Tesla.
In short, the challenge between the two billionaires continues, and it seems that both are willing to fight it by any means necessary.
