There is a different kind of tussle on Twitter between two of the world’s biggest rich businessmen – Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos. Tesla co-founder Musk and Amazon founder Bezos have been seen targeting each other on this social media platform for some time now.
Bezos tweeted an image predicting Amazon’s destruction
Now let’s take the recent thing. Late in the evening on October 11, Bezos made a tweet. In it, he had inserted the image of an article published in the famous business magazine Barons in 1999. His e-commerce company Amazon was strongly criticized in that article and predicted its ruin.
Musk put an emoji of ‘number two’ i.e. silver medal in the tweet
Musk also made a tweet in response to that tweet by Bezos. In it, he put an emoji of ‘number two’ i.e. silver medal. His meaning was clear as glass. Musk has labeled Bezos as being second. Actually, Amazon’s Bezos is second only to Musk in the list of world’s riches.
Bezos No. 2, Musk tops with net worth of $190.8 billion
Last week, the gap between the net worth of two of the world’s richest people widened. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, Bezos is number 2 with a net worth of $190.8 billion. The valuation of Musk’s rocket company SpaceX is skyrocketing. With this, he remains at number one with a net worth of $222 billion.
Musk calls Amazon’s space program ‘fake’
In the midst of the competition to take the space industry to new heights, the tweeter between the two is intensifying. Bezos’s Blue Origin is challenging the US government’s contract to Musk’s SpaceX to develop technology to take people to the moon. Musk had called the co-founder of the e-commerce company a ‘copycat’ on Twitter some time ago regarding Amazon’s space program.
Complaint against Musk and his companies for breaking the rules
In a notice to US regulators, the satellite subsidiary of Amazon accused Musk and his companies of breaking the rules in a cringe that “rules are for other people”. It is a different matter that similar allegations of breaking the rules related to competition are against Amazon in India, which is being investigated by the Competition Commission of India.
‘Amazon did not fail, one of the most successful companies in the world’
Bezos wrote in a tweet late on Sunday, ‘Listen and be ready to understand, but don’t let anyone decide what you are. This is one of the many stories in which it was being said that we would fail miserably. Today Amazon is one of the most successful companies in the world and has completely transformed two completely different industries.
Musk’s SpaceX costs nearly four times that of Bezos’ Blue Origin
According to the Bloomberg Wealth Index, 50-year-old Musk’s net worth jumped by nearly $9 billion on Friday. In fact, in an agreement on that day, investors had put the price of SpaceX more than $ 100 billion. The value of this company of Musk is almost four times that of 57-year-old Bezos’s Blue Origin.
