SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk trolled Amazon founder Jeff Bezos by commenting on his post on Twitter.
On social media, Bezos recalled the cover of Barron’s, which came out in May 1999 with the headline Amazon.bomb. The article predicted Amazon’s failure. “Listen and be open, but don’t let anyone tell you who you are. This was just one of many stories telling us all the ways we could have failed. Today Amazon is one of the most successful companies in the world, which has revolutionized two completely different industries, ”wrote the billionaire.
To this, Elon Musk responded with a laconic message, sending a smiley in the form of a silver medal for second place.
Musk’s fortune surpassed the $ 200 billion mark at the end of September, amid rising Tesla shares. In addition, the valuation of space company SpaceX has surpassed $ 100 billion after existing investors announced the sale of their shares.
As a result, this not only strengthened Musk as the richest man in the world, but also widened the gap between him and the second-ranked Bezos. Currently, the personal fortune of the Tesla founder is estimated at $ 222 billion, and the capital of the Amazon founder is at $ 191 billion.
