Billionaire rivalry: Musk taunts Bezos on Twitter

Elon Musk rubbed Jeff Bezos ‘nose into Jeff Bezos’ nose that he thinks he’s more successful. After Amazon founder Bezos praised his own career on Twitter, the Tesla boss countered without comment on Monday with the picture of a silver medal. Musk is currently the clear number 1 in the billionaires ranking of the financial service Bloomberg with 222 billion dollars (192 billion euros). Bezos follows with 191 billion. For both, wealth is based on the value of their stock holdings.

The two billionaires are rivals not only in the rich rankings, but above all in the space business. Bezos’ space company Blue Origin recently sued Musk’s company SpaceX against the award of the US government contract for a spacecraft to land on the moon. Musk (50) teased because of that: “You can’t complain to the moon, no matter how good the lawyers are,” he said at a conference in September.

Bezos (57) posted an article in the US business paper “Barron’s” from 1999 on Twitter on Sunday evening, in which Amazon and Bezos were predicted to fail quickly. “Don’t let anyone tell you who you are,” he concluded.

Most recently, there have been drastic allegations that Blue Origin has a “toxic” corporate culture that has slowed the company’s progress and made it difficult to compete with SpaceX. They were collected from several current and former employees.
