Tesla’s chief and billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk surpassed Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to become the world’s richest man, prompting a variety of reactions online. Musk, who is a major share holder in the electric car company Tesla, benefitted from its surging share price over the last year, news agency Reuters reported.
As per Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index, a ranking of the world’s 500 wealthiest people, Musk is worth $194.8 billion, or $9.5 billion more than Bezos.
While many on twitter congratulated Musk for the achievement, others hoped he would put the money to good use.
A Twitter account, which goes by the name Tesla Owners of Silicon Valley, also shared the news of Musk grabbing the wealthiest person on the planet title, to which he replied “How strange”. In a follow up tweet he wrote, “Well, back to work…”
His less than excited response also garnered netizens attention.
