When two billionaires are in the news, one may wonder what the real deal is, as Elon Musk, and Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, seems to be trading with words.
Elon Musk who has a history of being outspoken on social media, is the chief executive officer of Telsa, a company which is mostly involved in making of electric cars, and solar panels, with his most recent innovation, the ‘solar roofing sheets’. According to research, Elon has a net worth of 68.3 billion USD
Earlier on, Elon Musk has downplayed the dangers of the current pandemic, saying the death rate resulting from the virus, may have been over counted and lockdowns may not have been necessary, something Bill Gates didn’t find funny as he advised him to focus more on his area of specialties rather than interfering on what he has little knowledge about.
“He’s not much involved in drugs. He makes great electricity cars. And his rockets work well. So he’s allowed to say these things. I hope that he doesn’t confuse areas he’s not involved in too much.” Bill Gate said.
Elon Musk responded indirectly to the comment by Gates with a hilarious tweet on his official twitter handle; “The rumor that Bill Gates and I are lovers is completely untrue.”
This is not the first time Elon has taken a swipe at Gates, as it was rumored that Gate got a Porsche car over his electric vehicle in February this year.
