Elon Musk demanded Amazon’s destruction. The trigger is a book that the world’s largest online retailer apparently did not want to sell. Its content fits the lockdown criticism of the Tesla boss.
Elon Musk’s hugely announced Twitter break lasted just two days. A Twitter post by a book author apparently got the Tesla founder into such a rage that he promptly picked up the smartphone again. After the author said Amazon refused to sell its book on the corona pandemic, Musk launched a general attack against the world’s largest online retailer.
“It is time to split up Amazon. Monopolies are wrong!” Wrote the 48-year-old. Musk was outraged. “This is crazy,” he wrote, directly targeting Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’s Twitter account. He had only announced on Tuesday that he wanted to stay away from Twitter “for a while”.
At the end of April, Musk had asked people to be given “their goddamn freedom” and even called the lockdown measures “fascist”. In addition, the tech billionaires Musk and Bezos are rivals in some business areas, they mainly compete with their space companies SpaceX and Blue Origin.
