Elon Musk has gained 17 million Twitter followers since April, when he first announced plans to buy the social media company. But there is one billionaire who still has even more followers than he does.
Follow Bill Gates On Twitter And Facebook: His First Tweet
MacKenzie will be awarded about 4% of the company, a stake worth roughly $36 billion, making her the 3rd richest woman in the world, following Alice Walton, the heiress to the fortune of Walmart Inc. And Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, the billionaire L'Oréal heiress from France who holds the first position.
Months after announcing their decision to separate, Jeff and MacKenzie took to Twitter to announce their divorce settlement, a closely watched matter of corporate governance that affects one of the world's largest and richest companies with a market capitalization of $890 billion. Both came out in support and solidarity with each other in the wake of the settlement. MacKenzie's tweet came first which is also incidentally her first and only tweet since she joined the platform this month. Her tweet was then re-tweeted by Jeff. She said, "grateful to have finished the process of dissolving my marriage to Jeff with support from each other,"
Jeff is worth at least $107 billion, based on his Amazon holdings alone. Forbes had estimated that his worth earlier in the year was $131 billion before the divorce controversy took place. In fact, the stock was slightly down for the day on Thursday, owing to the obvious change after the tweets, suggesting that investors expected a divorce settlement that left Bezos firmly in control. According to Forbes, he is still the world's richest man, followed by Bill Gates at the second position and Warren Buffet at the third.
While the exact origin of the posts starting with the phrases such as "Literally no one" and "Literally nobody" is unclear, first tweets utilizing the phrasal template can be traced to at least September 1st, 2018. On September 2nd, 2018, Twitter user @greenlight posted one of the earliest viral posts following the format in which he described an unprovoked Spooktober themed speech from a female "with no personality". The tweet gained over 12,300 retweets and 64,300 likes in five months.
