Eccentric businessman and billionaire Elon Musk is constantly finding ways to stay up to date. Although Elon Musk seems to be doing very well at PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla and Boring Company, he also has time to be quite open on social media platforms like Twitter.
Just a few weeks ago, he denied rumors that he was seeking the position of Apple CEO from Tim Cook in a very public way. Now he is looking for the recently retired and former CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos.
In fact, the problem dates back to when NASA awarded a $ 2,9 billion contract to Musk SpaceX for a manned lunar mission.
So then Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos made a counter-offer to the US space agency with an offer from Blue Origin.
This offer, however, was rejected by NASA within a few days.
So he seems to have gone crazy with his defeat and is now urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reject SpaceX's plans to develop and launch a network. Starlink second generation claiming that these plans are too broad, for-profit and violate FCC rules.
Musk obviously did not stay very happy with this claim and started "telling" it to the former CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, tweeting the following:
Turns out Besos retired in order to pursue a full-time job filing lawsuits against SpaceX…

Bezos resigned as CEO of Amazon in early July and was succeeded by Andy Jassy. Musk's tweet clearly suggests that Bezos left Amazon to have more time to cause problems on SpaceX.
It is important to note that Amazon has just filed a formal complaint with the FCC but has not actually filed a lawsuit. It will be interesting to see how the whole thing unfolds, but you can be sure that Musk's Twitter tweet will trigger chain updates.
