© Reuters. Jeff Bezos Pulls An Elon Musk And Heaps Praise On Dogecoin Creator

It is routine to find Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk in the comments section of Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) co-creator Billy Markus' tweet but there's a new entrant — who also just happens to be one of the world's richest people.

Amazon.com, Inc (NASDAQ: NASDAQ:AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos had words of praise for Markus on Wednesday.

What Happened: Bezos responded to a tweet by Markus that touched on party affiliations and moderates.

Bezos said, “Seen you refer to yourself as a sh*tposter but maybe you’re mostly just a wiseposter.”

Why It Matters: Markus’ post came after Musk declared himself a Republican voter on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) after calling the Democrats a party of “division and hate.”

Bezos also interacted with a Twitter user who suggested that the Amazon founder invite Markus and him on to his yacht along with Lauren Sanchez. Sanchez is said to be Bezos’ girlfriend.

Bezos began following Markus on Twitter earlier in the month. He only follows 83 people on the social media platform and has 4.4 million followers.

Markus, who calls himself a “comedian” on Twitter has a following of 1.5 million. He follows 420 people — a number often referenced in connection with cannabis culture.

Price Action: On Wednesday, Amazon shares closed 7.2% lower at $2,142.25 in the regular session and dropped another 1.5% lower to $2,111 in the after-hours trading. At press time, DOGE traded 0.1% lower at $0.08, according to data from Benzinga Pro.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.
