On Monday, Bezos shared a series of tweets that said China might gain influence over Twitter once the acquisition is complete.
“Did the Chinese government just gain a bit of leverage over the town square?” Bezos wrote, hinting at Musk’s business links to China. In 2018, the Tesla CEO established a factory in Shanghai, and the company heavily relies on Chinese firms to supply the materials that go into its batteries.
Bezos’ sentiments are the latest in a long-running feud between the two billionaires.
The two are the world’s richest and second richest people and both have their own aeronautics companies, SpaceX and Blue Origin, respectively.
They have also gone head to head with their space ambitions over the years.
Last year, SpaceX won a $2.9bn contract for NASA’s Human Landing System program to facilitate two manned missions to the moon. This program is in charge of delivering astronauts to the moon’s surface for the agency’s planned Artemis missions.
