Dogecoin And Bezos
Former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos follows 83 people on Twitter. One of them is the co-founder of Dogecoin, Billy Markus. The other day the founder of the world’s biggest money suck, decided that he had enough free time on his hands to get in on what Billy Markus was up to on the cesspool that is Twitter.
Seen you refer to yourself as a sh*tposter but maybe you’re mostly just a wiseposter.

The currently third-richest man in the world responded to Billy Markus’ not so unobvious defense of his pal Elon Musk. Musk had earlier trolled Twitter saying he was becoming a Republican because it was a slow news day.
Just want to note how amazing the timeline we are in right now: the first and third richest men in the world follow the co-founder of Dogecoin, a crypto based on a Shiba Inu meme. Let that sink in.
Bezos’ Thoughts On Crypto
Bezos retired from Amazon last year amid threats from congress. After taking a stroll into space just because he could, he’s clearly back now and bored. Is crypto next?
So far, Bezos hasn’t given any indication that he owns crypto. He hasn’t even spoken about it publicly. As far as his Twitter followers, his only other Web3-related follow is Marc Andreesen of a16z.
Maybe he just likes Markus’ libertarian vibes. Who knows. For what it’s worth, the current CEO told Andrew Ross Sorkin from CNBC that he thinks is “awesome,” despite the fact that he doesn’t own any Bitcoin or NFTs.
