Billionaires Hold Twitter Pissing Contest Over Their Rockets

Even when you have more money than God, sometimes it's hard not to sweat the small stuff. After his space company Blue Origin successfully landed a rocket on Earth, Jeff Bezos (net worth $58.5 billion) took to Twitter to boast about his rocket, sending his first ever tweet, and drawing the attention of rival rocketeer Elon Musk (net worth $12 billion). 

It seems Musk was piqued at the notion that the accomplishments of his own private space company, SpaceX, don't measure up. 

Musk continued to tweet petulantly about his own phallic metaphor. 

[jump] But we all know that the true measure of a CEO is revealed by his press photos from talks. 

Exhibit A: Elon Musk

Exhibit B: Jeff Bezos

Sorry Elon, but it looks like Jeff's got you beat.
