Jeff Bezos Calls Out Musk’s Ties to China and $44B Twitter Buyout Deal

Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder and Executive Chair, has spoken up on Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. Bezos, in a tweet sent out April 25, 2022, inquires as to whether or not Elon and Tesla’s ties to China could give the adversarial government some leverage to control speech on Twitter.

I think this is a bit of an odd thing for Jeff Bezos to call out about Musk when Amazon’s business is arguably more so dependent on China (we pull the stats in this video showing how many of the top Amazon sellers are China based). If there was a foreign government to call out for abusing Twitter’s platform, most people would point to Saudi Arabia. Something tells me Bezos will be hesitant to call out the Saudi government any time soon…
