Tesla CEO Musk calls Jeff Bezos a copycat on TwitterTesla Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Elon Musk took to Twitter to call Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos a “copycat” after Bezos announced plans to launch a new satellite-based broadband service.

“In response to an article from the MIT Technology Review that announced Amazon’s plans to launch more than 3,000 internet-providing satellites, Musk called Bezos a ‘copycat’, with the ‘cat’ portion of the word replaced with a cat emoji,” the CNBC reported late on Wednesday.

The Amazon CEO has also hired a SpaceX executive, Rajeev Badyal, to run the Amazon’s satellite project after he was fired by Musk.
