These tech giants are amongst the richest personalities in the world! They earned money by introducing new advancements in technology, which amazed the world. They continued to improvise and innovate their gigs and now they have a net worth more than that of several countries’ budgets!

Following are some of these powerful personalities who can take the whole world by storm.

ELON MUSK

Introduction

Elon Musk is a household name nowadays. CEO and Chief Engineer at SpaceX, CEO of Tesla, founder of The Boring Company, co-founder of Neuralink and OpenI. Elon Musk has revolutionized the transport industry by introducing electronic car makers, Tesla for the first time. His vision has not just limited him to roads, instead, his sky-rocketing vision came to play with the establishment of SpaceX. As of July 2021, Elon Musk stands second in the list of the richest personalities with a staggering net worth of $162.8 billion.

Musk’s Word of Mouth

Talking of influence, Elon Musk is said to be the most influential tech CEO in the world. To further illustrate, it takes just one tweet for Elon to change the world’s preferences. For instance, when Facebook’s popular messaging app Whatsapp introduced new terms and conditions, Elon Musk tweeted “Use Signal”. For those of you who don’t know, Signal is another messaging app just like Whatsapp which was not hyped previously. With that tweet, millions of users downloaded the app, and Signal saw a whopping increase in their shares. 

Elon Musk’s Tesla launched a bottle of Tequila which was priced at $250. The whole stock of the tequila was sold within few hours although there was a restriction of just two bottles per purchase. This tells about the power of Elon Musk as an influencer and word-of-mouth. He once went to Twitter to describe how much he admires the US e-commerce website, ‘Etsy’. After the tweet, the stock prices of Etsy went over the skies.

Crypto and Elon

If you have a cryptocurrency enthusiast in your circle, you must ask him about the influence of Elon Musk in crypto. One of the most important modules in cryptocurrency trading is to keep a very close watch over Musk’s Twitter account. His one tweet can pump or dump a certain coin. 

For instance, In 2019, Tesla announced its acceptance of Bitcoins as a mode of payment. Elon took the Twitter medium to make this announcement, which saw a great surge in Bitcoin prices, taking it to its all-time high of $58,000. Later, he tweeted that Tesla won’t be accepting Bitcoins anymore due to its energy consumption and threat imposed on the environment by its mining. As a reaction to this tweet, a lot of investors were disheartened and the price declined to $30,000. Another tweet that stated Elon showing support to Bitcoin miners in making their process greener took the price level over $39,000. Despite Bitcoin being the largest crypto coin in the market, Elon Musk has the power to toy with it.

JACK DORSEY

Jack Dorsey is another American entrepreneur and a tech giant. CEO of Square and CEO of Twitter are the main bullets in his portfolio. Square is a financial payments company, while Twitter is what we all know. As of July 2021, Jack’s net worth is around $13.3 billion!

Twitter Supremacy

Jack Dorsey’s influence can be translated from the power of Twitter. Previously we talked about how Elon Musk’s single tweet can prove to be a make and break for large companies, well it’s Twitter where he tweets! Twitter is a very well-known social media platform where people can share their thoughts and opinions in a very interesting form of ‘tweeting’. Not only the general audience, but the greatest of sportsmen, politicians and businessmen share their ideas through Twitter. All of these great personalities are required to abide by twitter’s terms and conditions, thus stating the power of Twitter. No one is allowed to breach the community guidelines, which includes clauses of racism, Semitism, hate speech etc.

 In January 2021, Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump’s Twitter account after he made a controversial tweet in the U.S elections which could have caused political unrest. Other notable twitter suspensions include famous Swedish Youtuber ‘PewdiePie’, British nationalist Tommy Robinson, The American Nazi party and the Chinese embassy in the US’s account. Some of these bans are permanent, while others are temporary. 

A lot of important decisions and announcements are made through Twitter. There is always something to look at on Twitter. You simply cannot ignore it.

MARK ZUCKERBERG

Mark Zuckerberg is an American philanthropist and tech giant. He is the co-founder of Facebook, a popular social networking service. Today, Mark controls Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram.

Facebook’s Power

Mark Zuckerberg is termed as the most powerful unelected man in America. He controls the largest communication applications that are used worldwide. This implies that Mark Zuckerberg has access to data from billions of the world population. Mark keeps everything in his hands. He alone can decide to design Facebook’s algorithm. So you cannot just keep him out of the game, eh? You must have noticed a lot of posts on your Facebook feed that are according to your need or cravings and they appear out of nowhere without asking for it. Well, this is no coincidence, it’s just how powerful the Facebook algorithm is. How the algorithm works is another day’s talk, but the reason it works is Mark Zuckerberg.

Facebook has very strict community guidelines and terms and conditions to make it a secure medium. The interesting part is that it vindicates no one, not even if you are the largest tech company in the world. The recent talk of the town was initiated when Facebook removed the “blue tick” of verification from Apple’s official Facebook page. Facebook had criticized Apple’s new security updates, and according to a general idea, this was the reason for blue tick detachment. However, Facebook later cleared that the Apple page owners never initiated the verification, hence the page was unverified. But was this the real reason, what do you think?

JEFF BEZOS

Former CEO of the world’s largest online store Amazon, Jeff Bezos is an American magnate and investor. Jeff currently serves as Amazon’s executive chairman and owns The Washington Post and Blue Origin. As of July 2021, Jeff Bezos’s net worth is a staggering $214.5 billion, making him the richest person in the world!

Amazon web services control half of the cloud computing industry. Amazon is an ‘everything store’, and its aims and goals are beyond being a market dominator. Jeff Bezos has a vision which he shares with no one, though he has certainly quoted several times that he wishes to colonize the outer world! According to Jeff, soon the world will not be able to fulfil the supplies he needs for Amazon, and therefore we should think to initiate life in outer space. 

Jeff as a Leader
