Elon Musk doesn’t like monopolies. He also appears to not like Amazon, if his latest tweets, reported on by Bloomberg News, are anything to go by. They included his declaration that it’s “time to break up Amazon.”

“Monopolies are wrong,” Musk tweeted while tagging Bezos, the world’s wealthiest man. Musk’s post came in response to a tweet from a writer who said his book titled “Unreported Truths About COVID-19 and The Lockdown” was being removed from Amazon’s Kindle publishing division for violating unspecified guidelines. With more than 35 million followers, Musk is a prolific tweeter. He has been criticized in the past for his posts on various subjects ranging from the coronavirus outbreak to Tesla stock. Amazon didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Amazon is great for people that live far away from a shop, as well as to find good offers and user’s comments and reviews about products. Even more, local stores on places where there is not much competition or competition at all when being the only shop around, usually abuse customers. So, here we are! Having said that, competition is good.

    “On the other hand he is a nutcase”

    Yes indeed, what was it that he named his kid?

    I too do not shop Amazon.

    On one hand I agree with Musk completely on this. I do not shop Amazon because it has gotten so big, so powerful, so omnipotent, that it is harming the US, and much of the world economy. Literally small town main streets, malls, and long lasting stores are folding leaving thousands out of work.

    On the other hand he is a nutcase and I don’t like to be seen agreeing with him.
