Elon Musk to Jeff Bezos: You’re a copycat

So I build a rocket, and then this other guy comes along and builds a rocket. Then I launch satellites, and he launches satellites too. Can you believe that?

One day, you might be telling your grandson that the great satellite broadband race of the 21st century began with a cat emoji. 

On Wednesday, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk called Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos a “copycat” (with the “cat” bit supplanted with a cat emoji) on Twitter, pointing to news of Amazon planning to launch a satellite-powered broadband service. 

SpaceX announced plans for a similar project back in 2015, and other companies, including Facebook, are planning something of the sort as well.  

The Musk-Bezos feud has been going on for a while, with Musk taunting Bezos about the size of his rockets back in 2015. Alongside Amazon, Bezos is also the founder of spaceflight company Blue Origin, which is a competitor to SpaceX. 

In this particular case, Musk is clearly ahead by a couple of years. But the “copycat” assertion will truly be solidified only if Bezos drops his own rap track
