In 1999, Barron's magazine ran a cover storey headlined "Amazon.bomb," predicting that Amazon's stock price would plummet and that the true winners of the Internet boom would be "firms that sell their own products directly." Bezos sent an image of the magazine's cover to his Twitter account, along with an inspirational message. Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, replied with a silver medal emoji to the tweet.
