Ironic, Money, and Tumblr: erin i you literally are a billionaire literally it is not ironic in any way Follow you weren't called a billionaire until you were... a billionaire if you think it's is a negative label, maybe it's because it means that you're hoarding money and resources from the rest of the world Elon Musk O Delonmusk Replying to blake,kistler @88CWorld ronically, the "billionaire label, when used by media, is almost always meant to devalue & denigrate the subject. I wasnt called that until my companies got to a certain size, but reality is that I still do the same science & engineeing as before. Just the scale has changed. 0:03 AM-10 Jul 2018 Elon Musk @elonmusk Following Replying to Geehouls No, it means I created jobs for 50,000 people directly and, through parts suppliers & supporting professions, 250,000 people indirectly, thus supporting half a million families.

 you literally are a billionaire
 literally
 it is not ironic in any way
 Follow
 you weren't called a billionaire until you
 were... a billionaire
 if you think it's is a negative label,
 maybe it's because it means that you're
 hoarding money and resources from the
 rest of the world

 ronically, the "billionaire label, when used by media, is almost always
 meant to devalue & denigrate the subject. I wasnt called that until my
 companies got to a certain size, but reality is that I still do the same science
