Musk Confesses Admiration For One Detroit Rival
Elon Musk doesn’t mince words. He speaks his mind, for better or worse. As the CEO of the world’s most valuable automaker, Musk is in a position to do a seemingly endless number of things, among them pointing out rivals’ faults. He also offers praise when it’s due. Late last week, Musk wrote the following on Twitter: “Tesla & Ford are the only American carmakers not to have gone bankrupt out of 1000’s of car startups. Prototypes are easy, production is hard & being cash flow positive is excruciating.”
Some followers described these words as “arrogant” and that he has a “low self-esteem,” but a certain other big name follower had a very different one-word response.
Ford CEO Jim Farley simply retweeted several hours later: “Respect.”
