A Japanese billionaire now has most retweeted tweet ever after offering a $923,000 prize
Maezawa, the founder of Japanese online retailer Zozo Inc, sent the tweet after his website Zozotown posted sales of 10 billion yen in its New Year’s sale. He previously gained international attention after securing a seat aboard SpaceX’s inaugural tourist flight to the moon. The mission from Elon Musk’s transportation company is expected to launch in 2023.
Maezawa’s tweet overtook a plea from Carter Wilkerson to gain enough retweets to persuade fast food chain Wendy’s to award him a year’s worth of free chicken nuggets.
