One of the great things about social media, is that anyone can connect with others from around the world, regardless of background or status.
Imagine just tweeting a random thought and having one of the country’s richest men respond to you. If this has ever happened to you, then consider yourself comparable to the rapper, Drake.
The Canadian-born rapper, who can brag about his multi-platium status, recently tweeted about his ambitions to be a billionaire. He was shocked to see billionaire oil tycoon and avid sport enthusiast, T. Boone Pickens respond.
The exchange went like this:
The first million is the hardest.— Drizzy (@Drake) May 30, 2012
Perhaps the old adage of throwing a rope back (advice-wise that is) once you’ve made it over the wall is playing out in digital form.
Now that Drake and Pickens are BFFs on Twitter, maybe they can share some financial tips together. Lord knows Drake could use some legal advice to avoid those costly lawsuits.
