Elon Musk Goes To WAR With Microsoft

Elon Musk has been in a longtime Feud with Bill Gates.

The eccentric billionaire previously poked fun at Gates on Twitter, and it was later revealed that Musk didn’t like the fact that Bill Gates was shorting Tesla’s stock.

Musk pointed out Gates’ weight and health, asking users why anyone would ever trust this man with their health—he has never been a fan of Bill Gates.

Now we are seeing another conflict brewing that involves the company Gates founded—Microsoft.

Microsoft recently dropped Twitter from its advertising platform and refuses to pay Twitter’s API fees for access to Twitter’s data.

According to Musk, access to the API will start at $42,000/per month, and he announced intentions to sue Microsoft in a recent tweet:

Forbes reports:

From April 25, Microsoft Digital Marketing Center users will no longer be able to access their Twitter feeds, make or schedule new posts from its “Smart Campaigns” tool, the company said in a notice, although access to Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn will continue to remain available.


CNBC adds:

Musk’s threat is the latest indication that data ownership is quickly becoming a fraught battleground in the generative AI rush.

Big Tech companies are working to develop cutting-edge AI models like OpenAI’s GPT, and data owners are seeking to stop them or charge for use of their content.

Microsoft develops its own so-called large language models (LLMs) and sells access to OpenAI’s models.

Microsoft invested $10 billion in OpenAI last year in an unusually structured deal.
