People express disbelief as Elon Musk reclaims title of world’s richest person amid Twitter rebrand

eople are expressing their disbelief over Elon Musk reclaiming his title as the world’s richest person just hours after launching his latest Twitter rebrand.

On 24 July, Forbes revealed that Musk was back in the number spot on the magazine’s real-time billionaires list. According to Forbes’ calculations, Musk’s net worth gained another $4.1bn on Monday, bringing him up to a total net worth of $240.7bn. The publication notes that this increase in his net worth came after Tesla’s stock climbed by more than 2.5 per cent on Monday morning.
