People wasted no time in drawing conclusions about Amazon being down, as the majority them are seen relating it to its former CEO Jeff Bezos stepping down from his role ahead of the upcoming spaceflight.
One joked, “@JeffBezos been out of Amazon for like 3 days and everything’s already down smh #amazondown”
Another tweted, “#amazondown I bet Jeff Bezos was so mad he didn’t go to space first so he shut down Amazon.”
Another tweeted, “This what happens when Jeff Bezos wants to go to space and steps down Jeff tell them you was playing when you stepped down I need my Amazon fix #amazondown”
When is he going to space?
The founder of Amazon is all set to go to space on July 20 with the rocket ship made by his start up Blue Origin. His spaceflight comes only 15 days after he stepped down from his role as the CEO of Amazon.
He will accompanied by his brother Mark Bezos, 82-year-old flight instructor Wally Funk and the winner of the month-long auction.
Blue Origins was founded by Bezos in 2000. More than a dozen test flights are said to have been conducted with no one on board in its facilities in rural Texas.
