The Most Magical Event In Twitter History Just Happened

Drake is a stellar 25-year-old Canadian rapper, who enjoys things like wine spritzers and $US6000 socks. T. Boone Pickens is a Texan oil billionaire, like something from a cartoon. Twitter just made their worlds crash.

Drake, in a suitably Drake moment of self-reflection, tweeted that “The first million is the hardest”. Helpful for the rest of us — apparently the dude has made some money? Are you impressed? T. Boone “Worth Over a Billion” Pickens sure isn’t, replying “The first billion is a helluva lot harder” with a mic-drop retweet.
