Jeff Bezos Twitter

© Provided by Mashable Twitter thinks it knows why Jeff Bezos stepped down as Amazon CEO

The latest tweets from @jeffbezos.

  • On Twitter, the army has defended worker conditions and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and has even gone after the company's biggest critics like Bernie Sanders, the liberal senator from Vermont.
  • We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.
  • 5 hours ago  It's all, you know, 'What a great guy,' and 'Jeff Bezos is a genius.' We suck up to power, and we hurt those below us. I can't think of anything more dishonorable than that,' he added.

By now, you've probably read all the headlines and maybe even a few news stories about Jeff Bezos stepping down from his throne as CEO of Amazon to serve as its executive chairman instead.

Bezos released a letter explaining the move that I retained absolutely none of — mostly because I got bored halfway through. In it, he mentions that as executive chair, he'll 'stay engaged in important Amazon initiatives' and intends 'to focus [his] energies and attention on new products and early initiatives.'

Of course, he left out the only tidbit of information I was interested in; the reason I read the letter to begin with: an explanation as to why he decided to make the switch.

But have no fear because that's what social media is for: spewing absolute nonsense in 280 characters or less with no repercussions (for the most part).

The minute Bezos dropped the news, people on Twitter immediately made their baseless conspiracy theories known.

And while we don't have a final answer as to why Bezos made the move, we do have some pretty insane (okay, mostly silly) theories to fall back on in the meantime.

Believable because Bezos was probably bullied in high school (same, Jeff, same).

Jeff Bezos stepped down because I told him I was going to give him the worst wet willy of his LIFE if he didn’t

An 'MGM stonks movie' starring Jeff Bezos sounds very on brand for 2021. It better be included with Prime Video.

Jeff, if you're reading this: Feel free to reach out to me to confirm or deny any of these theories. Until then, I'm going to keep thinking 'bout how you left out my girl MacKenzie in your bye-bye note.
