How can you get the world’s richest man’s attention? If you’d ask a certain game developer, he’d say by continuously tweeting.
Tesla CEO, SpaceX boss and currently the world’s richest man, Elon Musk responded to a tweet from a person who had continuously been tweeting to him for over 154 days.

“Dear Elon, I’m a game dev. and I am making a game about colonizing Mars with you and SpaceX in it. If you think it’s cool, all I need is the “Go ahead” to use your name and Logos. I will post this every day for a year or until I get a Yes or a No! 154 / 365,” read his final message — when Musk finally responded.
