Last month, Jeff Bezos became the richest man in the world. His reign, however, was short lived and Bill Gates quickly bested him to regain his position as the world’s richest man. This week, Bill Gates beat Bezos again, but this time, it was a different battle.

Gates is already on Facebook and has been on Twitter since June 2009. Gates also has a personal blog where he shares a variety of content, from book recommendations to a 360-degree video of himself interviewing former U.S. President Jimmy Carter.

About 3 weeks ago, Jeff Bezos was the richest man on Instagram. Now that Bill Gates has also joined Instagram, he commands that title as well.

Gates’ Instagram handle is @thisisbillgates. His first post came from his location in Tanzania, where he was volunteering on behalf of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

He wrote,

“Hello from Tanzania, Instagram! I just had a great lunch with some amazing kids at Kicheba Primary School in Muheza and met Upendo Mwingira, a remarkable physician who has dedicated her career to fighting neglected tropical diseases. Melinda and I have been coming to Tanzania for many years now. I always love seeing how much progress the country has made to improve health and provide opportunity. Plus, the scenery is stunning. Whenever I travel to places like this, I wish others could come along and meet the people I get to meet. I have no doubt it would leave them as optimistic as I am about progress happening around the world. I’ll be sharing photos from my adventures here on Instagram, and I hope you’ll follow along.”

Bezos joined Instagram about 3 weeks ago and has just over 30,000 followers while Bill Gates has 148,000 followers in just 2 days.

 

It looks like these billionaires are in for a battle of popularity as well.
