After Sour Note With Analysts, Musk Tweets a Sweet Message

Why Elon Musk and Warren Buffett Are Suddenly Trolling Each Other Over See's Candies

Where did the idea for a candy company originate?

He went on to assure he's "super super serious" and polled followers on the candy they'd want.

Is Elon Musk Really Starting A Candy Company? He did, however, note that this project is "going to be awesome".

According to CNN, the idea for the candy company stems from a feud between Musk and his fellow billionaire Warren Buffet.

In an email to employees, Elon Musk said Tesla employees will need to send HR a note affirming the character of the contractor, or else that person will be denied access to Tesla's facilities. Moats, a competitive buffer between one's business and the rest of the competition, have historically been used by Warren Buffet. If your only defense against invading armies is a moat, you will not last long.

Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway owns See's sweets, was responding to a shareholder's question about whether he agreed with Musk's views about so-called economic "moats," a term Buffett coined in a 1999 Fortune article referring to a company's wide competitive advantages.

Buffett responded over the weekend by saying that moats are still working for certain companies, despite technological advancements. "And Elon may turn things upside down in some areas", Buffett said. "I don't think he'd want to take us on in candy", he said.

Yes, that's right. Musk posted on his Twitter page in the wee hours of Sunday morning that the supposed candy company is "going to be amazing", even dismissing any notion that this might be one of his occasional attempts of humour.

As IFLScience were quick to note, a cyborg dragon would be something requiring mechanical body parts as well as organic ones, so if Musk really were to devise this dragon there would need to be organic material in it, which could prove hard.

However, while all that has been largely technology related, now Musk has taken interest in the food industry.
