Twitter has found a new axis for discussion as Jeff Bezos steps down as Amazon CEO. After a legendary reign that took the company to the pinnacle of success, Bezos is finally handing over his place and responsibilities. 27 years of stellar performance and effort is what the man leaves behind for his successor. And undoubtedly it is a brilliant example to follow. From now on, Andy Jassy, former cloud computing chief of the company will take the steering wheel of the company.

The Business Visionary
Amazon is a company that has left an indelible mark in the business domain that doesn’t need any further explanation. What began as a simple online marketplace for books scaled the mountains of success to emerge as the biggest corporation in the world that is worth $1.3 trillion. And behind the glorious success was a man with a vision. The vision that has manifested today is what we know as Amazon. And as the man behind the plan steps down after 27 years, it is only natural that people go down a memory lane extracting snippets of motivation and inspiration that comes with any individual who has crossed over to the side of success and growth.
As successful as Amazon is, the road was not free of hefty stones and rocks that often presented challenges. In fact, Bezos himself has been at the receiving end of criticisms regarding a variety of matters. The recent one being the ProPublica report concerning the tax payments which also directed its sharp blade of criticism at others like Warren Buffet. It can only be said that challenges and difficulties are part of the journey which he chose to take. And it cannot be denied that what he created is something that deserves applause and admiration.
Bezos will continue to be on the executive board of the company while also being its biggest shareholder. However, following the step-down, he will take a diversion from the daily management and direct his focus and attention to other projects, particularly to Blue Origin, his Aerospace company.
Twitter Bids Farewell

Here are a few responses and reactions from Twitter.
Just in case you're thinking about giving up today.
