T. Boone Pickens is an 84-year-old former corporate raider turned alternative energy activist. Drake is 25-year-old ‘Degrassi’ alum turned rapper who only lives once. Presumably they have nothing in common, except for big bank accounts. That’s what makes this Twitter exchange on Wednesday night one of the greatest repartees in the history of tweeting.
Drake begins with some braggadocio:
The first million is the hardest.

Pickens responds with some expert-level trolling:
The first billion is a helluva lot harder RT @Drake: The first million is the hardest.

Drake realizes he’s been bested:
@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy.
