Conversation between millionaires on Twitter. Two of the richest people in the world, Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos , have promoted an initiative and shared their ideas and a possible solution to the problem of homelessness in various cities in the United States.
Elon Musk, the new top shareholder of Twitter, suggested turning the headquarters of the American company, located in the city of San Francisco, into a shelter for the homeless.

The Tesla founder published a poll on the idea on Saturday, saying “nobody shows up anyway,” an apparent reference to the company’s policy of allowing employees the option to work remotely.
Billionaire Jeff Bezos responded to this proposal , who attached a report on a homeless shelter attached to an office building of his company Amazon, which serves more than a thousand family members a year. He noted that a portion of Twitter’s facilities could be earmarked for this idea, “which would make things easier for employees who want to volunteer.” Musk called the Amazon founder’s suggestion a “great idea.”

More than a million people participated in the survey that Musk published on his Twitter account (in which he has more than 81 million followers), in which 91% of the participants voted in favor and in agreement with this initiative.

A big social problem in San Francisco
The city where many Silicon Valley workers live faces a serious problem: it cannot grow any more and there are more and more people who want to enter it.
Strong economic growth in recent years has created hundreds of thousands of new jobs, but together with severe restrictions on construction, it has led to an extreme shortage of housing, causing a significant increase in the cost of rents.
