Jeff Bezos took to his Twitter account on Sunday to write about one of the highest-ranking series on Netflix, Squid Game. The founder of Amazon applauded the online streaming platform for its 'internationalization strategy' for turning non-English shows into hits across the globe. Squid Game has received heaps of love and praise and has ranked number one in about 90 countries within about 10 days. Jeff Bezos headed to Twitter to laud Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos and the Chief Executive Officer of Netflix, Reed Hastings. He mentioned that the duo and the entire team at Netflix 'get it right so often'. He also mentioned that their 'internationalization strategy' is not an easy one, but they 'make it work'. He called it 'impressive and inspiring' as he continued to say that he couldn't wait to watch Squid Game. He tweeted, "@ReedHastings and Ted Sarandos and the team at @Netflix get it right so often. Their internationalization strategy isn’t easy, and they’re making it work. Impressive and inspiring. (And I can’t wait to watch the show.)."

Twitter users were surprised by the tweet and began to wonder what the hidden meaning behind it was. An individual mentioned that something was up and Bezos replied to his tweet. He clarified that nothing was amiss, and he was simply admiring the streaming platform. He wrote, "No, just simple admiration."
