The view of billionaire business owners is that they’re generally super serious and focused entirely on their business and how much money it can make.

Most super-rich types don’t tend to show their human side on social media.

The likes of Elon Musk are rarely off it, and, in his case, are trying to buy it for a mere $44 billion.

However, for most billionaires, posting a funny tweet can be quite a rarity.

Here are some examples of billionaires taking over Twitter by being wacky.

Warren Buffett

As he’s 91, it’s not really surprising Warren Buffett is one of those billionaires who doesn’t typically use social media, but he did generate some attention when he tweeted a photo of himself dressed up as Walter White’s alter ego Heisenberg from Breaking Bad.

The photo has been retweeted 4,860 times so far.

Buffett’s account only has eight tweets, with the first being, “Warren is in the house.”

Not one for people who wanted to get an insight of how to become mega-rich.

Bill Gates

Bill Gates is usually very detached in his tweets, but he bought attention to a serious issue in a slightly irreverant way when he tweeted about poop.

The Microsoft owner used a slightly connotation, to bring attention to the fact that 1.5 million children die each year due to severe diarrhea.

Richard Branson

Getting caught sleeping on the job by your super-rich boss might just lead to you having to find a new job.

However, Virgin owner Richard Branson posted a tweet with a sleeping employee that went viral but quickly assured the Twitter community that the man was simply getting some needed rest while on standby. 

Shortly after Branson had gotten the media’s attention, he took it one step further.

On World Oceans Day Branson dressed up like a mermaid, with a shiny tail and everything.

An image that’s difficult to unsee.

Mark Cuban

Billionaire Shark Tank judge Mark Cuban always has always liked to have a bit of fun on Twitter.

Just look at this tweet that he sent out using a urinal while holding the NBA Championship Trophy.

Mavericks fans thought the picture was so funny that the team started selling socks with that very image on them.

John Henry

John Henry, the owner of the Boston Red Sox, tweeted out a photo of a Boston cop celebrating a David Ortiz home run.

The photo of the police officer, a massive Red Sox fan, went viral and the owner soon tweeted out a photoshopped version.
