T. Boone Pickens may be the coolest billionaire on Twitter.

The 84-year-old Texas oil tycoon responded to a tweet from rapper Drake last night with a tweet of his own. But what's memorable about the Twitter interaction is not that Pickens responded, but that he trumped the 25-year-old rapper.

Pickens strayed from his usual subject matter and re-tweeted Drake's message about becoming a millionaire with an observation of his own.

Well played, Pickens.

Drake had no choice but to acknowledge the one-up.

More than 8,200 Twitter users re-tweeted the exchange between the unlikely pair, according to Mashable.

Oddly, Pickens does not follow Drake, so why he chose to respond to the rapper is anyone's guess.

Check out the gallery below to see Twitter reactions to the back-and-forth between Pickens and Drake.
