PayPal and Palatir cofounder Peter Thiel is a legendary entrepreneur with a nose for investment. But when it comes to Twitter, it seems like all he smells is weed.
“Twitter is hard to evaluate,” Thiel said on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday. “They have a lot of potential. It’s a horribly mismanaged company, probably a lot of pot-smoking going on there."
But if Twitter CEO Dick Costolo was bothered by the potshot, he didn't let it show. He responded with the following tweet:
@goldman working my way through a giant bag of Doritos. I'll catch up with you later.

Costolo was responding specifically to former Twitter vice president Jason Goldman, who cracked a joke about the floating libertarian sea colony Thiel hopes to create.
Thiel also took on Uber and Apple. See his full remarks in the clip above.
