Bill Gates, the co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, and his wife Melinda Gates announced their divorce on Monday.

"Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives," they tweeted, adding, "but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives," the couple said in a joint statement on Twitter.

However, they added that they will continue working for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation together. They have also asked for privacy for their family.

Although the comments feature on Bill Gates' tweet was disabled, many people started sharing his post from his official Twitter handle, and started reacting to it.

Someone pointed out that Bill Gates asked for 'privacy' by making the announcement to his 55 million followers on Twitter.

Another user posted a meme regarding Bill and Melinda Gates' divorce.

Another joked that one of the world's top billionaires is now single and available.
