What would Steve Jobs Tweet?

What would Steve Jobs Tweet?

Summary: One of Bill Gates' New Years resolutions must have been to starting Tweeting. Because he just did.


It's official, the Bill Gates is on Twitter.

He had about 241 followers after being online for three hours and currently has about 118k followers – about nine hours since his maiden post. Expect that number to rocket to over a million by the morning. (Notice that shiny "verified account" banner at the top? Yeah, it's been confirmed as the real deal.)

His maiden tweet? Aptly "Hello World." followed by "Hard at work on my foundation letter - publishing on 1/25." Oh, and he uses the Web interface not some super-secret, ninja Twitter client for Windows Mobile 7 or anything cool like that.

I'm on board for a follow, after all the man founded Microsoft for crying out loud.

Now if only Steve Jobs would join the Twitter revolution and start using his account. I could see his maiden post right now:

You'll never guess what I'm holding in my hands *right now* :)

  • HINT: Bill Gates is retired, Steve Jobs is not.

    Steve Jobs is working hard and does not have time to waste. Also he probably has a REAL social life and is not pathetic enough to waste his personal time tweeting.

    Johnny Ives just brought in the latest prototype for the
    iSlab.... It's so damn ugly, I expelled my iTofu out of my nose!

    I hope he does get over a million followers and more, then he can outdo Ashton Kutcher.

  • Twitter revolution?

    Why do people refer to Twitter as a revolution? It's by
    far the most worthless social networking site ever to hit
    the scene. I'm so glad that I just don't "get it".
  • I don't think he would have the time

    Busy people don't have time for things like this.
