Tim Cook posts his first tweet on launch day.
How’s this for a #followfriday? Apple CEO Tim Cook posted his first tweet ever yesterday around 2:20 p.m. CDT. Even though Cook joined the Twitter-verse earlier this year, he has never posted a tweet. Cook’s first tweet read, “Visited Retail Stores in Palo Alto today. Seeing so many happy customers reminds us of why we do what we do.” This statement, of course, coming from him the day of Apple’s latest iPhone launch.
Cook’s bi-line states, “CEO Apple, Fan of Auburn football and Duke basketball.” The CEO has 138,872 followers as of the posting of this article and he’s currently following 11 people on his own. Some of the Twitter users Cook is following include, Anderson Cooper (@andersoncooper), Phil Schiller (@pschiller), Eddy Cue (@cue) and Jimmy Fallon (@jimmyfallon). It will be interesting to see how he uses his Twitter account – if he uses it purely for personal use or to help market Apple.
