Bill Gates, Microsoft Co-Founder has started Twitter Account @billgates.
Within 18 hours from his first tweet, he got more than 182K followers and listed in 5K lists.
Twitter was down for few minutes today. This mass following of Bill Gates may be reason for this downtime.
His account was verified by twitter to make sure it is from real Bill Gates.
His first tweet was "Hello World." Hard at work on my foundation letter - publishing on 1/25"
My first tweet for him is "Why you are here (twitter) instead of using/developing any Microsoft product for doing microblogging?"
I wanted to ask this question because during his previous Interview he mentioned that he never used iPhone.
It seems the background of his twitter profile resembles MAC design. You can share your comments about the background design.
It seems his Twitter follower count is growing very rapidly comparing to the Google CEO ericschmidt
