Warren Buffett may be America’s wealthiest technophobe, but now the Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO can discuss how he doesn’t know how to check his voice mail in a whole new way: on Twitter.
The megabillionaire made his social media debut Thursday, issuing his first-ever tweet at 9:20 a.m. PT: “Warren is in the house.” Though he has not, as of this writing, followed it up with any further 140-character bits of wisdom, his initial declaration was retweeted almost 13,000 times within an hour of going live.
Buffett is following exactly no one, but he already has 75,000 … no wait, 80,000 … now it’s 282,536 followers and counting. That’s some return on investment. [Source]
