As noted by 9to5mac, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller has a Twitter account. You can follow him as @pschiller. What’s interesting is that I’ve been personally following this account for quite some time now (three months, I believe), and I thought it was fake – like the popular @CEOSteveJobs one. Schiller’s account, however, is now verified so yeah, he’s the real Schiller.
Senior Vice President of iPhone Software Scott Forstall joined Twitter in July, but never tweeted. His account is verified as well, and gained thousands of followers without posting a single message. In his Twitter bio Schiller wrote he loves “Apple, Sports, Cars, Science, Rock & Roll”, and he actually replies to people making app recommendations and such. He also posts pictures taken with Instagram.
This is really cool. Could Twitter be Apple’s next thing for consumer communication? We hope so. [via 9to5mac]
