Apple CEO Tim Cook Joins Twitter, First Tweet About Visiting Palo Alto Apple Retail Stores

Apple CEO Tim Cook has apparently joined Twitter with the username @tim_cook, with fellow Apple executive Phil Schiller retweeting him as a means of verification. The account was first created back in July, but today saw Cook's first tweet.


Cook's bio on the site reads "CEO Apple, Fan of Auburn football and Duke basketball". Cook is an alumnus of both Auburn and Duke. His first tweet reads, "Visited Retail Stores in Palo Alto today. Seeing so many happy customers reminds us of why we do what we do."

Tim came by the Stanford Store too

Tim came by the Stanford store about 9am this morning and said hello to everyone and walked around the store and talked to customers. He was very friendly to me and other customers. He asked what color I was getting and I said I wanted gold and joked about how finding real gold was probably easier and he laughed really hard and then said that they were working on making more gold very soon. Overall, a great day with getting my new iPhone 5s and also meeting Tim Cook.
