Keyhole, a real-time social media analytics website, provides a closer look at the Apple Support account. The data shows that the account, and related tweets, have already generated over 124 million impressions, with 44.6% of users viewing the tweets from an iPhone. 77% of the account's followers are male.

Apple joins a growing number of companies, ranging from retailers to banks, that provide customer service on Twitter in 140 characters or less. A customer can send a tweet to @AppleSupport, and an Apple Advisor will typically reply with a generic message that requests the user send more details via Direct Message.

The account will respond to customer inquiries every day between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. Pacific, and it will also share tips, tricks, and tutorials related to Apple products and services. Apple support continues to be available on the web, or by phone, email, or scheduling a Genius Bar appointment.

Must be different in different parts of the world. I only ever called apple support the once, left my number, and within five minutes , I was called back, two problems and a apple care plus sorted, all helpfully and with humour.

I really have nothing but praise for the way my stupidity was eased.

It would be equally, if not more fascinating to see what's trending for support. IE - what are people asking for help with?

You think they'll reprogram IOS and ship you a personal version? That's not why this thing is there, though they probably noted your disapproval anyway.
