Apple CEO Tim Cook is now on Twitter

Apple CEO Tim Cook is officially on Twitter. Cook published his first tweet this afternoon through his account @tim_cook to celebrate the launch of the new iPhone as well as thank the Apple customers who waited in line for it. Cook is one of many high-profile CEOs to join the social network this week. Others include Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and Dell CEO Michael Dell.
 
According to Forbes, less than a third of top American CEOs are on social media. Only 32% of America’s top CEOs have an account on a social network while 68% have no social presence at all. This lack of social media usage limits CEOs’ opportunities to interact with fans worldwide.
