Apple launches an official Twitter account

Apple Twitter Account

Apple has launched an official Twitter account on Friday. With @Apple, the company now has yet another channel for releasing important announcements and promoting products and events to the public.

The new Twitter account doesn’t come off as much of a surprise. Under Tim Cook’s reign, Apple has become a significantly more transparent company, looking to reach out to as many customers (new and current) as possible.

Twitter has already went through the process of verifying the account, as noted by the blue check mark, so it’s no hoax; it’s the real deal.

Earlier this year, Apple created a support page that product users can reach out to for help. The page was centered around providing tips for everyday Apple device usage, as well as pointing users to the proper support articles on Apple’s website to help troubleshoot issues.

Apple’s new Twitter page is unlikely to delve into any of that kind of activity, as the header image for the upcoming Apple event on September 7th suggests it will be used for promoting important press releases and statements.

So far, as of this writing, the new @Apple account hasn’t made its first Tweet just yet. It’s expected that we’ll hear something before or during the special event next week.

    Finally a way for haters to release a sh** storm. Bad idea

      Exactly. I have a S7 Edge as well and when I read the reviews for the Move to IOS app people weren’t saying anything bad about the app, but instead saying things like: “why would anyone want to move to a close platform, or why does it allow you to move to IOS, but not move to Android”. Man Android fanatics are the worst. There are tons of Android apps on the AppStore and you’ll never the most part see a terrible rating just because it’s an Android app or Google app.

        When Twitter first came out, many people used usernames such as Google, Apple, Baby, Red etc as a way to sell the accounts to large companies for a profit. Sometimes companies will pay people for their account names or they will contact the site owners requesting the username. It looks like Apple bought the account instead of asking Twitter for it

        They lost the password, and found a duplicate in Steve’s old drawer 🙂

    • Apple needed to buy this handle From Twitter. Someone else must’ve thought they were slick when they created the first “@Apple” handle.

    I liked Apple better when they wasn’t so public.
