Summary:

Google chief Eric Schmidt is tweeting from a verified account: @ericschmidt. If you can’t get your real name as a handle on Twitter, then what’s the point of being the CEO of the borg? You can follow him, but I don’t expect him to say much.

The blogosphere yesterday was abuzz that Google CEO Eric Schmidt had started tweeting. He posted a tweet promoting his op-ed in The Wall Street Journal and an appearance on CNN’s GPS using his Twitter handle @eschmidt0. Apparently, the guys from Twitter noticed and gave him his real ID.

This morning he’s tweeting from a verified account: @ericschmidt. Well, if you can’t get your real name as a handle on Twitter, then what’s the point of being the CEO of the borg? You can follow him, but I don’t expect him to say anything much. More importantly, does this mean Twitter gets a premium when Google decides to buy it?

  1. “…does this mean Twitter gets a premium when Google decides to buy it?”

    @ev already said “no” to Microsoft and Google’s offers of $1,000,000,000.00 back in May.

  2. You can follow him, but I don’t expect him to say anything much.

    Why wouldn’t he say much?

  3. On no you didn’t just call Google that Borg. We (Microsoft) are the original Borg. Get your facts straight!
