Warren Buffett Is Tweeting Now

Posted May 2, 2013

The world’s richest men are Carlos Slim ($73 billion), Bill Gates ($67 billion), Amancio Ortega ($57 billion), and Warren Buffett ($53.5 billion).  We know that Bill Gates officially tweets.  Now we can count two out of the four of the world’s richest men as Twitter users because Warren Buffett has joined the service.  Buffett sent out his first tweet while being interviewed by Fortune at the University of Nebraska Omaha.  His username is @warrenbuffett.

Buffett was asked if he understood Twitter and he said “so-so.”  He pointed out that Twitter’s co-founder Evan Williams “came from Nebraska so it can’t be all bad.”

There are several fake Warren Buffett accounts on Twitter, but @warrenbuffett was verified as real.  His first tweet was “Warren is in the house.”
