Bill Gates late to Twitter party
Bill Gates may have been one of the prime movers in the computer age, but now he’s just another middle-aged late adopter.
His first Tweet (“Hello World”) set the ball rolling on Tuesday, and already he has almost 250,000 followers. Several of his tweets have been about raising money for Haiti earthquake relief.
His website — called The Gates Notes — handles a broad range of topics, much of it related to Gates’ primary role as head of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which is working to eradicate killer diseases worldwide and improve standards of education in the United States.
Gates’ review of the year from the point of view of his foundation is due to be published on Monday.
