Rupurt Murdoch Joins Twitter

January 2, 2012 by David John Walker

80 year old media tycoon Rupert Murdoch has finally joined Twitter, as of January 1, 2012, with these first few tweets on New Year’s day: “Have just read The Rational Optimist Great book,” then “Steve Jobs biog interesting but unfair. Family must hate”, then several tweets later, finishing out the day with praise for actor George Clooney: “Saw Fox film Descendants. Thank God, one to be proud of. Star Geo Clooney deserves Oscar, maybe film too.” Murdoch’s News Corporation purchased Twentieth Century Fox, one of the big six American movie studios, in 1985.

Some were surprised to see Murdoch hop onto the Twitter bandwagon because he has been the target of so many scathing and critical tweets in the past and there was a hacking campaign on Twitter to have his News of the World shut down. Murdoch’s interests are varied as demonstrated by the 17 tweets he has made, just two days into 2012, and he already boasts more than 42,000 followers.

The Octogenarian on this the second day of the new year told his followers of his admiration for Scotland’s first prime minister, Alex Salmon, and congratulated Mike Bloomberg for “getting some rewards for being New York’s best mayor in memory!”

Just don't see Rupert tweeting at all. Guess he hired someone to do it for him. Looks like George has a friend....

I agree Joanna. A warm fuzzy from that man may not necessarily be a good thing.

Totally agreed. Not someone George wants to be friends with but also not someone to have as an enemy, huh?

I think you're right Dex, this does read like someone else writing and not the man himself. I just can't see him writing in that way.

What Murdoch's assistant wrote:

“Saw Fox film Descendants. Thank God, one to be proud of. Star Geo Clooney deserves Oscar, maybe film too.”

What Murdoch initially wrote before assistant re-wrote above:

"OMG! just saw Fox film Descendants. Totally awesome. My sexy BFF Georgie Boy deserves Oscar, maybe film too."

LOL Melbert I can just see Rupert writing that. Especially the OMG and totally awesome part. The man is over 80 I doubt he even knows how to turn on a computer he has staff for everything so some lucky person now has a new part of their job. And your right Katie it isn't good to have Rupert as an enemy......much safer if he likes you.
