Rupert Murdoch has just joined Twitter!
The account is verified, and Twitter’s chairman, Jack Dorsey, assured incredulous followers that the embattled News Corp. CEO had indeed signed up.
The feed comes complete with an appropriately “I just took this of myself” picture, and Murdoch’s musings about everything from Rick Santorum to “We Bought A Zoo.”
Murdoch stirred up some controversy when he tweeted, “Maybe Brits have too many holidays for broke country!” A twitter account bearing his wife’s name, @Wendi_Deng, replied and told Murdoch to delete that tweet. The account, which according to the Sydney Morning Herald has not yet been verified, also tweeted that Murdoch was joking, and that she was explaining how humor online can sometimes “come off as rude.” Murdoch eventually deleted the tweet, but continued to get criticized for sending it.
