Rupert Murdoch Is on Twitter and It’s Weird
Posted on Jan 2, 2012
During his first few days on the social network, the mogul promoted “We Bought a Zoo,” told Iowans to consider Rick Santorum, praised President Obama (“decision on terrorist detention very courageous - and dead right!”) and called education America’s “absolute biggest crisis. No read, no write, no jobs.”
Murdoch also reviewed the Steve Jobs biography (“interesting but unfair. Family must hate”), called Michael Bloomberg the best New York mayor in memory, and said the city is “cold and empty, even central park. Nice!”
Once more for posterity: “cold and empty. Nice!”
There’s something about a man who could stand in for Mr. Burns dropping terse, staccato tweets complete with exclamation marks, like he’s some kind of teenager who is super pumped about The Wall Street Journal, that is just … odd.
It’s also a great opportunity to pester the man. Rupert, consider yourself followed. —PZS
