What CEOs are on Twitter?

If you have not heard of Twitter, it is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users updates (otherwise known as tweets); text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Senders can elect to restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default).

In a recent post by Laurel Papworth, she provided a list of CEOs in Australia that are on Twitter. At this stage it seems to be restricted to those who are operating within the Tech space and/or start ups. Clearly these people are early adopters. It is highly likely that over the coming months we will see more CEO Tweets coming from CEOs and Executives in medium to large enterprises.
