Could Be Interesting… Rupert Murdoch on Twitter
LONDON — Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has joined the Twitterverse and many wonder how long it will be before he puts his twitter foot in his twitter mouth, as other celebrities have done. Murdoch had a bad year in public relations and analysts speculate he’s trying to repair his image.
So far he’s attracted more than 46,000 followers, tweeting about the Steve Jobs biography and revealing his New Year’s resolutions.
In 2011, Murdoch’s British newspaper, News of the World, faced a phone hacking scandal and several staff members were arrested and questioned. It got so unpleasant across the pond, that when Murdoch showed up for one of the hearings in London, someone tried to hit him in the face with a foam pie.
Murdoch’s wife, Wendi Deng, has also started tweeting. She was at the hearing and stepped in front of her husband to shield him from the pie. Click here for the video from that day.
Murdoch’s account, if you’re interested is: @rupertmurdoch. His wife’s is: @wendi-deng.
