Apple VP enjoys taking pictures, promoting Apple

Apple's Senior Vice President for Worldwide Product Marketing Phil Schiller has always been a sociable guy, and now he's begun actively using the Twitter account he set up (but rarely posted to) two years ago, 9to5 Mac reports. Using the verified account name @pschiller (there are many other fake "Phil Schiller" accounts), since the end of October he has been making regular entries, often posting pictures using Instagram, a popular photo-manipulation and sharing app for the iPhone, as discovered by TechCrunch.

Recent entries have included a song by Atomic Tom, promotion of the Ping and Twitter alliance, and Instagram pictures of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Among the Twitter users Schiller is following is Fake Steve Jobs, along with (real) fellow Apple VP Eddie Cue. Schiller also keeps track of a number of car manufacturers, sports teams and news sources.

    Stop the presses! Someone's using twitter! And he works for Apple! And not just works for them, he's an executive! What's the underlying meaning of this? Does this mean Apple is in the process of buying twitter? Are they basically stating that social media exists? Are they using Phil to point out the stupidity of such sites?

    Come on! We need some investigation into this!!!
