Warren Buffett Joins Twitter

Good for a guy who invests in media to maybe learn how to use it


Pigs aren't flying, lambs aren't lying down with lions, and hell isn't getting any cooler. But Warren Buffett is joining Twitter.

Buffett, the chairman and chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.  who once admitted he didn't know how to check his voicemail, is being dragged into the social-media age by his friends at Fortune. He's sitting down for an interview with the magazine at noon for a panel called "Warren Buffett on Women and Work…and other Wisdom."

The magazine is billing it as his first-ever interview to incorporate social media. And in preparation for the big day, Buffett's assistant revealed the billionaire investor is setting up a Twitter account and will author his first tweet at some point today.
