After giving away $10,000 to the downloader of their 10 billionth app and being snubbed, Apple today went ahead and opened a twitter account for the App Store.

Welcome to Twitter, Apple…

As you can see by the above tweet, the twitter account will allow followers to discover new apps, recommend apps as well as get exclusive content via the account. The most recent tweet talks about getting free recipes via the appstore. Although there are only seven tweets from Apple, they are already being followed by over 62,000 people. That is quite a feat since its inception a few hours ago.

What is puzzling though, is why Apple took so long to create an account on the micro blogging site. But hey, now that they are here, you can follow them by clicking here .
