The Twitter bug has spared no one. From A-list Hollywood actors to A-list Bollywood actors to politicians and now Bill Gates who's finally discovered Twitter. His first Tweet was: “Hello World. Hard at work on my foundation letter — publishing on 1/25.”
Bill (ionaire) Gates, who generously shares his millions with the less privileged already has 271,723 followers and was welcomed by serial Tweeter Ashton Kutcher who himself has a 4 million followers.
If Twitter isn't your thing then Bill Gates has also announced a full fledged website called Gates Notes where he will share his thoughts on his foundation work, his travels and what he's learning.
Gates did have a Facebook account at one point but was so bombarded with friend requests that he closed it down. Reports state that he's back on Facebook.
