Steve Ballmer Reveals His Secret Twitter Account

CmdrTaco posted more than 3 years ago | from the i-wanna-watch-the-steves-wrestle dept.

Microsoft 166

alphadogg writes "'Quietly' is not a word that would usually describe any action performed by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. But quietly is exactly how Ballmer has conducted himself on Twitter, a site he joined over a year ago unbeknownst to most of the technology world. Just a few days ago, Ballmer was speaking in Kiev, Ukraine, and according to a transcript on the Microsoft website, Ballmer responded to an audience member who asked 'when are you going to start tweeting?' Ballmer said: 'I have a Twitter account. I'm just very private about who I really am on Twitter.'"

Which is why he'll be bringing out iTwit in the first quarter 2011. It will run a version of iOS, and you'll have to buy every letter from the App Store, but only after you sign an EULA stating you won't use the letters to spell bad words.

Honestly it shows the difference between him and Bill Gates. Gates is tweeting all the time. Balmer 4 tweets in a year. Gates *LIKES* tech plays with it, it is his life. Balmer it is something to sell. It also shows quite clearly why MS has stagnated tech wise for the past 10 years.

Re:Inquiring minds want to know... (4, Interesting)

CannonballHead (842625) | more than 3 years ago | (#34177002)

I'm not going to defend all of MS.

But to say it's stagnated is an overstatement. Windows 7 was decent. Windows Live Essentials is pretty decent (and free). Windows Live Mesh is pretty nice. That new kinect thing seems to have gotten favorable first impressions. Even IE 9 seems like it's going to be a huge improvement (perfect? of course not, but huge improvement).

Could they be better? Oh, definitely. Did they have rough years? Totally. Could they have done better? Of course. Are they actually "stagnated" right now? I don't really see that.

Re:Inquiring minds want to know... (4, Interesting)

samkass (174571) | more than 3 years ago | (#34177150)

to say it's stagnated is an overstatement.

Windows 7 and Microsoft Office make up 95% of their profits, so the rest are-- to use an Apple phrase-- hobbies. They have subsidized XBox and Windows Phone 7 development with Windows/Office profits to the tune of billions of dollars. In 25 years they haven't created a new product line that's made more than a tiny fraction of their two big products. In comparison, Google didn't exist at all back then, and Apple gets 60% of its profits from products that didn't exist 4 years ago.

Re:Inquiring minds want to know... (1)

i41Overlord (829913) | more than 3 years ago | (#34177838)

That's actually a bit misleading. Sure, Microsoft has been selling operating systems and office productivity products for more than 25 years. But Windows 7 and Office 2010 haven't been out for that long, so you can't imply that Microsoft isn't introducing new products. They have a couple of really popular brands and they're going to continue leveraging those names as long as they can.

Re:Inquiring minds want to know... (0, Troll)

DarkVader (121278) | more than 3 years ago | (#34178404)

There's nothing misleading about it. Windoze 7 is just windoze NT 6.1 - a service pack for Vista (NT6.0), which as we all know is a failed attempt to rewrite XP (NT 5.1), which is just a facelift of 2000 (NT5.0), which is a marginal improvement on NT. It's not a new product, it's an incremental change to a bad operating system released in 1993.

Office 2010 is yet another bloat addition to their same old office product that's demonstrably a worse product than when Excel and Word were introduced in 1985 and powerpoint in 1987 on the Macintosh. The current user interface on windoze is garbage, it would benefit greatly from bringing back menus. It's somewhat better on the Mac, but it really needs a serious bloat trimdown.

So no implication that they aren't introducing new products is needed - you can just go ahead and say it. They aren't introducing any relevant new products, and haven't for a very long time.

And what's wrong with that? Not every product can possibly grow into multi-billion sales. Most products aren't mega-sellers. Windows and Office, yes they are the cash cow.

Twitter's success has come from the fact that it has no one specific use-case. You can use it to communicate with millions of people, or you can use it to manage SMS broadcasts with only your closest friends, or you can use it in millions of other ways. It is up to you to determine how it best fits your needs, if at all.

Not to state Balmer is an example, but sheeple like my mother misunderstand social media conditions because the sites *want* you to sign up even when you don't need to. /. has few nags to sign up on the front page and most importantly, we've always been able to post AC. Twitter and facebook have public areas too, but they misleed noobs to believe they can't watch videos, tweets or the Queen of England's facebook page till after forking over registration info.

The companies win, because now they can datamine them, even if postings aren't being made.

stephanruby (542433) | more than 3 years ago | (#34177570)

Twitter is like email. It can be pointless and/or useful. It really depends how you use it.

Take a look at your unfiltered email inbox, a lot of it is spam, a lot of it is announcements/mailing lists related, a lot of it is chit-chat (what your extended family did on vacation), a lot of it is someone carbon copying you on something (because they want to keep you in the loop just in case), and this is not to say that all these categories are completely pointless, they're not necessarily. It's just that if you judge email based on its most visible attributes, you're bound to make some incorrect assumptions about it.

And I won't bore you with my own use of Twitter, I'm not trying to accumulate the highest number of followers, I'm not famous, I don't have the most interesting tweets, I hardly re-tweet anything from anyone else (I did once, that's about it), and chances are if you start following me, I won't reciprocate, so it's not like my own use of Twitter would even be super-visible to you.

why is this on slashdot?

  • Steve Ballmer is CEO of Microsoft, an important technology company
  • Slashdot has a fixation on the evilness and failings of Microsoft (when there's plenty of tech company evilness and failings to focus on)
  • Recently the Microsoft Kin, a phone targeted at social networkers, was released and quickly withdrawn from sale
  • It sounds very much like one of the reason Microsoft Kin might have failed is that it did so horribly at fulfilling the expectation of social networkers, like having decent Twitter support
  • The Microsoft Kin was seen by many as an attempt by Microsoft to connect to the youth (or young adult, at least) culture to spure sales, a feat that seemingly Apple has done reasonably well
  • One of the seeming claims behind Apples success is precisely that its CEO becomes overly involved in product development
  • Given your statements about Steve Ballmer's lack of remotely heavy Twitter use, it seems unlikely he'd be of much help even if he copied Apple in that regard
  • Which leads to the final point, that as trendy and stupid as you might thing Apple is, they don't seem to engage their intended audience so badly in part because they don't try to connect in ways that are not their own strengths

Does that answer your question?

Your confusion probably stems from your ignorance of tax planning rule #1: Sell when capital gains taxes are low and likely to go high.

My confusion isn't in the tax argument. I get the notion of reporting a loss to offset tax burdens. But selling roughly 20% or $2B of his stake in Microsoft isn't a "small fraction." Particularly with present discussions about Microsoft's future floating around.

I always knew he was a twit. This just confirms it.

So the whole story is... (1)

...that Steve Ballmer has a twitter account, but no idea what it is?

Thanks, that almost tells me something useful...

Seriously, what was the point of this? That's like finding out that Bill Gates likes to build PCs and buys his parts from an on-line vendor.

Never mind - I failed to read TFA, my bad.

Who knew that @stevebmicrosoft is Mr. Ballmer?

SEC???? (1)

Didn't another CEO get in trouble over having a Twitter account and other social media? Perhaps the SEC needs to investigate Microsoft over the matter since Ballmer could potentially be giving advise or hinting at matters and cause insider trading to occur, even if unintentional.

As far as any sufficiently large business is concerned, nothing is illegal until such time as you have been taken to court and exhausted all the appeal avenues you're prepared to follow.

IMO public microblogging and Internet postings should be considered fair disclosure, espicially if the real name and company was disclosed.

Really I have better things to do in life. Hence I am not on facebook twitter etc and do not follow main stream media either. I like /. but that is about it.
