Warren Buffet Joins Twitter, Gets Immediately Verified After One Tweet

Apparently all you need to do to get verified on Twitter is be Warren Buffet.

The influential Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway joined Twitter yesterday afternoon, sent out a single tweet, and already has the coveted blue check mark next to his Twitter handle.

He sent out the first tweet while being interviewed by Fortune‘s Pattie Sellers at the University of Nebraska Omaha.

Said tweet:

When asked about Twitter, and technology in general, by his interviewer, Buffet asked if it bites – and also acknowledged that he doesn’t even have a computer on his desk at work (although he does at home).

In fact, Buffet is known to be tech-shy, having famously sat out the technology bubble of the late 1990s. That being said, Berkshire Hathaway did invest nearly $11 billion investment in IBM in 2011.
