Android Is Now On Twitter

It is official, the Android Team has joined twitter. If you are an avid tweeter and looking for the latest and greatest Android news as it breaks, there are now three accounts that you should follow: @Android, @AndroidDev and of course @Droid_Life.

As of this morning the only tweets were the two you see above. A short” Hello world!”, and a video featuring the unpacking of the Ice Cream Sandwich statue. The account sports an avatar of our robot friend in a delicious form. 

Additionally, yesterday actor Zach Braff (Scrubs, Garden State) had a brilliantly funny tweet:

    Why did it take them so long to get their own Twitter account?

    Everyone does realize unless Google or its partners dump a LOT of money into advertising the Nexus is going to have underwhelming sales like the ones before it, right?  It likely won’t even be the top selling Android phone in Q4 unless some marketing magic happens.
    I have to imagine both the Rezound and RAZR will likely outsell it.

    The big questions on everyone’s mind is “Was that avatar photo taken with a Galaxy Nexus? What does the EXIF data show?” :)

      I think the big question is how did they score that twitter name so late.

    I think you mean there, not their.

    “It is official…, their are now three accounts that you should follow”

    The video they posted was shot at multiple angles and looks like very high-quality video. Only other people I see filming in the shots are using cellphones… possibly all Nexus filmed? (Or just some camera good trickery, haha.)

    “brilliantly funny tweet”?

    I love android as much as the next guy but that is not “brilliantly funny.”

      Indeed it was, yesterday I spent the day listening to all my friends show me the new pull down notification feature in iOS 5. They were talking about the innovation done by Apple as I just giggled to myself. 

      It was nice to see a celebrity make a comment like that :)

        Isn’t Google+ supposed to kill Twitter?

        Is Android one of the 40M Google+ users?

        • http://twitter.com/rkein87 Rob Kein

          You have to use your real identity on G+.

            Are you saying the tasty little ICS isn’t real?  :)

            Yes, you’re right – but you’d think they’d eat their own dog food.
