Dear Bill Gates…How NOT To Use Twitter

Hi Bill:

I noticed you were using Twitter …finally.

Ironic that Steve Jobs would stab himself in the eye before using Twitter and his stock is hitting all-time highs on the eve of your first tweet.

I want to follow you, I even put you on MyShortList, but you are off to a horrendous start.

I noticed that two of your first four tweets were to public messages to Ryan Seacrest.  Oh Geez, you just sent Ashton Kutcher a public message.  Stop it.  Do you not know how to DM yet?

Twitter is your chance to be cool.  If you want to raise money for your foundation, you can go on Oprah once a month and just kill it.  Maybe even just Skype her.

If you are going to use Twitter and get @caroline, the new most powerful woman in America, to verify your account, have a little style.

We would love to know WHERE you are when you are thinking about canning @steveballmer…you can do that with Foursquare. That would kill.

We would love to know why you are not using BINGED.IT to shorten your URL’s? We know…too many characters.  Silly Microsoft.

Most importantly, we would like to know if you are long $msft in your trading account?

Thanks,

@howardlindzon
