bill-gates-mugshotBill Gates has joined Twitter and is tweeting away using the web interface.

Twitter employee @caroline has confirmed this.

Of course, Bill Gates is the famed man from Microsoft who brought us a talking paperclip and Windows 1.0 pillow cases, if you remember that far back.

You can follow him on Twitter: @BillGates.

Bill only has 241 followers, and tweeted his first tweet just three hours ago. If you send him an @ now, he might just get back to you. But then again, he is Bill Gates.
