Johnson would spend hours helping people on Twitter with their Apple issues, until he eventually became overwhelmed and threw in the towel.

As you need to actually pay for AppleCare, I wonder if most help will take place via DM’s or if they’ll help publicly up to a point then ask you to call a particular customer service helpline.It’s going to be very interesting to see how this works out.

Follow @applecare on Twitter to get involved.
