A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had his public twitter account discovered today thanks to Plaxo’s marketing chief John McCrea.

Interestingly McCrea discovered the account whilst searching for a previous discussion with a Facebook employee, consequently he noticed that employee had tweeted with an @finkd. Zuckerberg has had a private twitter account under the username @zuck but apparently he’s left that one virtually unused.

Before assuming otherwise, according to Eric Eldon at VentureBeat, the company have confirmed the account is genuine.

Considering the recent Facebook updates, and similarity in features, it’s an interesting development.
