Looks like Google CEO Eric Schmidt has adopted an "If you can't
acquire beat them, join them" attitude when it comes to Twitter. After calling the tool a "poor man's email" last March, Schmidt began Tweeting last night.
And he's already pulled a Sarah Palin. He started using @eschmidt0, then switched to @ericschmidt - an entirely different account. Unlike Palin, though, Schmidt's followers seemed to have followed him to the new account. Of course, it's only been a day, so that worked in his favor.
So far, Schmidt has a whopping 2 tweets. No word on whether or not it's actually his executive assistant ghost tweeting for him.
