@ericschmidt Tries Out ‘Poor Man’s Email’

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.
