Apple opens @AppStore Twitter account

Apple has opened the twitter account @AppStore and posted the following first tweet:

Welcome to App Store on Twitter! Follow us to discover new apps, get exclusive offers, and share with friends. #appstore

It'll be interesting to see what Apple does with this account, particularly with exclusive offers. The iTunes Twitter accounts are currently used to announce new releases and sales, so we will likely see something similar. There has been a second tweet from @AppStore promoting Nike Training Club.

Motivation. Full-body workouts. On-demand instruction. It’s all available on Nike Training Club. #appstore

If you're on Twitter, follow @AppStore and let us know what you hope to see from Apple's newest Twitter account!

Can anyone else see that this is a blatant move from Apple towards securing the AppStore name brand?

Iniziale R says:

Haha! That's exactly what I was thinking, but like other say... And?

smchrist says:

Exactly what I was going to say, Jaimex99. Except, without the "blatant" part. I think it's a very strategic move.

hopefully they are testing some twitter integration within Ios5!

I wonder how much they are charging developers for a tweetout

I'm following ;)
Hopefully they give things away. That would be sweet

I'll follow if after a week or two this turns out to be anything other than a Twitter version of a US App Store front page. I expect all content to be US centric and for no offers, no tips, just one way adverts with no interaction. This is NOT what Twitter is for.

Time to start getting bombarded with questions about all those Android app stores that Steve says exist everywhere!

Steve Jobs says:

When will I make a Twitter, that is the real question.

Bye, Bye Cable Companies and you're ridiculous monthly bills/fees! It looks like the day when cable is gone forever is coming much more quickly than even I anticipated. Canceling cable TODAY!
