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!

Apple opens @AppStore Twitter account


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

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.

voy a crchaelo espero que me sirva mas bien espero poder instalarlos bien.Gracias por estas aplicaciones.
