Scott Forstall, SVP of iOS Software, has Twitter account

Apple's Senior Vice President of iOS Software, Scott Forstall has joined Twitter. His account is verified, so it's him and Twitter was told and knows it's him, but he's yet post any tweets.

Still, when Techcrunch caught wind of it last night, he had 3 followers (4 when I saw it) and as of this post he has 12,650ish. He's only following one person back -- that's right, he's with Coco.

Why join Twitter at all and why now? Theories range from elaborate antenna-issue distraction conspiracies to Apple testing Twitter integration with iOS. Or maybe he was just waiting for @geohot to leave?
