Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, joined Twitter today and started tweeting. Within a few hours of doing it, he already has over 250,000 users and it is growing at the rate of around 50,000 users each hour.

He earlier had a Facebook account also, but stopped using it after he realized that there were too many friend requests on Facebook.

Now he seems to be focusing on his new website Gates Notes and it will be interesting to see his latest thoughts on this site.
