Apple has several profiles on Twitter: to offer support (in English and Spanish), to promote content from the App Store, the iBooks Store, the iTunes Store and iTunes U, to publicize its service streaming of music and trailers, to promote interesting Apple News articles, there are many company accounts on the social network. A special, however, was created in 2011 and was dormant until then.
Today, a few days before holding a special event in which the iPhone 7 and, possibly, the “Apple Watch 2” will be presented, the company has revamped the account @Apple. It is true that she is still asleep (not yet released a tweet even), but the change in the look (the same image as the event invitation, by the way) is a strong indication that the company plans to use it very soon.
My guess? Apple liked the way the covers her events and decided to do the same, posting highlights of events on the social network. 😝 Or, who knows, even make a live blogging complete through the network, to serve those who will not be able to follow the live broadcast by video.
At the time of writing this article, the account has 125,000 followers and rising at a frenetic pace.
Get ready, because next Wednesday has everything to be very busy!

@ Thank you. We will send you a reminder shortly before the event. See you on the 7th.
Who retweet receiving a reminder shortly before the start of the event is one that competitor Samsung has done in the past, say.
