Fake Steve Ballmer Twitter account used iPhone, now suspended
A few years ago, Steve Ballmer nearly stomped on an iPhone during a company event, showing his distaste for the rival in the desktop and mobile operating systems market. Now that he is no longer running the company, it was little more than a curiosity when a new Twitter account debuted and was being utilized from an iPhone.
The account wasn’t real, though, apparently showing Ballmer still holds his same feelings about the Cupertino company. Now Twitter has suspended @MicrosoftSteve, and it seems unlikely the account will be returning.
It’s not clear if Ballmer or the company he ran were involved in having this taken down. Many fake Twitter accounts exist and are allowed as parody. We’ll have to wait and see if this one comes back.Further reading: Microsoft, Twitter
