Twitter CEO: Tom Brady tops my most-wanted list for Twitter

Saturday September 22nd, 2012

At the Online News Association's annual conference, in San Francisco, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo was asked whom he would most like to see opining in 140-character bursts using his company's service. Costolo did not hesitate.

"The quarterback of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady," he said, according to Matt Pepin of

Costolo then admitted that he, like Brady, is a University of Michigan alum, so perhaps his answer was colored by that association. Brady -- who already gets more publicity than he knows what to do with -- does not have a Twitter account, but more than 30,000 people follow the parody feed @TomBradysEgo.
