Bill McDermott, SAP's co-CEO (until next year when he is expected to become sole CEO), who
is based in Newtown Square, joined Twitter and posted his first tweet yesterday evening:

McDermott joins Oracle CEO Larry Ellison on Twitter, who posted one typically combative anti-SAP tweet in June and hasn't reappeared since:

Ellison attracted over 40,000 followers off that one tweet.

McDermott's first tweet was certainly less controversial than Ellison's and not as well
pre-publicized. His follower count is now at 394 and growing rapidly.
