Meet Warren Buffett’s Internet Alter Ego, @WarrenBuffitt

It’s only been a few hours since Warren Buffett joined Twitter, but the billionaire investor already has a copycat who writes under the homophonous Twitter handle, @WarrenBuffitt.

His first few Tweets show that Buffet’s doppelgänger is both a high roller and a social media maven: “Playing words with friends with @oprah for $4 billion a game. #peasants,” he wrote less than an hour ago. (Oprah Winfrey must have lost the game, because she never wrote back.)

 

Fortunately for the real Warren Buffett, his twin is not quite as popular. At the time of this post, Buffitt’s follower count was 67, compared to Buffett’s 166,807.

Although we’d like to hear a little bit more about this coal business. Sounds innovative!
