Jonathan Schwartz, the CEO of Sun with the Jesse Ventura ponytail, is no longer CEO of Sun. In fact, Sun is really no longer Sun now that Oracle has officially bought the former Java/SunRay/Solaris/SPARC powerhouse.
When high-powered execs resign, usually there is a carefully crafted press release talking about "other opportunities," "amicable partings" and "pride in the work done." But Schwartz is no average exec -- he quit through a tweet!
And here's another thing not so average: He resigned via Haiku, writing, "Financial crisis/Stalled too many customers/CEO no more." The thing I like is, even though he's on Twitter, Schwartz had the class to actually spell properly.
Is there a business use for Twitter? How do you tweet? Do you hate misspelled tweets as much as I do? Send e-mail (not a tweet) to db[email protected] or post your comments below.
