Using Haiku, Sun CEO Resigns On Twitter
ROBERT SIEGEL, host:
And one final note from the world of business, Sun Microsystems CEO Jonathan Schwartz resigned today and he did it over Twitter. Not only did he do it in fewer than 140 characters, he did it in haiku: Financial crisis/Stalled too many customers/CEO no more. Schwartz's departure was expected. Late last month, regulators approved Sun's sale to rival Oracle and the joint company has a new boss. Schwartz has been quiet about his future plans. On his blog he urged followers to stay tuned to, you guessed it, his Twitter account.
