Who does Tim Cook follow?



CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, is a fairly important and influential man in the scope of the tech world, yeah? He’s in charge of one of the wealthiest and most successful companies in the world, and an advocate of change towards workplace (and life-place) equality for all.


So who does he think of as important? Who does he look to? Social media will help us!


Cook currently has 1.14 million followers on Twitter (his preferred public social media forum) however he only follows 37 people. It’s said that who you follow on Twitter (especially when it’s such a small select group) is pretty telling, so let’s have a look, Mr Cook:


1 – Human Rights campaign – Civil rights organization working towards LGBT equality.


2 – The Official Twitter account of the United Nations Human Rights office.


3 – Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft Corporation


4 – The band One Republic 


5 – Aaron Levie, ‘Lead Magician’ (and CEO) at Box, a company that allows you to ‘Access, manage, and share your files securely from anywhere’


6 – Auburn University Tigers Football team.


7 – American Journalist David Muir


8 – Dick Costolo, CEO at Twitter


9 – The National Football Foundation


10 – Scientific American – the ‘authoritative source for the science discoveries and technology innovations that matter.’

12 – Angela Ahrendts, Senior Vice President, Apple Retail.


13 – Duke Men’s Basketball.


14 – Charlie Rose from the Charlie Rose Show.


15 – National Parks Foundation – official Charity of America’s National parks.


16 – iTunes U on Twitter


17 – iTunes on Twitter


18 – ESPN on Twitter


19 – RED Charity ‘Harnessing the power of people & companies to fight AIDS.’

28 – Pope Francis


29 – The Southern Poverty Law Center in Alabama.


30 – The Auburn Plainsman, Auburn University’s student-produced news source.


31 – Duke Basketball, Coverage of Duke Basketball from The Chronicle, Duke’s independent daily student newspaper.


32 – Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, a nonprofit organization working to realize Robert Kennedy’s dream of a more just & peaceful world.


33 – American Journalist Anderson Cooper

35 – Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services

So, it seems like Mr Cook is into Apple (Duh), sports, his Alma Matter Auburn University, sports, tech, news, news oriented comedy shows, charity, and making the world a better place.
