Apple activated the Twitter account @apple early on Friday morning.
The account had been registered and dormant since 2011, but on Friday it was verified and its generic egg avatar was replaced by an Apple logo.
Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman suggests that Apple is planning to livetweet next week’s iPhone 7 launch.
My guess as well: they’ll live tweet the event. https://t.co/XBbhk3ptZM
