Tim Cook Changes Twitter Name After Trump Snafu

Donald Trump is a name that isn’t heard all that often in the world of tech. Indeed, his name can often draw some pretty strong negative reactions from a wide variety of people, mostly because of the fact that he is such a divisive figure in the world of politics. The reason for Mr. Trump’s sudden relevance in the world of tech has to do with the fact that he referred to Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, as “Tim Apple” at a recent press conference.

This snafu has snatched up some major headlines and has made Trump the center of a great deal of ridicule, and in an attempt to make light of the situation Tim Cook recently changed his name on Twitter to Tim followed by the Apple logo.

Some of the memes that came out of this situation involved naming other famous tech giants after their companies, with Bill Microsoft being one of the most popular one liners being used these days.
