Despite all the secrecy at Apple, plenty of employees at the company are on Twitter.
Engineers, designers and even some big name executives are on the social network, though not all of them are actually worth following.
Scott Forstall, Apple’s senior VP of iPhone software, has a Twitter account but has never actually used it. Then there’s Eddy Cue, senior VP of Internet Services, who rarely posts and usually only about the lousy music he’s listening to (Lady Gaga? Really?).
But many other employee Twitter accounts provide insight into what it’s like to work at the company, offer tips for job openings and shed some light on how Apple’s employees feel about rivals.
Why: Han's feed offers an inside look into Apple's work environment, whether it's tweets about dealing with HR or spotting famous people on campus.
Why: Kawano frequently gives commentary on the designs of other company's products, which is probably as close as we'll get to Apple reacting to new products in real time.
Why: Espinosa is Apple's longest serving employee (he was the company's 8th hire) and frequently answers technical questions from other users on Twitter.
Why: Schiller doesn't tweet much about Apple, but he is one of the highest-ranking employees who actually uses Twitter, and every once in a while you get a nugget like this response to another user about his relationship with Steve Jobs.
Why: Napolitano doesn't tweet every day, but when she does, it usually packs a punch.
Why: Breeding engages with other Twitter users more than most Apple employees do, and sometimes he even advertises jobs at the company.
Why: Cooper does one better than Breeding. He might actually offer you a referral for a job at Apple through Twitter.
Why: Marini's account highlights many of the restaurants where Apple employees hang out in Cupertino and New York.
Why: Because he actually tweets funny and insightful comments about the tech industry.
Why: Because he's not afraid to speak his mind and be critical of other tech companies on Twitter.
Why: Frisby's feed offers some nice details about what a day in the life life of an Apple employee is like.
Why: Because she's really funny.
Why: McLachlan likes to dole out advice from time to time.
Why: Padbury's feed is a running conversation about design and programming.
