Rupert Murdoch joins Twitter
Media mogul plans to go on a diet and maintain humility in 2012
Media mogul, Rupert Murdoch has joined Twitter. The 80-year-old businessman began tweeting over the New Year holiday, according to the Press Association.
A spokeswoman at his News International company has confirmed the account is genuine.
The chief of News Corporation said on Twitter that his resolutions for 2012 are to "try to maintain humility", go on a diet and stay curious.
Murdoch may face questioning in the UK later in 2012 from the Leveson Inquiry, which is investigating media ethics following the phone hacking scandal that saw the News of the World shut down.
