Technophobic investor Warren Buffett now has a Twitter account, but his followers probably shouldn't expect much activity.
Buffett debuted his new @WarrenBuffett online handle on Thursday.
In an interview Sunday the billionaire said that he joined Twitter because he thought the service would help give wide distribution to an article he wrote about women in business.
Since signing up, Buffett has gained 374,212 followers. It probably doesn't hurt that he spoke to a crowd of more than 30,000 Berkshire Hathaway shareholders on Saturday.
Buffett has always resisted investing in technology companies because he says he can't predict the future of those businesses the same way he can in insurance or manufacturing businesses.
