Apple creates App Store Twitter account

Apple has created a Twitter account to help promote apps in its App Store.

Though the App Store has several methods for keeping track of the newest and most noteworthy Apps, Apple has decided that a dedicated Twitter account would further promote some of its favorite applications for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

The @AppStore account has just been verified by Twitter as officially as the first post, "Welcome to App Store on Twitter! Follow us to discover new apps, get exclusive offers, and share with friends. #appstore" was retweeted by the verified @iTunesTV account (and several other accounts).

The second tweet from @AppStore promotes the Nike Training Club App, "Motivation. Full-body workouts. On-demand instruction. It's all available on Nike Training Club. http://tw.appstore.com/4zo #appstore".

Apple asks users to "follow us for official App Store tweets including our featured apps, exclusive offers, and more." No exclusive offers have been posted, though following certainly can't hurt.

What are your favorite follows on Twitter? Let me know in the comments! (And follow me, @ammojoe, for peculiar insights mostly derived at coffee shops.)
