As in almost everything he does, Larry Ellison, the co-founder and CEO of Oracle, has been enigmatic in his use of social media. About 28,000 people follow his Twitter account. He follows no one and has tweeted only once. However, that tweet was long in coming and highly anticipated, so it made a big impact.

re: How 6 Tech Execs Set Social Example
These are my comments concerning an earlier slide show in a related publication:
"A 'Slide Show' as your lead article?
And although we can comment on the article, this publication has no (that I can find - and I've been looking a lot) ' Letters to the Editor ' Link. This is terribly unfair to the author(s) who logically did not make the decision to run a carnival Slide Show in lieu of a professionally illustrated article.
PLEASE ?"
