In a curiously delayed move, Apple has finally launched a customer support account on Twitter.
Apple now has an official Twitter account dedicated to helping customers with their iDevices.
The account, aptly named @AppleSupport, has only been live for one hour, but has already posted north of 100 tweets.
Check it out:
Most responses seem to be directing customers to Direct Messages or Apple support pages.
However, @AppleSupport’s bio says the page will “provide tips, tricks and helpful information”.
For example, Apple offers advice on how to turn lists into check-lists on the Notes app:

The page already has over 18,000 followers, and that figure is quickly rising.
It’s worth noting that Apple still doesn’t have an official account that spans its entire brand.
However, the company does operate a number of accounts for specific services like the App Store, Apple Music, and iTunes.
What’s more, several company executives at Apple also have personal accounts, including CEO Tim Cook.
The @AppleSupport page's operational hours are 08:00 to 17:00 (PT), and currently only offers English-languge support.
