On Monday evening @U2miracle on Twitter discovered a new U2-related Twitter account. Fans quickly realised that the pictures being tweeted from @U2_360tour could only come from within the organisation.
It looks like it could be The Edge (or someone really close, possibly his wife Morleigh, although both appear in the pictures), using a BlackBerry 8900 (as deducted from the exif-info inside the picture files). The U2 guitarist has been using a Blackberry for some time now, but U2 also recently struck up a deal with RIM after their relationship with Apple ended. “BlackBerry Loves U2” stands are prominently featured at the U2 360 tour concert venues and members of U2’s organisation have been spotted wielding their new brand new mobiles – complete with a slick 360 logo start up screen.
General consensus is, if U2 would contact @ev or @biz at Twitter HQ, they could probably get hold of the currently suspended twitter.com/u2 account, instead of using the current awkwardly named “U2_Tour360”.
Now… they sang “I will follow”, but will they follow us?
