The puppy, you see, is not being his usual energetic self. He’s a bit stiff, wooden even—remarkably unresponsive and sappier than usual.

Indeed, it could be a case of “boardom” or it could be something more serious.

The internet has agreed: Take the dog to the vet. The tweet has been shared more than 100,000 times.

Klocke clearly wasn’t expecting the attention. The biomolecular engineering student, who fronts a hardcore band in his spare time, has also shared his amazement.

Many have created personal Twitter accounts to communicate with consumers, share candid thoughts and, in the case of some, start all out wars with their competitors. In the past, business leaders had few public forums beyond shareholder letters and speaking events to engage directly with consumers. But executives are beginning to use Twitter as a way to achieve greater brand recognition, as well as an opportunity to gain trust with consumers. CEO "sociability" is a vital element of building trust and loyalty with consumers, with 82% of consumers being more likely to trust a company whose CEO is active on social media, according to research from Insead Knowledge. On Twitter, company executives can influence conversations and provide exclusive news and announcements. Twitter's "like" and "retweet" functions also make it easier than ever for messages to be spread quickly, according to a report by MIT Sloan Management Review, which studied the Twitter activity of 25 CEOs of publicly traded companies. The study found that most CEOs who use Twitter fall under the "generalist" category, meaning that they use the platform to express personal opinions or interests, as well as for tweeting information related to their business, such as customer stories and broad strategies, among other things. They don't, however, use Twitter to announce new initiatives. Another category of CEOs on Twitter are known as "business mavens," where they share new product announcements and information about management initiatives. They also typically receive the most retweets and favorites, the MIT study noted. That description might bring to mind CEOs among the likes of Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, who recently asked his followers to help him name a tunneling machine, part of his new venture The Boring Company, which was retweeted more than 2,000 times and received more than 11,000 replies (including the suggestion of "Snoop Dug). Thinking about a name for our first tunneling machine … — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 5, 2017 So while it's unlikely that a tweet from a CEO will result in any major stock moves, more CEOs are finding out that it's worthwhile to have their own handle on Twitter. Here's nine CEOs who are using Twitter to their advantage: 1. John Legere To say that T-Mobile CEO John Legere is active on Twitter would be an understatement.
