“Marissa Mayer may have had one of the most powerful positions at Google, the supplier of the Android operating system, and been in charge of its Local side (which of course would aim to use Google products such as Maps and location services),” Charles Arthur reports for The Guardian. “But for herself, she was an iPhone user even while ruling the top of Google.”
“There are plenty of pics of her holding an iPhone during presentations [from as far back as 2007, the year the iPhone was released],” Arthur reports. “More solid evidence comes from her Twitter feed. Analysing the method used to send tweets (via tweetstats.com) shows that while the vast majority were sent from a desktop/laptop browser, her next most common method of posting was via the iPhone Twitter client.”
Further evidence? She was also a user (Tweetstats says) of Foursquare (that’s cross-platform). And the key clue: Instagram – which was iPhone-only until early April….
