5 things we learned from Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer’s tweet from Apple Store Fifth Avenue last night

“Late Tuesday night Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, a finalist and runner-up for Time’s 2012 Person of the Year award, visited the 5th Avenue Apple Store in New York City,” Eli Langer reports for CNBC.

Mayer posted a tweet to Twitter that read: “The 5th Avenue Apple store at 11pm. Wow…” The tweet also included a Flickr photo taken from the stairwell of the store as she headed downstairs,” Langer reports.

If a photo speaks a thousand words, here’s what this one tells us:

1) Mayer doesn’t have the most up-to-date Apple iPhone… [she] still owns an iPhone 4S
2) No one seems to notice Mayer is there… no public tweets made note of her presence
3) Mayer chose not to use a filter on her Flickr photo
4) Yahoo and Apple may be warming up to each other
5) Yahoo is playing offense. Mayer’s tweet… silently promotes Flickr – Yahoo!Flickr’s iOS app

  1. “2) No one seems to notice Mayer is there.”

    Despite being an extremely attractive woman, she doesn’t have a particularly distinctive look about her, and isn’t really a celeb yet. Plus, NYC is full of attractive women.

      1. And Meggie Whitman Harsh bought it in the hopes that the new baby’s inherited good looks and brains might somehow rub off on her. Her sons at Princeton are going to be mighty jealous.

  2. So what exactly has Marissa done at Yahoo whilst she’s been there other than fit into a size too small red dress and sit on a precariously difficult piece of office furniture???
