How you know Microsoft's CEO is off to a good start...

Satya Nadella

Satya Nadella hasn’t even been Microsoft’s CEO publically for a full day, but he’s already off to a great start. 

Now he just needs to follow up with Daniel Rubino for an interview in the next 48 hours and we'll be really happy. :) Or, if not in next two days, at least at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona coming up at the end of this month.

Bravo. Long live the CEO!

Yes sir. I have a good feeling about this guy.

Yangstax says:

What a relief!  It is great that MS has passed Steve Elop as a candidate.  I guess that I will keep my MSFT shares for a while.

SwimSwim says:

Never even heard of him before it was announced he's CEO. But he seems like a pretty cool guy, makes me feel good about Microsoft's future. :)

cuwe says:

I don't understand . Can someone explain :)

androidtoWM says:

his previous tweet was 4yrs ago.

luiislp says:

his last tweet was 4 years ago I believe.

Rem97 says:

I believe the last time he tweeted before today was 4 years ago, so thats why he said that. :)

Ayman Jaddaa says:

Lol don't you think he got the point? haha

Not sure....so...Satya has had a habit of tweeting only occationally.
The last one (before becoming the MSFT CEO) was about four YEARS ago

a5cent says:

Tweets are a means of simple mass communications. The thing is, he was an enterprise/corporate IT guy, where 140 characters of information gets you nothing. Overall, his departments were more communicative than any other of MS' divisions. They just used different channels.

Giddora says:

Its been four years since his last tweet.

MrSimmix says:

4 years ago, he last tweeted.

blackhawk556 says:

It was four years ago since he last tweeted. I don't remember what it was. Ita been four years so I forget what he tweeted four years ago. please forgive me as stuff that happened four years ago becomes a big blur. When was the last time you remembered a tweet someone sent four years ago? I can't remember what I did four years ago, so not remember a tweet that is four years old normal I think. Has it really been four years since his last tweet? Wow how fast these four years have gone by. Four long years!!!

mreaglejr says:

Wait, so what happened and when?

Jnero20 says:

FOUR years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

I only only tweet when I feel the urge.

You only tweet on the toilet? wtf?

Ekon says:

Tweet tweet...

And he tweeted too.

Way to go Nadella :)

Talbot690 says:

Mmmmm nutella

Today is actually World Nutella Day.

Reflexx says:

Yay! He has the blue checkmark now!

McWall says:

Give him a few days to get in the job! Dan! He will get to you!

rodneyej says:

I can't wait for that.. I just wanna see what device he has in his pocket... I'm not gonna be impressed by him until I see some real passion for WP.. And that's that..
For me it's all about what he's gonna do to make WP better, more appealing, more well known, and evolve quicker... That's what I want to know NOW❕
One thing we know is that the recent purchase is one of his top priorities to be successful... That gives me a lot of hope that he will seriously put his personal resources into seeing that WP software, and hardware, are competitive.. I just hope he has a more bold approach to WP as far as excitement, coolness, fun, and eye catching elements are involved..... IOW... I want to see more visually appealing aspects such as more well thought out, futuristic, animations throughout the OS....

MrSimmix says:

I didn't see that one coming.

Winnabe says:

'coz it's invisible.

Jack Larson1 says:

To the knee.

I think they guy meant to say *fithed, but it autocorrected x)

McWall says:

I understand your feelings! However, Microsoft's future is going to be very dependant on mobile phones. More then 15 years ago Bill Gates was saying this! The problem is Bill Gates left the day to day business and the company was making tons of money doing other things. Like dominating the operating market and now the server market! Now they have a strong base. Now they can start hitting the mobile. Market. Sometimes it is better not to be first in a market. The XBox is a perfect example! This man sounds like he is tailor made for the mobile expansion. He has been with this company a long time and he has run one of the best operating part of the company. (Cloud Services) We will see what he does in the future. But, he has a very good base! Now he has to sell it and grow it! Let Daniel have a chat with him. He has a good feel for most of these guys! He will give us his thought's!

rodneyej says:

Are you replying to the right person❔

McWall says:

Sorry ! Fingers are too big!

ngc891 says:

That's what she said...

mswindows101 says:

Agreed with" I'm not gonna be impressed by him until I see some real passion for WP.. And that's that" and pretty much the rest of your comment too. For me it's all about the success of the best. And that's WP and W8 OS.. Did you see that? I eSpit just now lol.. And the success of Xbox as well!

rodneyej says:

Well said❕❕❕❕❕

Cellus13 says:

Exactly. I'm ready to see some action. I'm hungry for some changes when it comes to windows phone. Windows 8.1 is being done right, even RT, now put some of that work into WP.

rodneyej says:

How about swiping from the left to reveal a charms menu, like in W8❔

jayc101 says:

I saw video a while back I believe it was for a notifications concept where it showed swiping to the right.. I agree,it would be cool to have some options for swiping to the right. It would be even better if you could set it for what you want,sort of like the way the lock screen gives you the option to set what notifications you get on it. It would be cool to have the option to put.. Say the Charms bar there,or set it for quick setting,or notifications etc. Awesome!

rodneyej says:

I have never agreed with a comment so much in my entire life!! That is exactly what MS should do.❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕❕
And, If you think back to Windows Mobile 6.0 it did this exact same thing.. Well, at least my old Samsung Epix did this... Here's how it looked...
There's actually a lot of features I miss about WinMo6.1... That's sad.
Actually, I think the custom menu pulled down on the right, and you could open it by pressing the scrolling wheel.. I think.

Talbot690 says:

I just want a dashboard update for my onebox

ahmadcrofton says:

I want to work there sooooo bad

gibbage says:

Did that for 5 years.  Lots of free soda.

ahmadcrofton says:

5yrs!! Do you have any connections there?

AriesDog says:

MS has a location near me in Malvern, PA but nothing that I'd be a perfect fit for.

deluksic says:

I'm a .Net developer for WP and I want to work there. What do I do? (and am also from croatia..):D

ZackTheNever says:

Daniel will get him

stui83 says:

I think there is a lot more that cloud computing can bring to windows phone. Both cloud computing and windows phone are leveraged by mobility. And mobility is leveraged by modern human needs. Hopefully the new CEO has the vision to further connect these dots

Nik Rolls says:

Especially with the (very important) background restrictions to Windows Phone. Developers should do as much as possible in the cloud and save my battery. Cloud just needs to be cheaper and easier.

k0de says:

That's great. I just started following him. This is going to be good.

Jas00555 says:

I retweeted that lol

Aashish13 says:

Both of them should join WP central community

Ezhik says:

He'd probably get flamed off for acting respectful towards his competitors.

Hilarious but true! No lagdroid crosses these boundaries

Yeah he would get to know the platform in a much better way...

Winnabe says:

What, wait, did the last line of the article actually mean Daniel is scheduled to have an interview with him??

No, he is gonna try and get an interview in the next 48 hours.

i guess not actually scheduled or rather may be..more of a speculation i suppose!!

Winnabe says:

Ohk, thanks guys. R&C fail. :D

AriesDog says:

I just hope he's pro Xbox. PCmag.com posted a flame bait article saying he'll probably want to spin off Xbox because he's an enterprise cloud guy.

wpn00b says:

Add him on twitter and let him know your opinion

Nik Rolls says:

Did they miss his interview at LeWeb last year where he was raving about how Forza uses Xbox for smart AI? Xbox One would be much less awesome without Azure cloud, and it's also Azure's largest 'customer'.

sayonical says:

He has a sense of humor which is good

MrA2Z says:

Daniel pls focus your interview on WP and devices. We don't want to hear about Windows for once.

Unless it involves how windows will be more integrated and work better with windows phone and vice versa. ;)

Sam Sabri says:

MrA2Z pls stop using pls instead of please. It hurts my brain and every time you type pls an English professor dies. 

Jas00555 says:

Is that why I have no class tomorrow?

Winnabe says:

Yeah, use plz, not pls.

Sin Ogaris says:

Or plx.

Giv itam plx????????

jcutting says:

Sam, the same could be said about you using "definately." I saw it in one of your comments earlier and it hurt me. There is definitely no 'a' in definitely. :-) :-)

Sam Sabri says:

Duh. That's just the autocorrect on my Apple iPhone 5S ;)

Quin 2013 says:

You're fired.
Where's my pitch fork! XD

HaibaneReki says:

Ooh, that hurt =D

MrA2Z says:

Ok boss, but I think it's time to teach SMS language to English professors :)

I'd rather have all things microsoft in one place than subscribing to a million feeds but I get your point. We all want to see great things for WP all the time.

lovebill says:

Hope he will be more active in twitter

i kind of find it a bit funny when i read this:- posted via wpc app for iphone/android!!no offence.....!!!

Chef316 says:

I don't know why...but it frustrates me and makes me laugh at the same time lol

Vinc1992 says:

I deeply trust in you, Satya Nadella. I hope you won't disappoint us.It's time to regain the pride of Microsoft.I wish you all the best.Good luck!!!

cesarosses says:

He should make Microsoft services and products worldwide. 

In order to use Xbox Music and apps on my Xbox I had to change my region to USA. In order to have a Surface I have to import it. 

I hope he is pro WP and making Microsoft services and products worldwide. 

madtourist says:

I hope so too, but I won't hold me breath. When it takes an entire year to make the Xbox one available in some European union countries something is VERY wrong with that company, especially when the the PS4 is available since Xmas.,

exsanguine says:

Erm, you can lay all that blame squarely on the EU for that nonsense.

hopmedic says:

Remember how long it took Mary Jo Foley to get that Ballmer interview....

At least he has a sense of humor

Mayur says:

So did Ballmer and he also knew physical comedy :)

blessthejon says:

I like this guy. He seems hip & modern.

Quin 2013 says:

Yeah, that's why he tweets every four years.

MrGoodSmith says:

None of you seem to have got the real meaning behind that tweet. Think deeper.

MrGoodSmith says:

Have you noticed how he didn't capitalize the f and the i? Through social media he is trying to reach the younger generations and get closer to people. He is already building a great charisma, and that will help the Microsoft brand in a way or another.

jeddo45 says:

You over thought that one dude...

Nexus 5...enough said

But did you notice, most of his previous tweets were all in lower case? Maybe you're misunderstaning... Or maybe...

Now the time to re-open my twitter account...

taymur says:

Just a comment, that might lead to an improvement, why dont you guys embed the tweet, rather than taking a screenshot of it?

Rich Edmonds says:

In case said tweets are removed or future unforeseen circumstances.

taymur says:

I see, fair enough.

Vinc1992 says:

Bill Gates, Satya Nadella and Nokia's employers will be working together.Guys do you know what that means?

taymur says:

What does that mean?

Mayur says:

Not really, please explain...

Jombib says:

Um who are Nokia's employers?

Emerging threat for other platforms or what?

nokiauser911 says:

I just learned that he is from my state. "Andhra pradesh". Yeh!

syedjalalt says:

Oh Absolutely. He's from my City Hyderabad.

nokiauser911 says:

He is from Krishna district, Not native to Hyderabad.

syedjalalt says:

I mean yes. His residence is in Banjara Hills though. A great moment for us I would say

nokiauser911 says:

Hope he truly re inventes microsoft and WP with it.

syedjalalt says:

Lets hope for the best.

Winnabe says:

Look, I am an Indian myself, but this jingoism is stupid.

Interview? :O

Posted via the WPC App for Android!

Vinc1992 says:

It means that Microsoft is coming back to take the crown. That's what I feel,what do you guys feel?

syedjalalt says:

I cannot agree more and I cannot wait for it to happen. Let's hope for the best.

Chef316 says:

Have a private party booked by Microsoft that will be at the restaurant I work at tonight.

I hope this is the start of a leaner, meaner, faster acting MS. The inter-office politics and target setting and general lack of communication, within MS; this has really slowed MS down, so it has been unable to react to market trends. Hell, it has had trouble gauging opinion also -xbone, win 8, office 365, surface and the rest. MS has to get back to being the best, doing whatever it needs to to get there!

I think the greater rile Gates will play will hopefully also have a beneficial impact, though i know there have been calls for Gates and Ballmer to both back off. I think Ballmer's threat-management style was not so conducive in fostering an innovative culture - playing catch up isn't a great place to be. MS has posted fantastic results but there is so much more they can do, and better and more importantly faster. I hope this change gives them the edge and clear thinking they need.

Good luck!

And don't destroy Nokia.

And can i have the 1020 successor early? ;)

Fizoto says:

I feel a bit of hope here. :D

jailman says:

Ok so can he beat or at least make MS compete with google am not sure

xankazo says:

Bring Bing Rewards and the rest of Microsoft Services to the rest of the world. Please. Thank you.

Fred Teles says:

No wonder if Microsoft is also just an eye on the NOKIA patents , as well as with the MOTOROLA GOOGLE did , and then , with the patent in hand, gave only the mark for LENOVO with the right use of technology .. .
I have the conviction that MICROSOFT is not and never has been focused on hardware , purchase of NOKIA in my opinion nothing more than a strategy , a common strategy nowadays among large companies technologies in the relentless fight for patents.
MICROSOFT MICROSOFT is not MICROHARD . Make no mistake , just look at the history of the company .
In addition to still be of extreme interest of the company selling its OS for smartphones for several other brands , thus becoming a direct competitor of the GOOGLE ANDROID ; MICROSOFT producing their own hardware alienate companies that could come to invest in devices with WINDOWS PHONE without a doubt ( remember the recent conflict between google and samsung after the release of Moto G ') . All this goes against the principles of MS .
Does anyone else believe that in a not too distant future the question will be in the air .. " WHO WILL BUY NOKIA ? "

HoosierDaddy says:

Imagine how good the day could have been if he didn't waste part of it trying to help Gates install Windows 8.1 and both of them failing: http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/borowitzreport/2014/02/gates-spend...

Now that's funny, especially if true that Gates decided to use Windows 7 instead of 8 going forward.
