Replacing the surname with the company logo, Apple CEO Tim Cook changed his twitter name to "Tim Apple", a day after US President Donald Trump absent-mindedly addressed Tim Cook as "Tim Apple" at a conference.
Donald Trump pun was made at a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board at the White House on Wednesday that went on to get viral.
The subtle sarcasm from Cook as he joined the joke parade making rounds on social networking platforms has earned him respect, splits of laughter and back pats from people around the world.
Alex Whitcomb, Manager of Audience Development at news website The Wire, tweeted on Thursday, "Guys, @tim_cook changed his name to 'Tim Apple 'and it's the most legendary 'Tim Apple' subtweet of all time".
The twitter community called out other big company leaders and suggested them to follow what Tim Cook did and should do the same.
Another twitter users tweeted saying, "Jeff Amazon, Elon Tesla, Mark Facebook, Jack Twitter, Sundar Google, Satya Soft, lets get the gang together".
Note that the Apple icon as Cook's present Twitter name is visible to only Apple users, while for Windows and Android users the apple icon appears as blank or grey square.
