Apple CEO Tim Cook has shifted his name to “Tim Apple” on Twitter, an obvious reference to the US president, perhaps incorrectly, drawing his name on a meeting. Technically, it is “Tim”, but only Mac and iOS users can see the Apple logo.
Last night, at a typical US workforce advisory board meeting, President Trump Cook called the name and immediately called him “Tim Apple”. Shortly after Verge first reported the mistake, it began on social media and eventually became a trending Twitter moment. Now, Cook has changed his display name on Twitter in an obvious attempt to laugh with everyone on the Internet.
The Apple character is not a Unicode symbol and is only visible on Apple’s operating system, unfortunately. So if you are using an Android or Windows device, you see only one blocked square or another “failed to do” symbol.
