    Oprah tweets how much she loves her Surface .. from an iPad

    So she maybe has someone to do her tweets for her (I know) but lets be honest - this is the worst kind of endorsement that MS could have hoped for. Expressionless

    Well considering twitter haven't put out a WP8 App, and they're doing their hardest to kill off every 3rd party twitter app.

    Meh. Big deal.

    Wouldn't you? All of Oprah's endorsements are clearly sponsorship - it's not a personal feed.

    This is like the popular myth that when a radio DJ says "here's a new song I heard that I thought you'd like" that he means something other than "here's a new song that my editor has decided I should play to you after he had lunch with a marketing exec at that guy's studio and they agreed to pay us $500,000 to play it on our station".
