Following up on the launch of the Apple Gaming Twitter account (and prior to that the Apple Music Twitter account), there’s now a Apple Support account on Twitter.

“We’re here to provide tips, tricks and helpful information when you need it most, and if you have a question, well – we’re here to help with that too,” says the account’s bio. Two hours after launching, @AppleSupport has already been verified by the social media platform.

Thus far, the account is mostly devoted to providing tips and tricks. For instance, @AppleSupport’s first significant tweet shows how to make a checklist in the iOS Notes app. As expected, those running the account are also busy responding to tweets from disgruntled users.

Follow the account @AppleSupport.

    lol. So we’re assuming those who can’t make a checklist in the note app will be able to go to tweeter, create an account (notice I say create coz they probably don’t have one yet), search for apple support twitter account and follow it??

      I think it’s more likely to be the other way around: Someone who’s already familiar with Twitter but isn’t familiar with the iPhone will see and appreciate this.

    LOL, although I like the idea, this won’t last, people will use it for venting about problems they’re having.
