Donald Trump called Tim Cook “Tim Apple”, here’s what Apple CEO did next

Day after US President Donald Trump calls Apple CEO Tim Cook as Tim Apple at a White House meeting, Cook quietly changed his Twitter profile, replacing his last name with the Apple logo.

An understandable slip, perhaps, coming from the US President was enough for Tim Cook to change his name on Twitter.

In the video which went viral on the internet with over 10 million views, President Trump sitting alongside with Apple’s CEO Tim Cook can be heard saying ‘We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.’

“I used to say, ‘Tim, you’ve got to start doing it over here,’ and you really have. You really put a big investment in our country. We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple,” Trump said.

However, Cook’s Apple-logo icon is only visible on iPhones and Mac computers. For everyone else, the name simply reads Tim along with a square box.
