Jack Dorsey, the creator, co founder and chairman of Twitter, confessed his love for his iPad on the micro-blogging site.
In his latest post on Twitter, he said, “90 per cent of my computing is now on the iPad (with a keyboard dock). And I love it. Only thing I can’t do are big presentations & code.”
He also revealed that he uses 23 apps on his iPad every day, and only five on his Mac.
