Icahn Twitter Feed Continues to Turn Heads; Activist Sees the Dell War 'Far from Over' (DELL)
Carl Icahn's Twitter feed continues to serve -- for better or for worse -- as a nice way for the famed hedge fund manager to tease his next moves.
Icahn, commenting on the outcome of the Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) talks (which have gone on ad nauseam). tweeted the following Friday morning:
We are pleased to have won another battle in the Dell war but the war itself is far from over. More to follow.
— Carl Icahn (@Carl_C_Icahn) August 2, 2013
Icahn could be referring to several things. He might be hinting at continued efforts to find Dell holders the best possible price, he might be leaning toward saying "enough is enough" on a possible deal and instead campaign for change from a less-activist viewpoint, or he could even be indicating at what he feels will be the eventual integration of his slate of managers into the Dell corporate culture.
Icahn's Twitter account boasts nearly 24,000 followers (garnered from just nine tweets) meaning he has acquired more than 2,650 followers per tweet.
Although Icahn is certainly making his presence known on the Twittersphere, he's no Oracle of Omaha. Warren Buffett has nearly 537,000 Twitter followers on just three tweets.
Maybe some day, Carl...
