Yes that’s really Andy Rubin



Earlier this week Andy Rubin responded to Steve Jobs via a tweet on twitter from the account @arubin

the definition of open: “mkdir android ; cd android ; repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git ; repo sync ; make”

This tweet has even found its way to a new piece of Swag from androidswag.com

After the tweet was blogged and written about from every site imaginable people started getting nervous that perhaps it wasn’t really Andy Rubin.  To make matters a little more sketchy a check at klout.com revealed that @arubin used to be @duddy. However we tracked @duddy back to Google’s own Scott A Taylor and we got confirmation from Google’s Global Communications and Public Relations Department that it is in fact Andy Rubin’s personal twitter account.

Maybe he’ll start tweeting a little more often. Or perhaps he is doing “buzz”
