A man using the media mogul’s name started tweeting over the New Year’s holiday, and a spokeswoman at his News International company confirmed Monday the account — which has the handle rupertmurdoch — is genuine.
The embattled chief of the sprawling News Corp. media conglomerate says on Twitter that his resolutions for 2012 are to "try to maintain humility" and to diet.
The 80-year-old added that he wants to stay curious. He also sounds bored with his holiday: "Back to work tomorrow," he says. "Enough idling!"
