Google CEO Eric Schmidt got on the Twitter bandwagon over the weekend, but he got the rather unfortunate handle of ‘Eschmidt0′ rather than his full name. Twitter has now just moved Schmidt to a proper verified account (so yes, he’s real!) and the old one has been taken over by a squatter named Felipe Barreto.

What’s his taste in Twitter accounts? Well, lots of official Google ones for starters. And then there’s Bob Saget, Heidi Montag and 50 Cent. Go figure.
