Well, at least we got his attention. Following our post on CrackBerry yesterday about T-Mobile's recently-sent mailer encouraging BlackBerry users to "upgrade" to the iPhone 5s, it seems company CEO John Legere has been getting a tweetful on twitter from BlackBerry users.
Just a little while ago he acknowledged his BlackBerry customer base with the following tweet:
BlackBerry users, I'm hearing you loud and clear. Let me work with the team and get back to you.
Knowing is half the battle, so it's great to hear our message got through. CEOs may sit at the top, but they don't always know everything that's happening within their organization. Odds are Legere had no idea that particular mailer was going out. And even if he did know and approved of the message (he is tweeting from an iPhone after all), at least now we know they'll be taking their BlackBerry user base a little more seriously than it appears they have been recently.
Here's to hoping all of the T-Mobile USA + BlackBerry users out there get a little love in the near future.
