Editor's Note: Well, we got fooled. This account is not affiliated with Jamie Dimon or JPMorgan Chase. It's now identifying itself as a parody account, which is likely the only reason it hasn't been deleted by Twitter. We regret the error and apologize to Mr. Dimon.
JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon joined Twitter Wednesday afternoon in a momentous embrace of social media, using the handle @JPMorganCEO and tweeting these scintillating words:
We are excited to announce that our CEO James Dimon has joined Twitter. This account is managed by the Global Media Relations Department. — James Dimon (@JPMorganCEO) August 27, 2014 Really, Jamie, you shouldn't have! In response, the Twitterati naturally provided a warm welcoming party for one of Wall Street's more sympathetic bankers:

Can't believe Jamie Dimon joined Twitter just to weigh in on @SavedYouAClick — Brett LoGiurato (@BrettLoGiurato) August 27, 2014 Well, make that not so warm. We're happy to have you on board, Global Media Relations Department Mr. Dimon.
