Meriton boss Harry Triguboff eases into the Twitter revolution at age 79

Larry SchlesingerDecember 8, 2020

Meriton boss Harry Triguboff, who turns 80 next March, has signed up to Twitter.

Triguboff will tweet using the handle @Harry_Triguboff.

He’s only tweeted twice since his July 1 initial post and had just the 12 followers at the time of writing.

So he has some way to go to catch up to Australia’s (and most likely the world’s) most famous tweeting octogenarian, News Limited boss Rupert Murdoch.

Murdoch has 287,000 followers.

Among those Triguboff is following on Twitter are Property Observer (@propertyobs), Donald Trump, the City of Sydney and West Tigers footy club, of which Meriton is the main sponsor.

Triguboff has made quiet start on the social media site, confining himself to company matters. His first tweet was a retweet of a Meriton post about stamp duty. The Meriton company Twitter account has 71 followers.

His most recent (and only original) tweet was July 13 about his appearance on SBS News talking about Asian investors – the core market for his new apartment projects.
