UPDATE 10:09AM ET: As Twitter user @MikeLizun noted, Schmidt's account has yet to be officially "verified by Twitter." Twitter explains its < a href="http://twitter.com/help/verified">"Verified Account" system:
To prevent identity confusion, Twitter is experimenting (beta testing) with a 'Verified Account' feature. We're working to establish authenticity with people who deal with impersonation or identity confusion on a regular basis.
The "Verified Account" badge consists of a white checkmark inside a blue circle that is posted at the top right of the user's page, once it has been checked out. We'll follow @Eschmidt0 and update the post when Twitter confirms whether it's the real Googler or not.
UPDATE 12:31PM ET: Twitter has verified that the account ESchmidt0 belongs to Eric Schmidt. Schmidt is following, among others, Heidi Montag and rapper "PDiddy," Sean John Combs.
