Half of Twitter's board members rarely tweet

Twitter made headlines Thursday by appointing its first female board member, Marjorie Scardino. But it turns out the former Pearson chief executive had never sent a tweet prior to joining the company.

Scardino's first tweet came after the @Twitter account announced her appointment.

"@twitter Thank you. There couldn't be a more exciting time in Twitter's history to join!" the new board member tweeted Thursday morning.
