On Thursday, reports from Bloomberg News indicated Microsoft would be naming Satya Nadella, an executive vice president at Microsoft, as the company's new CEO to replace the retiring Steve Ballmer.

While the final details are still being shaken out, one thing is for sure: This Twitter account, which appears to belong to Nadella, is a time capsule. The follower count jumped by over 2,000 followers after Thursday's news, and it's now up over 3,700 as of Friday afternoon.

Complete with egg avatar, no bio, broken links and a last update 1,299 days ago, the page looks more like your grandma's Twitter than one for the potential new CEO of one of the world's biggest tech companies. Most of the tweets take place around the time Nadella was negotiating Twitter's first search deal with Microsoft.

Microsoft said it had no comment on the Twitter account.

Let's have a look at some of the best tweets:

He can make fun anywhere, any way.

He works hard, and he's not afraid to tell you about it.

Ah, the age old Tuscan tradition of refactoring the spaghetti.

See what he did here?

The gauntlet. It has been laid down (in 2010).
