Apple’s digital e-book store, the iBookstore, now has its own Twitter account. The account, @iBookstore, is verified as belonging to Apple, and promises to tweet information on “featured books, exclusive offers and more” on a regular basis.

The account’s first tweet was posted yesterday, and read:

Welcome to the AppleĀ #iBookstore on Twitter. Follow us to discover new releases, exclusive book offers, and more.

Since, a further six updates have been posted from the @iBookstore Twitter account, detailing the various e-books and special offers available to users of Apple’s digital book store.

Apple and Twitter already have a great relationship, with the App Store having its own Twitter account and iOS devices gaining Twitter integration in iOS 5.
