Marc Andreessen isn’t the only geek sending out multiple tweets at once to explain himself — now Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is, too.

Nadella took to Twitter Tuesday evening to share his thoughts on the “more personal computing era,” sending out a series of seven tweets — nearly 10 percent of his entire tweet history — that described four characteristics of the era he referenced: “People centered,” “data fueled,” “balanced monetization,” and “more human.”

Nadella started with this warning:

That’s a nod to Andreessen, who has been engaging in similar tweet marathons lately and told the New York Times that he wishes Twitter’s character limit was increased from 140 to 400.

Nadella’s hat tip to SnapChat CEO Evan Spiegel was something that he mentioned earlier Tuesday during his talk at the Re/code Code Conference in California. As Business Insider notes here, Nadella said we’ve entered the “post-post-PC era,” — an phrase he thought of after reading what Spiegel had said during a speech in January about the age of the “More-Personal Computer.”

Here are Nadella’s six other tweets:

And here’s some initial reaction from the Twitter world (don’t think anyone has used seven consecutive tweets to respond, yet):

    “Data is our most precious natural resource. Our task is to refine data into the fuel for more personal experiences”

    This is just so much wrong-headed bullshit it boggles the mind. Engaged Users is the most precious resource. Everything else is a byproduct.

    If they don’t figure this out, and incorporate it into their DNA, they’re going to go the same route as Zynga, Dell, HP, etc.
