Instagram just got a new follower: Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates.

The richest person in the world made his debut on the photo-sharing platform on Friday morning under the username “thisisbillgates” (“billgates” was already taken). His first Instagram post is a slideshow of three photos from Tanzania.

He captioned his photos thus:

“Hello from Tanzania, Instagram! I just had a great lunch with some amazing kids at Kicheba Primary School in Muheza and met Upendo Mwingira, a remarkable physician who has dedicated her career to fighting neglected tropical diseases. Melinda and I have been coming to Tanzania for many years now. I always love seeing how much progress the country has made to improve health and provide opportunity. Plus, the scenery is stunning. Whenever I travel to places like this, I wish others could come along and meet the people I get to meet. I have no doubt it would leave them as optimistic as I am about progress happening around the world. I’ll be sharing photos from my adventures here on Instagram, and I hope you’ll follow along.”


This comes just three weeks after another tech billionaire made his Instagram entrance – Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. For a brief morning on July 27, Bezos usurped Gates’ reign as the richest person in the world on the FORBES’ Real Time Billionaires List. Gates has taken the No. 1 spot on the FORBES annual Billionaires List for 19 or the past 23 years.

Gates also shared this photo

While Bezos’ first post included drone aerial footage to promote his rocket factory, Gates has taken a more subdued tone for his debut by sharing his optimism for progress in the developing world.

Gates is already on Facebook and he has been on Twitter since June 2009. Gates also has a personal blog where he shares a variety of content, from book recommendations to a 360-degree video of Gates interviewing President Jimmy Carter.
