This weekend we have the latest case of a company’s tweeting ads for its products from an iPhone. This time, Samsung tweeted a Galaxy Note 9 campaign from “Twitter for iPhone.”
Samsung’s Nigerian Twitter account shared the tweet, which adorned the Samsung Galaxy Note 9s Super AMOLED screen. The tweet was first discovered by MKBHD Technical Examiner .
Since MKBHD discovered the tweet, Samsung has not only deleted the tweet, but also the entire Samsung Nigeria account. It was previously housed in @SamsungMobileNG but now there is no account to be found.
It appears that the Nigerian Samsung account is the only one that made this mistake. The Saudi Arabian Samsung account shared a similar tweet earlier this month, sent from Twitter to iPhone
Also on listing … the iPhone XS Max’s 6.5-inch OLED screen is generally considered better than Galaxy Not 9’s panel, making this tweet increasingly uncomfortable.
This is really not the first time a person or company has tweeted praise for an iPhone competitor while tweeting from iPhone. Recently, Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot praised Huawei Mate 10 from Twitter for iPhone.
A few years ago, LG fooled the iPhone 6’s “Bendgate” debacle from an iPhone. In 2016, Donald Trump asked for a boycott on Apple while tweeting from his iPhone. Accidents happen, but these “via Twitter for iPhone” gaffes are always humorous.
