Apart from seeing amazing technologies, we often witness grin-worthy fumbles on the part of tech giants. The most recent entrant in the gaffe list is a new tweet by Samsung.

As per a tweet by Samsung Nigeria’s Twitter handle, the company promoted the Galaxy Note 9’s display, which is posted via an iPhone. The tweet read: “Enjoy stunning cinematic experience on the Galaxy Note 9’s SuperAMOLED Infinity display.”

However, once the goof situation was noticed by renowned YouTuber @MKBHD, not only was the tweet pulled down, the Twitter handle was deleted too.

Another thing worth noting is that the recent iPhone XS Max’s display has won the ‘best smartphone display’ award by DisplayMate, which makes the whole incident a lot more humorous.

Furthermore, this is not the first time tech majors have had their blooper moments which involved Apple as their source of promotion campaigns, all spotted by @MKBHD;

A month back Samsung’s Saudi Twitter account posted a similar tweet, via the iPhone.

The Huawei Mate 10’s promotion by Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot involved an iPhone too.

Way back in 2015, BlackBerry, via Twitter, promoted its Instagram account, also via an iPhone.

While such incidents offer us a laugh we all need, I think tech companies should start using their social media with discretion!
