Samsung's PR Slip Caused by Sending Tweet From an iPhone

Samsung has suffered its first slip-up of 2021. The official Twitter feed of Samsung Mobile US Twitter published a post sent from competitor's device.

Big companies spend a lot of time and effort to carefully craft their image, but even the best ones can slip. Like the Tweet posted recently by Samsung Mobile US. Interestingly, the source of the problem is not the content - this is a fairly standard question related to the advertising of today's Samsung Unpacked event, where the Galaxy S21 smartphone will be announced, among other things. It is about the fact that the Twitter application adds a note next to the date of publication on which device the post was written, and the author of the entry in question used... an iPhone. MacRumors caught this curiosity.

The mistake was quickly fixed (the post was removed from the original source), but the Internet will probably not forget this funny incident.
