Oprah endorses Microsoft's Surface with a tweet sent from... an iPad
The new Windows 8 and its phone counter-part Windows Phone 8 along with the flagship devices like the Microsoft Surface clearly rely a lot on celebrity endorsement. Microsoft has kicked off an ad campaign with Jessica Alba and Gwen Stefani for the phones, and now Oprah is praising the Microsoft Surface in any way she can.

She has tweeted about it saying: “Gotta say love that SURFACE! Have bought 12 already for Christmas gifts. #FavoriteThings” You’d assume she loves it and uses it all the time, right? Well, she might like it, but she is clearly not using it. That very tweet actually came from an iPad.

And it’s pretty obvious as the tweet itself was sent via Twitter for iPad. Whoops, that’s weird.

Chances are it is not Oprah herself tweeting all the time, but rather someone from her staff that messed this up. And she might still like it. But this does not ultimately matter. The endorsement message seems pretty much lost on us.
