Samsung twice promoted the Galaxy Note 9 display on Twitter, using an Apple iPhone

Samsung twice promoted the Galaxy Note 9 display on Twitter, using an Apple iPhone
Samsung's Nigerian Twitter account tweeted a promotional message for the Galaxy Note 9, which focused on the handset's Super AMOLED display. But it appears that whoever was responsible for the tweet wasn't using a Galaxy Note 9 to create and post the message on Twitter. In fact, the tweet wasn't even typed out on a Samsung device, or even an Android flavored phone or tablet.

As odd as this must seem, the tweet clearly shows that the Galaxy Note 9 promotion was created and posted on an Apple iPhone. Once this faux pas was discovered by reviewer Marques Brownlee, Samsung Nigeria removed the tweet and the whole account. But not before a screen grab was posted showing how someone related to Samsung Nigeria uses a handset produced by Samsung's chief smartphone rival.

Samsung's Saudi Arabian Twitter feed also posted a similar promotional message last month for the Galaxy Note 9, which also was tweeted using the Twitter for iPhone app. Perhaps Samsung ought to hand out some free Galaxy Note 9 handsets to its marketing team to prevent this embarrassing situation from happening again.
