Samsung Nigeria tweets update using Apple iPhone

Samsung Mobile's promotional Twitter account in Nigeria has been caught sending updates about the Korean firm's phones via an Apple iPhone. YouTuber Marques Brownlee spotted the mistake and shared an image of a tweet sent out using the iPhone Twitter app. The Samsung Nigeria account has now been reinstated, but the offending tweets have been removed from its historical feed. In September, Mr Brownlee noticed that Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, who was paid by Samsung to promote its Pixel 2 phone, sent the tweets via an iPhone app. The most infamous example of this practice took place in Russia when Samsung brand ambassador Ksenia Sobchak was photographed in public and on TV using an Apple iPhone X. Samsung sued her for $1.6m claiming breach of contract.
