Caught red-handed: Google's social media team used an iPhone to post about the Pixel 7
Back in 2018, Samsung used Twitter for iPhone to promote the display of its latest flagship at the time, namely Galaxy Note 9. In early 2021, the company's social media team repeated the mistake by announcing a Galaxy Unpacked event from an iPhone. These are only two such social media failures from a longer list, since Huawei is no stranger to the practice, either. Now, it's all about Google.
Google US has recently replied to a post by Apple's Tim Cook on Twitter with a promotional message that, unfortunately, came from the iPhone variant of the application. This mistake has been spotted by 3D artist Ian Zelbo, who is popular on Twitter for its highly-detailed iPad and iPhone renders. Obviously, many others have seen the message before Google's social media team deleted it.
The aforementioned promotional tweet was posted on October 19 and got a replacement from Google earlier today, when the company's social media team used the Twitter web app instead. Tim Cook's tweet that Google has been replying to is dated October 18 and teases the M2 iPad Pro launch, while Google's message focuses on the latest Pixel models and the NBA.
