Tennis Icon Serves Up Some Galaxy S4 Love From His iPhone
Everyone, it seems, is tweeting about the new Galaxy S4. Ordinarily, that would be great for Samsung. But, in this case, some of the most high-profile tweets are originating from iPhones.
Triggering a tidal wave of snide comments and jabs, Spanish tennis superstar David Ferrer tweeted his followers (all 350,000 of them) on Tuesday to praise Samsung's new flagship smartphone. The message might have kept the focus of social media users on the new Samsung phone if not for the ironic reality that Ferrer posted the tweet from his Apple iPhone.
The Huffington Post (Spanish edition) subsequently published a comprehensive follow-up on the matter. Although Ferror quickly pulled down the tweet and its "via Twitter from iPhone" designation, the PR
damage was done.
Perhaps Alicia Keys, who infamously resumed tweeting from her iPhone after announcing a new "exclusive" relationship with BlackBerry, will give Ferror a call (on one of his competing devices) to swap embarrassing smartphone war stories.
