Two Huawei Employees Punished for Posting Company Tweet From iPhone

Share

The incident comes amid escalating diplomatic tensions between China and the USA, which has seen Washington raise security and espionage concerns over the Chinese tech giant and its chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou arrested in Vancouver on December 1.

Video producer Marques Brownlee shared a screenshot of the post with his three million Twitter followers before Huawei deleted it and sent another, this time marked "sent via Twitter Media Studio". This is not the first time that we have seen the Twitter handle of major Android OEMs tweeting from an iPhone. However, the response seems over the top, especially when you consider that it was devised as a workaround to deal with an unforeseen technical issue involving a outsourced company.

Reuters says the two people responsible for the tweet have had their salaries reduced 5,000 yuan (~$730) per month over the error, as it showed procedural incompliance and management oversight. Washington is also reportedly encouraging US allies to stop using the Chinese company's phones and network equipment. The firewall in China is pretty strong, and a number of VPN's no longer work, to access sites that are blocked within China's borders.

Apple may have not sold as many iPhones as it would have wanted during the Christmas quarter, but the iPhone remains the most coveted smartphone out there. Even T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere promoted Samsung Mobile's Note 3 phablet using his iPhone 5s. The Chinese technology giant is behind Samsung, which recently took legal action after one of its brand ambassadors was seen using an iPhone.

It is not the first time that use of the Apple product has given cause for embarrassment. So the South Korean company has made a decision to sue her over the issue, for $1.6 million, and will likely void the contract as well. Think about it. If you are working for a smartphone company, yet you are not using their phone for promoting their devices, or tweeting on their official accounts, it looks pretty bad. The content itself was trivial, significantly spicy, the four words that were displayed directly in the message were: "Via Twitter for iPhone".
