A famous YouTube tech personality Marques Brownlee yesterday posted a photo on twitter displaying Samsung Mobile Nigeria Twitter handle displaying a post on their twitter account that advertises Samsung Galaxy S9 but was showing “Twitter for iPhone” which means that the person in charge of posting the information must have used an iPhone.
His tweet went viral as many Nigerians commented on it. One twitter user, replying said “Please change to a Samsung phone at least. This is a bad look.” Another user who is also a Nigeria tweeted “samsung mobile NG is using iphone to tweet” while another user wrote “Who the hell is handling @samsungmobileng account” You can read the all the comments as well as the post by Mr Brownlee here.
Might as well add “Twitter police” to my bio at this point 🤦♂️ pic.twitter.com/DRlrXl7bak

The tweet was embarrassing, why will an advert to persuade people to buy a Samsung flagship smartphone be tweeted with an iPhone?
Brownlee also reported later on that the account, that is, Samsung Mobile Nigeria, was possible blocked. A further investigation from Android Boss revealed that it is likely that the account wasn’t blocked but the tweet was deleted by Samsung Mobile Nigeria as the post which was dated November 25, 2018 cannot be found as one of the tweet from the Nigeria’s representative of Samsung Mobile.
This act is gross irresponsibility and only revealed that many Nigerians may still prefer an iPhone than a Samsung flagship. However, Samsung is known for its quality AMOLED display, which is more better than other smartphones producers. What do you think of this?
