TOR110-BLACKBERRY-LAUNCH

Someone at BlackBerry made a hilarious mess up on Tuesday when plugging the new BlackBerry Classic in a tweet that was sent on an iPhone.

While Twitter’s first party apps don’t show what device a tweet is sent from, third-party apps like Tweetbot show the crime committed in BlackBerry’s case. You’d think its new QWERTY-touting phone would be perfect for typing a tweet.

Tuesday’s tweet has since been deleted, but luckily The Verge was able to snag a screenshot for hysterics sakes.

It’s sad to say this isn’t BlackBerry’s first social media blunder, as its “Creative Director” Alicia Keys posted from her iPhone with a Drake lyric last year. Of course, she said she was hacked.

    I always wondered why they dropped that “Posted from–” stuff from their official platforms.

    Why “accidentally”? Why “epic fail” in comments etc…etc? I don’t see anything weird about that. Why should all Blackberry employees use BB. I’m anyone is allowed to use any device… even for official tweets. Nothing wrong with that.

      It’s the “official twitter account” from Blackberry.

      They should, at least, show that they are using their phone.
