Huawei, who wanted new year via an iPhone on Twitter, has now found the source of the tweet. Now they are being reprimanded.
Huawei allegedly hired a company, Sapient, to manage their social media, which should therefore have shared the tweet from an iPhone. Normally, Sapient uses a desktop computer for tweets, but due to technical issues, they decided to use a mobile phone instead so they could reach the tweet until midnight. Unfortunately, for Huawei and Sapient, it was an iPhone.
Employee salary frozen for 12 months
As punishment for the very unfortunate iPhone tweet, those responsible are now punished. This means that Huawei has reduced the salary for two employees by almost DKK 5,000 per month.
In addition, Huawei’s digital marketing director has been frozen for 12 months.
It’s not the first time you see smartphone manufacturers tweeting via an iPhone, but it’s fun every time it happens.
