Huawei staff punished after official tweet posted via iPhone

Legend

Two Huawei employees who sent a message from the Chinese telecom firm's Twitter account using an iPhone device have been punished, a memo says.

The tweet, posted on New Year's Day, wished followers a "Happy #2019" while displaying "via Twitter for iPhone".

Chinese companies have been trying to steer employees toward Huawei products and away from US rival Apple.

Last year, Huawei overtook Apple in the number of handsets shipped worldwide, making it second only to Samsung.

On Friday, a report by Reuters news agency - citing an internal company memo - said that the Huawei staff involved in the Twitter blunder had been demoted and would be receiving reduced salaries.

The new year message was quickly removed from Huawei's official Twitter feed but was shared by users of the social media site.

Ouch thats was a mistake! I can see the poor staff members faces when they realised what happened. it's likely they didn't know it would show the source of the tweet i.e. iPhone   There's a funny side but these employees might end up losing their jobs for this type of blunder!

They only for a reduction in their pay for promoting their competition
