Samsung sponsored athlete tweets about his Galaxy S4 using an iPhone

Companies who pay celebrities to tweet about their device need to do some screening before turning these folks loose on the internet. In yet another well-intentioned, but embarrassing tweet, Spanish tennis player David Ferrer crooned about his Galaxy S4 using an iPhone. The tweet said Ferrer said was “configuring S Health on my new #GalaxyS4 to help with training @SamsungMobile,” but the tagline on the tweet shows that it originated not from an Android app, but from “Twitter for iPhone.”

This isn’t the first time such a public faux pas has been picked up by the masses. Earlier this year, Alicia Keys was caught tweeting from an iPhone, while she claimed to be a diehard BlackBerry user and was a public spokeswoman for the Canadian company. Last year, Orpah also professed her love for the Microsoft Surface tablet while tweeting from her iPad.
