This is why the fact that the New Year's greetings from the official account of Huawei arrived with the words "via Twitter for Iphone" created a stir and many comments on social media. However, despite the calls for a boycott, it appears Huawei has forgotten to instruct its public relations representatives about it because they were caught using an iPhone.

With Twitter now having added back the source of how a Tweet was Tweeted, everyone can see where everyone is tweeting from these days, and that includes official brand accounts like Huawei's.

The formulation shows that the Tweet was not sent from a Huawei Smartphone with the Android operating system, but from a phone of its competitor Apple.

In a furry of patriotic displays, many Chinese consumers and companies have vowed to stop using U.S. products including Apple iPhones in support of Huawei and Meng.

It is not the first time that use of the Apple product has given cause for embarrassment. The Korean company sued a brand ambassador for $1.6 million for a similar marketing misstep that involved an iPhone. The tweet was later removed, and she claimed that her account had been hacked.
