  • It's all about Apple as it blames China

Chinese tech giant Huawei has made a decision to punish two of its employees for sending a tweet through an iPhone. Huawei has said, in an internal memo that it has demoted those responsible, dropping them down one level. Once pay is restored it will not increase again until at least twelve months have elapsed.

"The incident caused damage to the Huawei brand", corporate senior vice-president and director of the board Chen Lifang wrote in the memo, noting that employees must now "tighten management of suppliers and partners" because the incident "exposed flaws in our processes and management". See, a platform such as Twitter is markedly popular for brands, and with some Twitter clients, users can see what device is being used to send a Twitter message (the official Twitter app for Android and iOS has since activated the feature too). However, the response seems over the top, especially when you consider that it was devised as a workaround to deal with an unforeseen technical issue involving a outsourced company. If you are wondering what can be wrong with a simple tweet that reads "Happy #2019", we should tell you that it was tweeted from an iPhone.

According to Reuters, Twitter and several other services from Facebook Inc and Alphabet Inc are blocked in China, where the Internet is heavily censored.

One of the pair was head of Huawei's digital marketing team, according to the memo circulated among the public and government relations team as well as a number of employees in the consumer business unit.

Huawei has now caught up with Apple in the ranking of the largest smartphone manufacturer.

The Problem had originated from Reuters, because Tweets are usually sent via a Desktop PC, Twitter of censorship reasons in China but is not accessible. Huawei's tweet publicly displayed "Twitter from iPhone" below the message thanks to this recent Twitter change.

Unfortunately, the tweet was posted using an iPhone.

Tensions with Huawei especially have reached new heights since its CFO, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada last month at Washington's request, on suspicion of engaging in conspiracies to defraud multiple financial institutions and contravene USA sanctions on Iran, Sputnik reported.
