It’s surprising to see how active smartphone brands are on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. This is where they can generate the traction they need to escalate the potential of any upcoming or pre-existing products and reckon the sales. Posts on these platforms are properly vetted before they go live. However, how often do OEMs make a goof-up you ask? Turns out OnePlus India made a major goof-up today as it posted a promotional tweet on its official Twitter handle @OnePlus_IN.
The tweet reads “The enhanced #SPen is my weapon of choice” along with a video of Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra with an SPen. Well, OnePlus India realized the mistake pretty soon and deleted the tweet, however, the damage has already been done.
Twitter users already took screenshots of this massive blunder which had many laugh at their bellies as to why this happened.
One possible reason is that both OnePlus and Samsung’s social media accounts are handled by the same social media managing agency. An employee likely forgot to switch the accounts before posting the tweet only to delete hundreds and thousands of users who saw it already. Another probable reason could be an employee venting off his anger against OnePlus although the former explanation seems more likely.
OnePlus is already deep in talks regarding its throttling issues with the OnePlus 9 and 9 Pro took advantage of this blunder. Another tweet went live from OnePlus_IN that reads “You’re welcome @SamsungMobile. If you wanna send an “accidental” tweet for the Nord 2, we’d be cool with it”.
