Celeb Tweets Samsung Galaxy S4 Love — From an iPhone

By now this should be celebrity endorser rule No. 1: Make sure that when you tweet your love for a phone, you do it from that phone.

But, once again the rule has been broken, this time by Spanish tennis player David Ferrer, tweeting his affection for Samsung’s Galaxy S4, and doing so from an iPhone.

According to AppleInsider, the tweet was quickly deleted and replaced with one not sent from an iPhone.

But, of course, the change came only after people noticed, saved a copy of the tweet and began pointing out the obvious contradiction between stated opinion and the real world.

Ferrer is in good company with other celebs who have made similar moves, including singer Alicia Keys, who briefly continued to tweet from her iPhone after accepting a gig as creative director for BlackBerry.
