No man was more foolish when he had not a pen in his hand, or more wise when he had - Samuel Johnson
A FAMOUS ATHLETE has gushed about his new Samsung Galaxy S4 on micro-blogging website Twitter, however he sent the tweet from his iPhone.
David Ferrer, who apparently is the fourth ranked tennis player in the world, tweeted about how happy he was with his spanking new Galaxy S4 on Monday, possibly because he might have been given a free handset by the Korean firm.
Ferrer tweeted about the software features of Samsung's latest flagship smartphone, as if to suggest that he will actually use them. He said, "I'm happy with my new Galaxy S4, setting up S Health on my Galaxy S4 to help me with my training."
However, Ferrer made a bit of a blunder by sending his Galaxy S4 love tweet using his iPhone, with the tweet displaying a "Sent via Twitter for iPhone messaging" tagline. Unsurprisingly, he quickly deleted the tweet.
This isn't the first time that a celebrity has made such an embarrassing mistake. Just days after being named as Blackberry's creative director, Alicia Keys was also caught tweeting from her iPhone.
However, Keys was quick to claim that she had been hacked, despite the tweet containing song lyrics from a song she had collaborated on with Drake.
She said, "What the h*ll?!!!! Looks like I've been hacked...I like @Drake but that wasn't my tweet." Yeah, likely story.
Ferrer has yet to mention his slip-up, and is probably going to pretend that it never happened. He has tweeted since, but it looks like he has stopped doing so from his iPhone. µ
