Huawei demotes two employees for tweeting New Year wishes using iPhone
HONG KONG: China's Huawei Technologies has punished two employees for New Year greetings sent on the smartphone maker's official Twitter account using an iPhone, an internal memo showed
Huawei, whose P-series handsets compete with Apple's iPhone, on New Year's day wished followers a "Happy #2019" in a tweet marked sent "via Twitter for iPhone".
The tweet was quickly removed but screenshots of the blunder spread across social media.
So they don't even have the freedom to use the phone they want.

I have been using Huawei P10 plus for last two years best phone than most of the garbage for price. Last week tested new Huwei P 20 Mate at the shop excellent, picking up in couple of weeks can't beat the price and features.

To tell the truth, most of the corporate never allow their staff members using any competitors products. Yes, it is a fact, though unofficial. Yes, iPhone do insist its staffers to use only its platform & products. Similarly, Google too instructs its staffers to use ONLY Chrome and never ever allow their competitors browsers in their office!
We are not Huawei employees? So why worries?
This is disgusting. Demoted for using iPhone
People on a personal level and do things they want...but need to be careful when indulging with company''s official accounts!!

That is stupidity! Staff has the right to use the phone what they wished to. But the intolerance of the employer target them..

Give Huawei phones to all staff. That will automatically reduce the risk.

Why is this even news? It's the internal matter of a company. How is it important to India?
Whatever it is Huwei top phones can not be as good as top Apple mobiles for the time being
This is sheer nonsense, one should have right to choice. Why not iPhone hire them at double wage.
hahaha. Maruthi guy driving BMW to customer and ask him to buy Maruthi vehicle?? This was a basic expectation. and it was a blunder when missed
