According to media reports two Huawei employees who sent a new year message from Huawei’s Twitter account using an Apple iPhone device have been punished, a memo says.
The tweet which was posted on New Year’s Day, wished followers a “Happy #2019” while displaying “via Twitter for iPhone” and this of cause was picked up online.
A report by Reuters news agency – citing an internal company memo – said that the Huawei staff involved in the Twitter blunder had been demoted and would be receiving reduced salaries. The new year message was quickly removed from Huawei’s official Twitter feed but was shared by users of the social media site. The memo went on to say this was linked to “VPN problems” with a desktop computer and it had “caused damage to the Huawei brand”
