David Ferrer Tweets to Promote Samsung Galaxy S4 From an iPhone

Spanish tennis player David Ferrer tweeted to his 368,000 followers to promote the Samsung Galaxy S4 from his iPhone, reports AppleInsider.

Samsung is a sponsor of the Mutua Madrid Open tennis tournament that begins this weekend. Ferrer intended to send out a tweet stating he was very happy with his #GalaxyS4 and that he was "configuring S Health on my new #GalaxyS4 to help with training @SamsungMobile."

Ferrer likely didn't realize that Twitter shows which app a tweet is posted from. In this case, as you can see in the screenshot below, his tweet was posted from Twitter for iPhone.

The tweet was quickly taken down but not before being spotted by Jaime Novoa and the Huffington Post.

This isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened. Oprah's account tweeted to promote the Microsoft Surface from an iPad and Alicia Keys claimed her account was hacked when caught tweeting from an iPhone after being named BlackBerry's Global Creative Director.

Shame on David Ferrer pretending to use SG4! Maybe Samsung could not provide him with one....

i was an apple fan boy but not anymore. Same design again and again. Nothing innovative. No more special. No more to WOW. Yah, I know, Samsung phone is outer part is made up of plastic but inner is unmatchable to apple. it's top notch. However, everybody will put the phone cover afterall. Samsung rocks. apple boring.

Serious? You can't make the outside decent enough yet you make "top notch" internal components? What $hit u smokin, crackhead?
FukStupidGovernment - May 2, 2013 at 4:14pm
Like you said and indeed it's "unmatchable to Apple" lmao

That idiot doesn't know what he's talking about. Probably just another troll paid by Samsung to put down apple and their products. Or he's just angry that he can't afford anything but a crappy Samsung trac phone running an android OS from 2009. Samsung is a company that makes their money by basically putting their logo on poorly designed and engineered knockoffs. Apple designs the software, and the inner and outer hardware/ components. You think Samsung takes as much time with their designing and r&d? Hell no. They make their phones from cheap materials because one… they don't have the talent/engineers to design products like apple. They take existing components, design something, throw them together and call it a product. Unlike apple who designs every aspect of their products, like the displays, chips, the camera components, internal connectors, and even the design of the battery. Samsungs problem is that they still haven't figured out a way to make money off of a product made from better materials. Samsung has 15-20+ phones to apples 1 or 2. And who still makes the most money in total and on a per device basis. Apple does! Thats because they know what their doing. Apple takes their time with products unlike Samsung who throws multiple products together, and calls it "innovation" just to make a buck. Its kind of just like the Korean car companies that compete against American and Japanese car makers. They do the same thing but the quality just isn't the same.

Anyone planning to leave iPhone for the GS4 is going to feel horrible. Apple ecosystem already has you by the balls, or olveries if you're a woman. You'll be back. It's a matter of time. Trust me.
idontlikeappleanymore - May 1, 2013 at 7:45pm
Well I have no reason to lookback at apple products now. - (
idontlikeappleanymore - May 1, 2013 at 7:48pm
Well I have no reason to lookback at apple products now. - (once an apple head). My cellphone is gonna be S4 or HTC 1 instead of my iphone 5. Galaxy Tab 10 is gonna take ipad's place and Samsung laptop with ubuntu (for my networking job) instead of macbook air. Alienware on huge lcd tv instead of mac mini. Do i have to look back on apple products??? Apple got me mad ass hell. You will start getting mad too. Its only a matter of time !

All I read is disaster. I give you 2 months, 3 at the most, before you start compliaing how slow your software is and how often it crashes.

@idontlikeappleanymore --- You're soooooo f#cked! Ha ha ha ha... You're gonna waste soooo much money and become SOOOOOOO frustrated, that you'll feel the world's biggest loser... Mark my words man! (been there, down that, NEVER, EVER again attempting it...)
Jedediah Johnson - May 1, 2013 at 11:03pm
Hey "idontlikeappleanymore" my comment was to you. And you call everyone else stupid?
Vivaelromi - May 1, 2013 at 11:04pm
@dont- same here bud. We're just tying to help you save money. Just stop hating and stick with what you already got.
FukStupidGovernment - May 2, 2013 at 4:03pm
For this moron "Idontlikeappleanymore": I see you are currently in a confused state of mind where you are not sure of whether to ditch Apple and take a chance on trying out these copycats. Guess what? Do whatever you want. Who gives a rat's a$$? My point here is and obviously you are too stupid to get it. This article is about a paid celeb who was paid to advertise a product yet he used a different product to promote another. Get it? How do you feel if you paid him? Cheated? Right. Now you can grasp the point? Fu$kin idiot!
FukStupidGovernment - May 2, 2013 at 4:08pm
As the name says. Don't like Apple? Then why are you here on Apple forum? Get your idiotic a$$ elsewhere playing with your sam$hit. This is for those who want to keep up with news.

i masturbate twice a day.. watching porn in my s3! take that!
Jedediah Johnson - May 3, 2013 at 7:24am
Because that's about the only thing their phones are good for. Made for idiots and suckers who want to watch porn on their phone. Have fun with your Samsung/ android crap in six months when it starts lagging, freezing up, rebooting itself, or totally stops working.
FukStupidGovernment - April 30, 2013 at 9:26pm
What an idiot! Obviously he has not much gray matter.
