Apple’s Tim Cook recently posted about his product announcement on Twitter and Google tried to take a dig at Cook. However, Google itself became part of the troll as he was found tweeting from an iPhone.

It appears that Google immediately noticed this and tried to take a dig at Apple. While doing so, Google’s social team remembered that the dig they were trying to pull is from the iPhone itself.

Google’s tweet via its official US account read “Hmmmm OK, I see you. #TakeNote @NBA fans… #TeamPixel is here to get you closer to your favorite team – tell us yours and we’ll share your NBA tip- Might be able to make Off even better.”
Netizens immediately noticed this and started trolling Google. Many big media personalities and YouTubers saw this and the search became difficult for Google. However, soon after, Google removed the tweet and retweeted it using Twitter’s web app. But many users took screenshots of Google’s tweet before deleting it.
For starters, this isn’t the first time we’re seeing it. Earlier Samsung and other smartphone brands were seen doing the same and it continues to do so.
In contrast, Apple was seen doing something similar. Although it wasn’t about a hardware product, Apple Music’s Twitter account promoting its Music app tweeted from an Android phone.
