Earlier this week, Huawei called in 2019 by wishing everyone a great New Year using Twitter for iPhone. However, Reuters reports that Huawei is taking things to a new level by demote the employees responsible for the blunder and slashing their wages.

While Huawei quickly deleted the tweet in question, screenshots went viral – which is often the case when Android manufacturers are caught tweeting from the iPhone. In a note retrieved by Reuters Huawei's vice president Chen Lifang hit the staff responsible for the tweet and said "the incident caused damage to the Huawei brand."
For what happened that led to Huawei's tweeting "Happy New Year" from Twitter for iPhone, the note explains that an outsourced social media administrator experienced problems with his desktop computer, so they turned to a nearby iPhone to send the tweet:  The error occurred when outsourced social media trader Sapient experienced "VPN problems" with a desktop computer, then used an iPhone with a roaming SIM card to send the message on time at midnight, Huawei said in the note.
Furthermore, although the tweet was sent by an outsourced Social Media Handler, Huawei is due in part to internal management. In the note, the company says that the error showed "procedural incompatibility and management monitoring."
In light of the blunder, Huawei has demoted two employees with a rank and reduced the monthly wage by over $ 700 (5,000 yuan). In addition, Huawei says its digital marketing director will also have his salary frozen for twelve months.
While Huawei certainly is not the first Android manufacturer to be caught using Twitter for iPhone – Samsung is a common victim – this is for sure The first time a company's internal response to such a mistake has been made public.
