The employees' VPN of choice was causing problems on the day the tweet was supposed to go out, and they were anxious they'd miss the midnight deadline, so they used an iPhone with a roaming SIM to send the tweet. YouTuber, MKBHD had spotted the tweet which carried the label "Twitter for iPhone".

On New Year's Eve, two employees accidentally posted a new year's greeting on Huawei's official Twitter account using an iPhone.

The earnings miss shows how the trade war is enveloping one of the biggest USA brand names, which had worked hard to gets its product exempted from tariff lists released by the Trump administration.

Reuters explains that this trick was necessary because Chinese internet censorship limits access to foreign services such as Twitter, meaning users must use a VPN to connect to them.

Now, Reuters and Bloomberg are reporting that Huawei leadership was furious about the gaffe. Though the company deleted the tweet immediately, the screenshots of the same went viral as the fact that Android Phone makers are caught using iPhones.

However, it has also been reported that the fingerprint sensor the company will use would be optical in nature and not ultrasonic. The A50 will reportedly hit the market in two variants - 64 GB storage and 128 GB storage - and likely run on Android 9 Pie.

Although the blunder was made by a third-party social media company, called Sapient, the pair were disciplined for the "negative impact" on the Huawei brand caused by the incident, which highlighted "procedural incompliance and management oversight", the memo said.

According to an internal memo seen by Reuters and Bloomberg, Huawei blamed a supplier it hired to handle its social media operations overseas.

Neither firm has responded to requests for comment, but the memo revealed that two employees had been demoted and had their salaries reduced. One of the pair was head of Huawei's digital marketing team, according to the memo circulated among the public and government relations team as well as a number of employees in the consumer business unit.

Wednesday was the first time that Apple issued a warning on its revenue guidance ahead of releasing quarterly results since the iPhone was launched in 2007.

In December, Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada at the behest of authorities in the United States where she is wanted on suspicion of violating sanctions against Iran.
