Whoops! BlackBerry Creative Director Alicia Keys Tweets From iPhone!
After being announced as BlackBerry’s Global Creative Director less than two weeks ago, pop diva Alicia Keys claims her Twitter account was hacked after a specious tweet from an iPhone was sent under her name.
[quote]”What the h*ll?!!!! Looks like I’ve been hacked… I [email protected] but that wasn’t my tweet :-(” she posted shortly after the offending missive.[/quote]
As the Verge reports, Alicia Keys today offered the profound thought: “Started from the bottom now were here,” to all of her Twitter followers. This obvious spontaneity seems to have been sent from a Twitter for iPhone app.
It was removed shortly afterward.
Keys is the latest celebrity to experience problems with social media as tech companies look to cultural icons to push their products in mainstream markets. In 2012, Oprah used an iPad to send out a number of tweets endorsing Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet. However, this particular situation is a bit more interesting considering Keys has a paid position on the actual BlackBerry team; not just a promoter.
Pocket-Lint offers a tantalizing glimpse of her dressing room at the Grammys. There, not one, but two iPhones are to be seen on her dressing table.
An iPhone 4S is positioned so close to Keys’ fingers that all she would have to do is lift her arm up and her extremities would naturally meet its keyboard and want to communicate.
