BlackBerry’s official Twitter account has just deleted a tweet that was sent out via iPhone, its top competitor.

BlackBerry tweeted a message Tuesday afternoon promoting its new BlackBerry Classic phone and urging consumers to “keep up with the conversation” on Twitter.

Only problem was the message was sent out via iPhone — a mistake Twitter users wasted no time pointing out. The tweet was deleted shortly thereafter, The Verge reported.

“Did this really just happen?” asked Norm Kelly, a Toronto councilor.

“Someone is getting canned today,” mused Free Beacon analyst Daniel Bassali.

“C’mon Man! Are you guys even trying now?” wrote Alan Gates.

The message, “Twitter for iPhone,” that outed BlackBerry’s mistake, isn’t typically visible in the regular Twitter app, but can be seen using Tweetbot, Tweetdeck and other third-party clients, The Verge reported.
