LOOK: MVP tweets he’s now using 5G Huawei phone, but netizens spot he’s actually using iPhone
MANILA, Philippine — Business tycoon Manny Pangilinan may be proud to own a new 5G Huawei phone, but netizens were quick to spot that he wasn’t using the device.
The PLDT Chair and CEO tweeted on Tuesday that he now owns a Huawei phone with super-fast 5G internet.
“Got my 5G phone. Huawei. Using it now, on Smart 5G network in central parts of Makati. Wow. Super speed. Exciting,” Pangilinan said.
However, he may have outed himself that he was not using his Huawei phone when he made the announcement. Some were quick to point out that his tweet had the mark “Twitter for iPhone.”
His tweet became viral, having 133 retweets and 932 likes, as of this writing.
Pangilinan’s tweet also garnered several reactions from netizens, with one even using a GIF image to comment.
