The problem is that the tweet was sent… from an iPhone.

Of course, Google teams very quickly deleted the tweet, before reposting it via Twitter Web App this time. However, many users have noticed this clumsiness, noting in particular that “even Google teams prefer to use an iPhone rather than a Pixel smartphone“.
