You may have heard that BlackBerry thinks your iPhone is worth $550, but the company’s PR team seems to be all Mac all the way. In a story that recalls the work of former “creative director” Alicia Keys, Canadian politician Norm Kelly made an interesting observation yesterday: BlackBerry’s team had tweeted its latest promo from…an iPhone.
Did this really just happen? Tweeting from the official BlackBerry account with an iPhone? pic.twitter.com/6qqm5L10Sz

Yes. Yes, it did; this screenshot from Kelly’s TweetDeck proves it. The team quickly deleted this message, but its symbolism couldn’t be more appropriate.
Unlike Keys, the BlackBerry communications team cannot make the (completely unbelievable) claim that its Twitter account “got hacked.”
(On a side note, we were very amused by Norm Kelly’s repeated attempts to troll Drake into supporting the PR campaign to name Canadian player Kyle Lowry as an NBA All-Star.)
